Easy To Make!

This Halloween I wanted to make a cupcake that was cheap, easy to make, original, and fun to take to a Halloween party. The finale scene from the 1976 horror movie Carrie instantly came to mind. All the mayhem of the movie has ended, Sue Snell lays flowers at the for sale sign graffitied with "Carrie white burns in hell!" We are all thinking Sue is paying her last respects to Carrie, as she kneels down, Carrie's hand shoots up and grabs Sue's arm. An unforgettable scene from the movie, it still's makes me jump out of my skin every time I watch it! This is what I wanted to recreate into a cupcake.

The cupcake is filled with strawberry jam to represent that other famous scene. I used doll arms, wooden coffee stirrers and white paper to make these cupcake decorations

      I've read the book and the new movie looks scary but I love the old as it's what I grew up watching. Either way, those yummy and scary looking cupcakes would go great with both movies! :-)

      Carrie is one of the scariest films I've seen - I don't like the being scared so I haven't many many! I love your cupcakes and great lens.

      Carrie isn't a movie I'd ever watch (I'm not a big fan of horror flicks) but your cupcakes are as clever as pie (so to speak)! Thanks for sharing and congrats on your purple star. :D

      I might be too scared!!!! Those look really gory with the dolls' arms dipped in jam. Bet they taste yummy.

      Absolutely NOT! I think they are hilarious and I love a good laugh. But I am too much of a wuss to get too close to any of Stephen King's material. I liked "On Writing"...but horror, no way. Can't handle it.

      You've really managed to make these look really frightening with the arms! But hey, they look delicious.
