Toxic Slime-filled Cupcakes!

Toxic Slime-filled Cupcakes!
Fudge cupcakes filled with toxic green slime!  Yummy white chocolate pudding makes the slime and fun buttercream and bones complete this mad-scientist dessert.  Print some free radioactive cupcake toppers and you have such a fun October treat!!

These cupcakes are delicious…..  I know the green slime might throw you off, but that slime is the creamiest pudding filling….oh my.  It is like a custard filled doughnut…but better.

I’m a scientist in my day job, so when thinking creepy I tend toward the blood and guts variety more than ghosts and monsters.  I knew I wanted green slime, so I looked up recipes for ideas (realistic slime….it needed to be realistic….)  and I came across an adorable blog with the idea of using plain old pudding with green food coloring– easy! Plus I loved her frosting “blob” technique, so a few parts of this recipe are borrowed from ideas on Make Bake Celebrate.

I also created some free printable “radioactive” cupcake toppers for you.  Just click here for the link, print 2 pages on card stock, cut them out and use double-sided tape to stick them back-to-back over a toothpick.    Easy-peasy and a perfect finish on these!  Aren’t they fun?!???

Lets make these cute little cupcakes together!  (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS:

  • One boxed cake mix (plus water, oil and eggs to make according to box)
  • One box (3.3 oz.) Jello Brand White Chocolate Pudding (instant)
  • Milk (to make pudding according to package)
  • Green food coloring gel
  • Purple food coloring gel
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) salted butter
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • Sprinkles/ decorations for tops of cupcakes  (I used Wilton Bones Sprinkles)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Make cupcakes according to box and divide evenly into 24 cupcake liners placed in cupcake tins.
  • Bake according to times given on boxed mix.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • Make pudding according to package and at the end add green food color gel (I used Leaf green by WIlton ) until it looks like radioactive slime!!!  Carefully spoon into a zip-top bag.
  • Core your cooled cupcakes- you can use a paring knife to just remove a core, but a cupcake corer is much faster and more uniform.  I use the Chicago Metallic Cupcake Plunger and it is cheap and small and perfect for the job!
  • Carefully clip a corner of your green slime (pudding) bag and fill each cupcake cavity about half full of “slime”.
  • Trim a little off the bottom of the “core” you removed and place it back on top of the filling- like a little cupcake cork!

  • Make frosting by combining butters, powdered sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and beating it on high until light and fluffy.
  • Divide frosting in half and mix green into one half and purple into the other half until fully combined.
  • Place each color of frosting in a bag that has been fitted with a Wilton 2A round decorating tip.  Pipe round dots of frosting in alternating colors all over each cupcake top.

  • Add sprinkles, bones, skulls, eyeballs…. any cool and creepy decorations you want!
  • Top each cupcake with a free printable topper and ENJOY!!!!

My thoughts:  I would make these again in a heartbeat.  I might make them again this weekend.  Yes, they are super fun, but the pudding is really SO good inside!  I feel like every cupcake should have pudding inside…!  I always love to watch the reactions when people bite into things for the first time– and these don’t disappoint!!!  Lots of laughter and smiles at this yummy green slime!  Enjoy!!!!!! ~r
