Eyeball Cupcakes

Our Halloween party with the Zombie Prom theme is happening tonight. I am spending the day decorating and cooking all sorts of human/ meat/ flesh themed foods.

I am SO happy with the things that I have finished so far that I wanted to share them. These are my eyeball cupcakes!

I got the idea when I found these gummy eye balls at the dollar store.

I made my cupcakes and started with some peach colored frosting. Then I unwrapped and placed a gummy eye on each cupcake.

Then I used a frosting tip with a long thin slash. I am pretty sure it's the one you use to make roses. I used it to make a long thin strip of frosting where the top and bottom eyelids go.

Finally, I used melted chocolate in a piping bag to add eye lashed and eyebrows.

This did take a pretty good understanding of the anatomy of the eye AND of frosting techniques. They also took some time to get the details right, but thats OK. Who needs sleep? My eyes are wide awake!

Disturbing! In the best way, of course.
