Zombie Bait Cupcakes

If you are trying to evade a zombie horde, you might want to make a batch {or several} of these, put them where you aren't, and the zombies will go for them instead of you.

And if you aren't trying to evade a zombie horde - definitely eat these cupcakes!  They are to-die-for delicious.  {may even be worth it if you are going to have to become a zombie}



Zombie Bait Cupcakes


Cupcakes

  • 2 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup salted butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift flour, sugar and baking powder into a large mixing bowl and then mix together on low.

In another bowl, stir egg whites, milk and vanilla together.  Add butter to the flour mixture and mix together. As it starts to combine, slowly pour the milk mixture in and mix until completely combined.

Line a muffin tins with 16 baking cups.  Fill baking cups a little more than halfway. Bake for about 15 minutes or until cupcakes bounce back when touched lightly.  Remove and cool. Makes about 16 cupcakes.



Frosting

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 4 teaspoons milk
  • pink (or red) food coloring
  • cupcake wrappers (either purchase them or print your own - like these)

Beat butter and vanilla together.  Add sugar slowly and beat until combined.

Scrape down the sides and add milk. Mix until smooth and creamy.  Add pink food coloring a drop at a time to make a light pink frosting {zombies might sense a trap if the frosting is too pink}







Fill a piping bag with the frosting.  Pipe a base of frosting onto each cupcake.  Then, starting at one end of each cupcake on the top, make a line of frosting on the other side.  Then zig-zag back to where you started. Repeat with the other side to finish the brains!  Repeat until all of the cupcakes are "brained".



Slip the cupcakes into the cupcake wrappers and get ready for the invasion!





I predict that these will be gone immediately - zombies or not.
