Zombie Cupcakes - Horrifically cute cupcake ideas for birthdays or Halloween!

Updated on June 19, 2013

Zombies... Brains... Cupcakes! So you decided you want to make some cool zombie cupcakes? Awesome! I have gathered some of the spookiest, crunchiest and most cool looking zombie cupcake ideas for you to enjoy. Hope you will enjoy these and will be making them for your party!


Zombie Hands Cupcakes

Zombies have a nasty habit of running out of their graves and if you have seen any of the late zombie films you will know that hand sticking out of the grave is somewhat their trademark.

You can't go wrong with this cupcake, I found two cool ways on how to make the zombie hands cupcakes.

First (as on first image) is the easy way with the help of zombie hands cupcake toppers you can purchase. Quick and easy.

Second (shown on the second image) is the more fun way in my opinion but it needs some creativity as you will have to mold the hands by yourself (out of candy) - the whole tutorial can be seen on the video bellow.

Although making the cupcakes on your own will take you more time, they really can look awesome and are worth every minute. Not to mention after you make one or two making of them will become easier and quicker as you will get the hang of it.

Cupcake Kit

These will be especially fun for kids! This kit comes with everything you need to create 8 fun cupcakes (not much, I know). Color, sprinkles, body parts and more!

I think this kit is perfect for little celebrations and to share some fun cupcake creating time with your little one!


Zombie massacre cupcakes

This is one of my favourite zombie cupcake ideas as it is easy to replicate and you don't need any fancy expensive tools!

These simple cupcakes will look great even if you don't have a cupcake stand, on the other hand you can improve the look by placing them on a fancy Halloween stand (such as zombie hand stand).

To decorate these cupcakes you will need a few sheets of green paper, cupcake wrapper template (you can use "old" cupcake wrappers) or you can get a printable cupcake wrapper templates online), black marker, glue and scissors.

As for decorating the cupcake you will need green food coloring and a piping bag (you can also use a plastic bag and cut one edge of - it will be good enough).

Cut the cupcake wrappers and draw in some zombie faces - keep it simple as it is on the picture. You can draw in the hands to or you can cut them out and glue them on the toper to get a more 3D look.



Everyone knows brains are a top dish on any zombie menu! These cupcakes are fun and will look great.

You can make them with some smooth piping (you will find another video if you scroll down a bit showing one way you can decorate your brain cupcakes).

Alternatively you could use molds (I really like the silicon brain ice cube molds) to help you create your brains - either with jell-o, fondant, molding chocolate or just press them in to the butter cream frosting.

Whatever your technique will be don't forget to sprinkle your brain with some red food color or glazing (green will look great to if you are going for a wee bit rotten look).

      I am so sorry I missed this comment! If you keep them in a cold place they would last a few days I think.

      Hi, how long does the Zombie hands made out of candy last? Could I make them a few days before I need them or is it better to make them on the day?
