This is a favorite at our halloween party every year.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 box store bought red velvet cupcakes
3 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup milk
1 container white cream cheese frosting
1/4 cup raspberry
6 drops red food coloring
1 T water
24 cup cake liners
WHAT TO DO:
In a large bowl combine your cake mix, eggs, milk and oil. Blend on low speed for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes. Pour batter equally into cupcakes liners (makes 24 cupcakes) and bake for 19-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
While the cupcakes bake, mix your “blood.” In a small bowl combine jelly, food coloring and water. Mix until it is a blood like consistency. I pour my mixture into a plastic squeeze bottle but you can just use a spoon if you don’t have one.
Once your cupcakes are cool, frost with cream cheese frosting. Next take a stake like object (a candle, a kobob skewer, a sharp knife) and make two holes, like vampires teeth. Then fill the holes with blood allowing it to drip down. Voila…Your cupcakes have been bitten!
