Make Headless Bleeding Gummy Mummy Cupcakes - A Ghoulish Decorating Demo
Headless bleeding gummy mummy cupcake
Have some haunted, headless happenings at home this Halloween.
Do you need a quick, easy cupcake for Halloween that won't take all day but still look great?
Perhaps you want an entirely edible cupcake as opposed to the ones with the paper toppers that are so popular now. Sometimes the smallest kids don't understand that the topper is not to be eaten.
Give the little guys and gals some scary treats that they can eat. Here's a way to have edible toppers that look fantastic with little or no work at all.
Follow along to see how these scary boo, gummy, mummy cupcakes came to be.

Gummies take cupcakes to ghastly and ghoulish places in a flash.
Personally, I'm artistically challenged. To me, cake decorating is an art form. I would love to be talented at it. Sadly, I'm simply not. The well runs dry one could say.
I really admire those who can carve candies and sculpt with frosting but when I try, it it just looks like a big old mess. Do I give up on cool looking cupcakes on the cheap? Not a chance!
Scope out how ridiculously simple these were to pull off. If you need something that will show well quick, like for those class parties in the morning after you just worked overtime, this is ticket.
Scary boo or just cute for you?
Would you rather have really scary themed goodies or more cute sweet treats?
Super simple directions are in the photo gallery below.
Just click through the gallery to see specific directions in the captions.
This can be done to any kind of cupcake you want. It's really fast, fun and the kids can do it.
To make your mummies last longer, or any kind of gummy candies, keep them in the refrigerator to prevent sticking and melting.

Remember to save the heads you cut off for the headless mummies to make mummy heads on stakes!

Which topper do you like best?
Cutting off the heads allows for more cupcakes made from the same box of gummy candies.
It's actually a really cost effective way to get double duty out of your gummy candies while letting the mummy population know what will happen if they try to invade.
If you can't find a gummy version you like, look at Halloween themed suckers. You can stick them straight into the cupcake and it looks great.
Want to go horrible this Halloween? Go headless!
My dear departed ghostly friend has come to a most untimely end. What was his misfortune to endure for us becomes cupcakes du jour!
It kind of brings a whole new meaning to the phrase biting someone's head off, huh?
Toppers add something extra to a cupcake quickly and easily.
Chocolate or vanilla, which do you want?
Be they candy, cookie, paper or plastic, toppers take ordinary to extraordinary.
Ghosts and wiches, vampires, sprites and frights, do you really have the courage to go out tonight?
The one night of the year when the dead come back to life, watch out dear, the one behind you might make you his wife!
I like to do some with chocolate frosting and some with vanilla.
This mummy got sliced when he tried to sneak into the party. It's a bloody business.
Always find out if any of your expected guests have allergies. Some of the most common food allergies pertaining to cupcakes are those to peanuts and peanut products, red dye, eggs and gluten.
If doing cupcakes for class parties, always call the teacher to find out about what to avoid. If being the teacher, get signed parental permission before distributing. Believe it or not, you can be sued for giving out cupcakes and won't have a legal leg to stand on.
