Vampire Cupcakes

Ingredients

1 package (2-layer size) red velvet cake mix
1 container (16 ounces) cream cheese frosting
McCormick® Black Food Color
Black jelly beans, (for eyes)
Red gummy candies, (for fangs)

Directions:

Prepare cake mix as directed on package.

Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool cupcakes on wire rack.

Divide frosting in half. Use half of the frosting to spread a thin layer on cupcakes. Tint remaining frosting black with 1/2 teaspoon black food color. Spoon frosting into small resealable plastic bag. Snip a small corner from bag. Pipe frosting in the shape of a widow’s peak for the vampire’s head. Pipe a line of frosting for the mouth. Use jelly beans for the eyes and gummy candies, cut into triangles, for the fangs.
