When Halloween comes around, I can’t help but dream up spooky and festive ideas in the kitchen. As a mother, it’s practically my sworn duty to bring some Halloween magic into my home. I’ve created everything from Zombie Eyeball Pretzel Snacks to Bloody Shirley Temples and every year, I feel the need to create something totally new and outside of the box. Inspired by the spooky Halloween packaging on the Fanta mini cans, I created these Halloween Eyeball Cupcakes which aren’t only a perfectly decorated Halloween treat, but also offer a creepy eyeball surprise garnishing each cupcake.
I start by adding a box of white cake mix to a large bowl.
And I add in two mini cans of Fanta Orange.
I mix everything together gently and then transfer the batter to a cupcake pan I lined with fun metallic cupcake liners.
I bake the cupcakes according to the instructions on the back of the cake mix box.
Once they’re done, I pull them out of the oven and let them cool for a couple of hours.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, I get to the fun part: decorating! I pipe frosting over the top of each cupcake and add a candy eyeball.
Using some red food coloring, I drip blood all over the cupcakes. The messier the better.
These creepy cupcakes add an extra special element to our Halloween movie nights while Fanta’s irresistibly fruity flavor and bold colors bring our movie night to life. These Halloween Eyeball Cupcakes may look disgusting, but they taste amazing and are so easy to make!
