  • Boxed Vanilla Cake Mix (and ingredients to make)
  • Tub of frosting
  • Strawberry jam
  • Red gel food coloring
  • Zombie gummy candy (brains and eyeballs)
  • Cupcake liners
  • Green sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350℉.

Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.

Make cake mix according to directions.

Put aside about ⅓ of the batter in a bowl.

Add red food coloring.

Use 2 piping bags to fill liners about ¾ full. Alternate plain and red batter. Use more of the plain in each, so the red shows through more. (You can even just use a spoon to alternate each.)

Bake according to directions and allow to cool.

Use a large piping tip to core out the center of each cupcake.

Fill each with strawberry jam.

Frost and add a gummy candy to each cupcake.

Makes 12-16 cupcakes.
