Zombie Brain Cupcakes for Zombie Awareness Month

I'm not sure where my interest in zombie movies came from?

I just seem to enjoy a good zombie movie or book. 

May is Zombie Awareness Month, it was chosen by the Zombie Research Society. It's a real thing - online that is! 

Since my birthday is in May I thought for my birthday I would make Zombie Brain Cupcakes. 

You know in case there was a zombie breakout on my birthday and I could distract them by giving them cupcakes disguised as brains. 

As I was really busy on the day of my birth I cheated. I used a red velvet box cake mix. I could get into a huge debate on cake box mixes, but I do think they have there places. Like when I have no time to make cupcakes on my birthday. 

However I did make the pink frosting and cherry brain juice.

They turned out pretty good I think!! I would like to have another go and practice my piping skills! 

I took my instructions on the brain frosting and cherry juice from the Lily Vanilli in A Zombie ate my Cupcake book. 

I am currently reading World War Z by Max Brooks. The book and the movie are two very different things. I was okay with the movie, but I am preferring the book. I don't know that the book could easily have been made into a movie though?

Just because I feel like sharing my two favorite zombie movies are Return of the Living Dead part 2 it's so bad it's good. My other favorite zombie movie is Zombie Land. It's scary and funny best combo ever! Before I get any sort of back lash Shaun of the Dead is one of the best zombie movies I have ever seen, but for some reason I don't feel the need to re-watch it, like I do these two. 

Do you like zombie books or movies?? If so please share your favorites below I'd love to be introduced to new zombie materials! 

notes: It was my birthday on Friday! It was a good night and the cupcakes were a hit! Today was day 18 of Blogging Everyday in May! #BEDM This post is not sponsored by Zombies or people who support Zombie Awareness or people who make zombie movies. All opinions are my own.

    1. Everyone needs to be aware of zomibes, I bet your office would love them!

  4. I bought that little book for my daughter who is Zombie mad! She's yet to make anything from it though!

    1. It's more of a decorating book, recipes are good and so are some of her ideas!

  5. I had no idea there was such a thing as zombie awareness! The cupcakes look great, would definitely provide a good distraction to a zombie :D

    Happy birthday!!
