Vampire Fang Cupcakes Recipe

Vampire Fang Cupcakes

Vampires are the epitome of Halloween! I figured: how can we celebrate appropriately with some dessert? This is how I came up with my Vampire Fang Cupcakes.

I was thinking long and hard on how to put the “blood splatters” on the vampire fangs. Then I realized, “I have red gel food coloring!” If you’re careful enough, then the random splotches of food coloring looks like blood on your vampire fondant fangs. Absolutely perfect!

I wonder how many Halloween parties my daughter will be going to this year? It’s her favorite celebration and she’ll be going all out! I bet she would love these cupcakes!

Ingredients

Vampire Fang Cupcakes

12 chocolate cupcakes, cooled down and ready for decorating

4 oz. white fondant

1 drop red gel food coloring

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 cups icing sugar

3-4 tbsp milk

Purple gel food coloring

Yields: 12 decorated cupcakes

Directions

Vampire Fang Cupcakes

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Roll out 24 pieces of white fondant into ½ inch spheres. Place gently on a lined baking sheet.

Vampire Fang Cupcakes

Shape each fondant sphere into ovals and flatten out. Pinch one and curve in so that they resemble vampire fangs. Place back on your lined baking sheet.

Place one drop of red gel food coloring on a plate. Wet a paint brush and dab on rather “blood stains” on each fang.

In a stand mixer, beat butter, sugar, and milk on medium speed. Gradually increase the speed to high. Once the ingredients start combining, add 2 small drops of purple gel food coloring. Mix until buttercream forms.

Frost each cupcake with an offset spatula. Place two fangs on each cupcake and Happy Halloween!
