Last minute Halloween Cupcakes

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Today I thought I would bring you three great last minute Halloween Cupcake ideas!  You may have heard of it already, but Zilly Rosen recently released her book Zombie Cupcakes in the UK.  It is coming to America soon, but the best news is that you don’t have to wait as Made for Moms features three ideas complete with recipe and decoration directions!  There are the Zombie Rising Chocolate Mud Cakes, the Brain Food Honey Cupcakes and last but not least the Bludgeon to Survive Pumpkin Cupcakes.  Check out each of them by clicking on the links.

My favorite?  I can’t go past the Bludgeon to Survive cupcakes shown here, especially as you need to make crowbars, baseball bats and shovels!

But alas, I have already made my cupcakes for this year, zombies with with chocolate ganache filling!  Yummy!

Horror movies for Halloween?

If you are completely done with all the traditional Halloween cupcakes, of ghosts, witches and pumpkins and are looking for something very different, why not take your inspiration from PepsiNZ and create horror movie cupcakes!

She went all out creating heaps of different cupcakes, but you could choose your favorite couple and go with a theme!  I particularly love this one here!

You can see all the horror movie cupcakes on her website Random Crap here.

If you are, then taking a quick trip across to the Cupcake Cauldron might be the answer for you.  Ashley’s blog is a mix of her current creations with a few great cupcake recipes thrown into the cauldron so to speak!  But it is Halloween that she does best, and here are two of her creations.

These show how much magic you can create by just adding a topper!  Of course the cupcake flavor choice is all important as well.  Ashley has used vanilla cake with fudge frosting for Pumpkin and for Skull she used a devil’s food cake with a mini peanut butter cup on the inside and peanut butter frosting on top.

Can’t believe Halloween is now just over a week away!

Montrose Cakes by Grace are known to come up with some pretty fantastic cupcake design ideas, and when I saw their Halloween collection I was delighted!  These cupcakes all work so well individually or together. Death looks stunning as always!  By clicking on either image you can see all the cupcakes close up on Flickr.

I am sooooo looking forward to Halloween this year, so many cool ideas and cupcakes to experiment with!
