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