Zombie Cupcakes

Third Grade Holidays Activities: Zombie Cupcakes

What You Need:

  • Cupcake mix
  • Cupcake pan
  • Paper cupcake holders
  • White icing
  • Pastry bag
  • Round icing tip
  • Gummy worms
  • Red and green food coloring


What You Do:

  1. Assist your child in baking your favorite cupcake recipe and allow the cupcakes to cool.
  2. In a bowl, have your child mix icing, six drops of green food coloring and three drops of red food coloring to get the perfect colour for “gray matter.” Depending on the icing, more drops may be needed to get the best colour.
  3. Help your child put the round tip into a pastry bag, and fill the bag with the gray icing.
  4. Guide your child to squeeze the icing in squiggles on top of the cupcake, working from front to back, side to side. Note: It helps if you look at an actual picture of a brain to see how the pattern goes.
  5. Have your child jab a gummy worm into the cupcake for the perfect wormy brain!
