Halloween Bloody Eyeball Cupcakes

 

There’s no denying that I love a gruesome dessert now and then (hello Halloween Bleeding Cake, complete with plunged knife) and whenever Halloween comes around I am so ready for a holiday-themed treat. I’m so pleased that Halloween is getting more popular in Australia as I think I love it as much as the kids! I found these gummy eyeball candies on a recent trip to Spotlight and knew they would make the perfect gory cupcake. And I couldn’t resist buying these bleeding goblets …
