The Cupcake Apocalypse has arrived!

Check out this horror themed collaboration created by Joyce Marcellus of Toxic Sweets Shop and Kassy Jiminez of Cakes & Crafts by Kass.

The plants were infected with Z blood and started to turn Zombie too. Below is a tutorial by Latoya showing how she made these creepy treats.


Laurie Collins of Whisk Confections

Theme: Creature from the Black Lagoon This piece is a throw-back to old scary movies. Creature from the Black Lagoon was originally released February 12, and is considered one of the top 100 horror classics.  The stump and head of the piece are cake, and the arms are rice krispy treats. We used Caljava Fondx mixed with CMC to cover the piece and painted it with Rainbow Dust Gel Colors mixed with EverClear. The lagoon pool is created out of Simi Isomalt that was colored with Rainbow Dust Gel Colors. Below is a video tutorial by Laurie showing how to create a chocolate cupcake shell.

Sarah Green of Sinfully Sweet Cakes & Treats

Theme: House of 1000 Corpses This giant cupcake is Sarah’s very first bust cake and cake collaboration. It is her version of Captain Spaulding from the movie House of 1000 Corpses. Captain Spaulding’s face and clothing was created using Wilton fondant and chocolate. Below is a video tutorial from Sarah showing how she created Captain Spaulding.

Raisa Escobar of RiceCake’s Bakery

Theme: Killer Klowns From Outerspace This giant cupcake is a brief glimpse into what brings Shorty the Klown much joy. Whipped cream pies made from acid that dissolve anything it is thrown at. Cotton Candy Cocoons that melt humans into a nice drinkable liquid. And one of his favorite pals, a hand shadow puppet T-Rex that chows down on any living being. Below is a video tutorial in which Raisa shows how she created the Circus tent.
