Easy To Make Zombie Cake

Are you planning an awesome halloween or zombie party? Cupcakes are a staple for any party, today I'm joined by master bakeress Ann Marie McEnroe and we're going to show you one fun and easy way to decorate undead mini cakes anyone will love this Fall. Cupcake decorating is not in my repertoire of skills so I've called in for some help from a good friend who is dynamite at Do-it-Yourself creative and unique icing decorations. If I can do this- anyone can. Stick around to find out how we've married machine embroidery + cake which I'm sure will inspire you!

What You'll Need:
Baking Supplies
Wilton Cake Decorating Tip #233
Zombie Embroidery Design Completed (TrashN2Tees Whippersnapper Collection)
Leaf Green Wilton Coloring
Oreo Cookies

1. Follow my original Fimo Embroidery tutorial on the BERNINA We All Sew blog to complete the zombie cupcake sticks. Before baking on Fimo clay- insert tooth pick between embroidery and clay. Bake as directed.

2. Remove the scrumptious (I won't tell anyone if you eat them all!) Oreo middle and place the chocolate wafers in a zip lock bag. Use a rolling pin to crush cookies into chunky 'dirt' mixture. You'll use about 2 cookies crushed up per cupcake.

3. Mix color concentrate in with your white icing. Add small drops until you create the color you're trying to achieve. Feel free to check out How To Color Icing for more in-depth instructions.

4. Start shoveling (my term not Ann Maries!) the green icing into a pastry bag with the Wilton #233 tip that will help up create 'grass' texture onto the cupcake. Tip: You'll see in the next step how we tapered the cupcake so the center was higher.

5. Hold the bag 90 degrees up. Squeeze the bag to form grass then pull up and away from the cupcake releasing pressure when it's long enough. Continue creating grass around the outside bottom edge working your way up but stop near the top. Leave the center 1.5'' icing free.

6. Sprinkle a teaspoonish amount of crumbled oreo 'dirt' to create a mount in the center of the cupcake. Add zombie embroidery pick to finish off the cupcake!
