Bloody Finger & Monster Cupcakes

Thanks to everyone for your nice comments on my last post on Halloween cupcakes.  I still have more Halloween cupcakes for you and this time they are more on the creepy side.  The first creepy cupcake is a bloody finger I made out of modeling chocolate.  I basically just free-formed the modeling chocolate to look like a finger and then added some accents to make it look more realistic.  Here are some photos of the process.

First shape the modeling chocolate into a finger form and make an indent for the nail bed.

Then use a toothpick to make ridges on the finger to make it look more realistic and to give it some shape. Also take a little piece of modeling chocolate and form a finger nail.   Before you add the finger nail put some red food coloring on the nail bed so you can see blood around the edges.

Then adhere the nail.  Next add some blood marks around the finger.

You can also add some luster or petal dust around the finger to make it look a little dirty and give it some definition.

The next cupcake I made was a monster cupcake.  It is definitely a free form monster and you can change around the look anyway you like.

First you need to form some green fondant into random size creepy legs.  Then let them dry so that they hold shape.  You can again dust them with luster dust so that they have a little shimmer to them.

Then roll out some yellow fondant and cut out a circle for the monster’s eye.  Once it has dried a little you can use an edible marker to make the black accent on the eye.

Then just stick the dried legs randomly into the cupcake so they won’t fall out and place the eye in the center. 

Hope you try them out!

  31. minko says:

    Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww gross. That finger is creepy

  32. Vera says:

    Melody, these fingers are something! I bet kids would love them :)

  33. Nick says:

    I especially like the monster cupcake because it looks exactly like the alien monsters from The Simpsons, Kang and Kodos, mostly known for their appearances in all the Halloween episodes. Did you mean to do that?

  34. Nick says:

    And by the way, that Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is perfect for someone trying to lose weight! It’s only got fruit, nonfat yogurt and a vegetable in it! And adding the peanut butter imparts creaminess as well as heart-healthy, fat-burning fats! Certainly better for you than bloody finger cupcakes =)

  35. Fen says:

    How do you get to make it so real-life. My goodness, I don’t know if I have the guts to put that finger in my mouth… Geez… sending goosebumps even when looking at it…

  36. Alexa says:

    I am impressed with your skills. These would be a big hit at a kids’ party. I couldn’t bring myself to eat the finger. Does that mean I am a grown-up? Oh, no… got to do something about that.

  37. Irene says:
