Halloween vanilla vampire cupcakes recipe

Make your Halloween party table spooky AND yummy with these vanilla vampire cupcakes.

Serving Size:

12 cupcakes




Spread each cupcake with buttercream icing.

Now use the red icing tube to dab two dots of red onto each cupcake.

Use a toothpick to drag the red colouring down vertically, like bloody fang marks (see video).


  • This cake decoration is so simple you could get the kids to do it and tick off a fun Halloween activity in the process.
  • If you find making a quantity of buttercream icing just one step too far on a busy day, buy a can of Betty Crocker buttercream icing at the supermarket instead.
