What do you need to make these Halloween eyeball cupcakes?
Pick up some store bought cupcakes with white frosting, a package of gummy eyeballs, and some blood glaze (or make your own), and you have some creepy cupcakes perfect for a Halloween party!
How do you make these Halloween eyeball cupcakes?
These could not be easier! I use the Wilton Blood Glaze, and it seems you can only find this at JoAnn’s.
Get cupcakes with white frosting.
Place a gummy eyeball on each cupcake at the middle top of the frosting.
Then, use the blood glaze to trace around the bottom edge of the eyeball. Then, add 5-6 drips going down the frosting all around the eyeball.
Do this to all the cupcakes. That’s it! You’re done!
How do I make edible blood glaze?
If you can’t find the Wilton’s blood glaze, you can mix corn syrup with red and blue food coloring, You’ll need a couple tablespoons of light corn syrup.
Then, when mixing the food coloring, you’ll want 4 drops of red food coloring for 1 drop of blue food coloring. Work slowly with the food coloring until you achieve the desired color.
Transfer it to a squeeze bottle to put it on the cupcakes.
Can I make these eyeball cupcakes ahead of time?
I would recommend not adding the blood glaze until an hour or so before you need them. Keep them refrigerated until just before you need them. The blood glaze could soak into the frosting if it gets too warm and not look so creepy.
