Bloody Cupcakes

I volunteered to make cupcakes for my husband’s office Halloween party today. Had fun making them last night.

I asked David to pick up some food coloring on the way home so I could turn my vanilla icing into a pumpkin orange. As I spilled the food coloring over the white icing, I noticed how blood-like the color looked before mixing. Gave me an idea (a terrible, awful idea).

I said to David, “How about if I add the ‘Dexter‘ touch to these cupcakes after we decorate them?”

I got out a clean toothbrush and had some fun, dripping and spattering the red food coloring all over the place.

I leaned in close to view my handiwork.

The innocent little pumpkins on top ended up looking like erupted bloody pustules (eeewww!).

I’ve always enjoyed the “spattering” technique of painting. This is the first time I’ve used it for any kind of macabre project. Super fun!
