I was inspired by some dead fondant, to create this monstrosity Okay, maybe I did it because I have zombies on the brain...haha, pun unintended.
What you see in front of you is: a cupcake, fondant, sprinkles, some airbrushing and gel color. And piping gel as food glue!
Step 1: Needs
gel color - red
green toothpick or natural plus green color, OR a real cherry stem
paintbrush - for food only
foil/scratchy toothpick for texture
Step 2: Fondant Cap
Step 3: Time to Kill It!
Step 4: Airbrush + Blood
Once that was complete, I took out some red gel color and painted inside the owie area and made it all gross. :)
Then I made a cherry out of the chunk that I bit out of the icing. Rolled it in the red stuff and I have a bloody cherry! But I also needed a stem. So I snapped a toothpick and it splintered, so I took the curved piece, painted it green and shoved it into the cherry.
Then I took some piping gel, mixed in some red gel color and made some blood to drip with. I carefully placed that around the cherry bed and the torn flesh.
Step 5: Finishing Touch!
All I did was get each sprinkle, paint the back of it with some bloody piping gel and stuck them all around the cupcake in alternating colors. Then voila! Done.
I hope you enjoyed the death of this cupcake! Once I was finished, I be-headed it, like any good human would. Now I can save my Zombie Cupcake topper for later!
