I made these cupcakes a few weeks ago for the season premiere of the TV show Dexter. It's an awesome show on Showtime! For those of you who don't know, it is about a serial killer you can't help but like.


I made red velvet cupcakes (of course) to look like red flesh. Then I tinted plain butter cream frosting to look like skin. The knives are made out of melted and colored white chocolate I just piped onto some parchment paper in a knife-like shape and stuck in the fridge to harden. Once they were nice and solid I stabbed them into the fleshcakes and added a little of that horrible food decorators gel stuff to look like blood. Everyone really loved them and I might have to make them again for Halloween.

Hope you like! Cheesy

Those. Are. *AWESOME*!!!

I love it all! The red velvet-ness (mmm), the peanut butter frosting (double mmm), and the blood looks fantastic, not to mention the fantastic knives! You did a phenomenal job, and you've got lucky friends! This rocks (although now I'm seriously craving cupcakes...and blood... I mean, erhm...  Wink )

it is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves, monotonous and un-renewed, it is shyness before all else.

I put the melted chocolate in a pastry bag and just pipe a knife outline. Then fill it in with  more chocolate. Then to the same with the handles making sure to overlap a little to it sticks together. It was really easy. Smiley
