"Bite Me" Cupcakes
These cupcakes were for Halloween at the office, although I didn't bring them to the office until the following Monday. They were basic white cupcakes with fluffy pale white frosting. Two holes were made in the baked cupcakes by using the end of a wooden spoon, although a straw would probably have worked, as well. The cupcakes were frosted after the holes were made. I inserted toothpicks into the holes so that I would remember where they were, then I used the toothpicks to open the holes back up. Raspberry Dessert Gel (from the refrigerated section at the grocery store) was used to fill the holes, allowing the gel to ooze out the top for a gorey "vampire bite" look to each cupcake. The raspberry filling was seedless and added a good flavor to the vanilla cupcakes.
