Bones and worms cupcake

What’s that emerging from the dirt? Why, it’s creepy bones and ghoulish arms. All edible, of course.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; frosting tinted green; Oreos or other dark sandwich cookie; dog bone candies (check your local gumball machines); gummy candies (I cut the arms off an octopus, but you might not be so brutal so use your imagination.)

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Crumble up the outside parts of the cookie (not the creamy center; you can scrape that off and eat it). You can smash them up in a zip-close bag or in a bowl or however you please. Sprinkle around center of cupcake. Add some gummies coming out of the dirt. You could use regular gummi worms if you’d like. Add bone candies.

worm cupcake
Kids love these creepy, crawly cupcakes that are super easy to make.
What You Need: 1 cupcake; frosting (green or chocolate); 2 gummi worms; chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos).
How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Crush cookies in plastic bag and sprinkle crumbs on cupcake. Add gummi worms. (We cut one in half so it would look like the worm was crawling out of the dirt.)
