For the fans of the popular vampire books, these cupcakes will be irresistible. While not blood red, these cupcakes have a reddish hue from the red velvet cake mix.
1 package (2-layer size) red velvet cake mix
2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1 container (16 ounces) cream cheese frosting
McCormick® Black Food Color
Black jelly beans, for eyes
Red gummy candies, for fangs
Prepare cake mix as directed on package, adding vanilla to batter.
Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool cupcakes on wire rack.
Divide frosting in half. Use half of the frosting to spread a thin layer on cupcakes. Tint remaining frosting black with 1/2 teaspoon black food color. Spoon frosting into small resealable plastic bag. Snip a small corner from bag. Pipe frosting in the shape of a widow’s peak for the vampire’s head. Pipe a line of frosting for the mouth. Use jelly beans for the eyes and gummy candies, cut into triangles, for the fangs.
Test Kitchen Tip: For easier measurement, 1/4 tsp. Food Color = 20 to 25 drops
