No tricks, just treats!

Step 1: I simply followed the instructions on the box for cupcakes and voila, base done!

Step 2: I then intended to make some strawberry compote for delicious blood decor. However, because I only used strawberries, the compote did not turn out very red. Instead, it looked more like smashed brains or guts. I used this easy compote recipe very loosely. It only takes 20 minutes and a couple ingredients that you might already have in your fridge!

*All I used was strawberries and orange juice and it came out perfectly sweet, no sugar added.

Step 3: Next, I took a couple sandwich ziplock bags and cut a corner to insert decorative tip. It didn’t work out so well on the first application, so I opted out of using the tips. I didn’t really have a plan on how I would decorate, so I just did random swooping motions.

Step 4: After the cupcakes had been frosted, I did random drawings and sprinkled randomly on others.

This is the end result!

Some came out cute and some not so much, but I had fun doing it!
