I was sooo excited when Gretchen from, Three Little Monkeys Studio shared her Zombie Cupcakes with me. I initially saw these posted on a friend's Facebook page and thought they were hilariously GENIUS - and a perfect way to kick off my 13 Days of Handmade Halloween series! So, when I found out that Gretchen was the creator of these little monsters, I just got all giggly inside!
Here's what Gretchen has to say about how she came up with this idea:
I LOVE Halloween. And zombies, vampires and everything else that makes
Halloween spooky and fun. So when I started planning a Halloween party,
zombies were the first thing that came to mind. But, since I still have
little ones at home, how to make a zombie treat that was more campy and
fun than gory?!? Enter my Zombie Cupcakes …
These guys were incredibly easy to make using a few simple ingredients and supplies.
First, find your zombie arms … which are actually doll arms. I
purchased mine from a seller on Etsy who, let’s face it, probably thinks
I was crazy for buying a dozen, mismatched doll arms. There were
sellers all over Etsy selling them, but you can also find doll arms at
your favorite hobby store. Since dragging three kids to a hobby store
sounds like visiting the seventh ring of Hell, I order online.
You can read more about how to recreate these cupcakes over at Jessica's blog, Three Little Monkeys Studio.
Since, My husband and I love a good zombie movie, I'm thinking I might have to whip some of these babies up for us on Halloween!
