Bloody Bones Halloween Cucpakes

These Bloody Bones Halloween Cupcakes are all homemade and not your box cake mix.  They are delicious and they definitely have a bloody look on them.  They actually didn’t take as long as I thought they would.  The recipe seems long, but I can assure you that it doesn’t take a lot of time to make these.  I was so proud of how mine turned out.  You can see for yourself how neat they look.  They make a great conversation piece at my work take-ins.  When I make these for our yearly Halloween Parties and Hayrides, the kids and their parents all ask about these cupcakes and everyone thinks that they are professionally done.  I have to let them know that they were not bought, but that I made them specifically for the party.  This is how easy it is to make these.
