HOWTO Bake vampire cupcakes that bleed

Claire sez, "Maybe I've seen one too many horror movies already this year, but I'm totally into the idea of a Hallowe'en cupcake that bleeds when you bite into it. Especially since they bleed cherry filling (actual blood would probably put me right off cupcakes)."
I baked my cupcakes, used the cupcake-filling technique I used on my devil's food cupcakes to fill the cakes up with pureed cherry pie filling (canned or homemade) and topped them off with white icing to best accentuate the red bite marks. I made the marks using a skewer dipped in leftover cherry filling, making sure to leave a clear impression of a fang bite, rather than just a red streak on top of the cake.

  1. Hey, waitaminute… I thought Cory didn’t EAT sugar! Is someone back on the sweet horse of deliciousness?

    These are the best things I have ever seen. If only Halloween weren’t on a stupid weekday this year (I’ve never been able to have Halloween parties on other days–it just seems sad to me).
