How to make Severed Finger gore cupcakes | HALLOWEEN DIY

severed finger horror gore cupcake with blood frosting
Here is another cupcake idea you can mix with my previous bloody cakes to display at Halloween or your next horror movie. I think a whole range of body parts would be awesome as a table display.

Severed Finger Halloween Cupcakes


  • Cupcakes (Buy or cook)
  • Marzipan
  • Peach Food Colouring
  • Onion skin
  • Fake Edible Blood (Tutorial HERE)
  • Frosting
  • Red Food Colouring
This Horror inspired Halloween cupcake is an easy project to make your dessert table stand out. Below are the easy-to-follow instructions on how to make your own

  1. Mix some red frosting and apply it to the top of your cupcake, this should be messy and not neat.
  2. Slowly pour your fake blood over the top of the frosting
  3. With your Marzipan or fondant, mix through a skin colour tone making sure the colour is evenly spread through
  4. Roll the fondant to make a tube to the thickness of a finger or toe
  5. Cut an onion skin into the shape of a finger or toenail, making sure it is the size of your severed digit
  6. With some water stick down the onion skin nail to the tip of the finger/toe
  7. Using a blunt knife, make little knuckle lines, Look at your own fingers for placement
  8. Place the finger into the middle of the cupcake, pushing through the frosting so it looks like it is sticking out
Hope your family & friends enjoy this Halloween cupcake and are not afraid to eat them 💗
