Friday the 13th Horror Movie Cupcakes

There's a special young man who is turning 13 today.  On Friday the 13th.  So I conspired with his mother to surprise him at his horror movie themed birthday party with some horror movie cupcakes.

I love it when friends just let me do whatever I want!  I ended up making four dozen cupcakes, in four different horror movie inspired designs for the party.

These Creature From the Deep cupcakes  are so easy to make!  And they have a surprise hidden inside: a chocolate filled with gushy, luscious dark chocolate ganache.  Ewwwww (and yum)!

I had to make some Jason masks for a Friday the 13th birthday party.  Obviously.  

Side note: my fingers are still really red from splattering the red food coloring blood all over the cupcakes.  It was totally worth it.

Vanilla cupcakes topped with royal icing and gum paste topper to look like a ghost pushing through a white wall.

I used the same technique here as I did for my ghost-in-the-wall sugar cookies.

Chocolate cupcake with black chocolate icing topped with icing grass and a gum paste sewer grate with a gum paste balloon floating above the grate.  Inspired by the move IT.

A gum paste balloon on a spaghetti string rising from a sewer gate.  Totally freaky if you've read IT by Stephen King or seen either of the film adaptations.

Slasher, ghost, creature feature, and classic evil monster.  I think I represented most styles of horror movies in these cupcakes.

What's your favorite scary movie?  Now I'm in the mood to curl up on the couch and watch a great one tonight.
