I keep seeing these vampire bite cupcakes around the internets. They're super easy to make - you can get away with canned frosting and boxed cake mix!

I made my own blood sauce from maraschino cherries, but feel free to use canned jam or any sweet red sauce. :D

Step 1: ingredients:

  • box of cake mix of choice (this is my favorite!)
  • white frosting
  • 1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 8 maraschino cherries
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cornstarch
As far as hardware - you'll want a wooden skewer and some cupcake liners.


delicious (Y)
one question are the cupcakes real sugary? I am one of those people just don't like icing very sweet.
I'd recommend making your own frosting, honestly. Anything out of a can tastes really sweet and slightly artificial. ;) <br /> <br />Cream cheese frosting is probably your best bet!
ok thanks for the info
