black food coloring
1 tubvanilla frosting
13.4 oz boxinstant vanilla pudding mix
neon green food coloring
Make the cake batter according to package directions. Stir in 5-10 drops of black food coloring to darken the cake even more. Pour into cupcake pans lined with paper liners and bake.
While the cupcakes cool completely, add color to the frosting until you've reached your desired shade of black. Set aside for a moment.
In a bowl, add the milk to the vanilla pudding mix as directed. Stir in the green food coloring. Refrigerate for 5 minutes to set.
Once the cupcakes are cool, cut a small cone out of each one (see more on how to do that here) and spoon in some pudding "slime." Cover back up with the top off the cupcake cone.
Frost all the cupcakes with black frosting.
Over a tray to catch spills (I used my cooling rack over a baking sheet, the same way I would for pouring ganache) pipe or spoon the slime pudding over the top of each cupcake. Feel free to get creative here! Pipe into lines to create tentacles, spoon near the edges to let it ooze down the sides, or pile it up in the center.
Add candy eyeballs, pipe on faces with black decorating gel, or cut marshmallows to make teeth!
Keep refrigerated until time to serve!
