It’s been awhile since I’ve baked anything, but when I saw the vampire cupcakes over at bakingbites.com, I knew I just had to make them! I had been very blah about Halloween up until then. I changed things up slightly with my version. I’m not too big of a fan of cherry, so I found some strawberry pie filling to use instead for the blood. And as much as I like my co-workers, who will be eating them, I didn’t want to spend the time on making my own frosting. So I got some frosting in a can and mixed it up with some whipped cream cheese. Consider my version like a strawberry cheesecake cupcake if you will. 🙂 I will be definitely making these again!!
