Flying Purple People Eaters

It was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater…sure looks strange to me!

Remember that song?

If you do remember that song…I have been pondering something all these years… why are they wearing ” short shorts“? hmmm. Just asking!

If you don’t … you are truly missing out!

You can have a listen here —> (CUE SOUND) …and then proceed with this post.

Ok,  so we had to make cupcakes for Lily’s Kindergarten Halloween Party. For all you international readers, I do have international readers…they are highly esteemed members of …my family!

According to Wikipedia: Halloween is an annual holiday observed on October 31, primarily in the United StatesCanadaIreland, and theUnited Kingdom. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints’ Day, but is today largely a secular celebration. Common Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns,ghost toursbonfiresapple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, committing pranks, telling ghost stories or other frightening tales, and watching horror films.

Ok so back to my story, we had to make cupcakes for the Kindergarten party. Lily and Matt decided to do something spectacular!

Matt decided to make monster cupcakes, Lily said let’s put blood in them, then they said, let’s make worms in dirt cupcakes, then it became graveyard cupcakes with bodyparts crawling out and they figured that was too scary … and so did the class teacher ( nothing scary or violent allowed)… so somehow and they comprimised and came up with One-eyed, One-horned Flying Purple People Eater cupcakes…with blood.

It was cute and friendly and a HIT!!

I know right!!! how utterly cute!

So this is how Matt and lily made them.


You make a cupcake and add strawberry syrup to it when it’s baked HALFWAY- this is the blood. Just poke a hole and add the syrup.


Add purple icing- add food coloring to white icing.



Add the eye.

gummy eyes


The horn= candy corn


Add the Wings= Wafers Cut to shape with BAT shaped cookie cutters


The mouth = gummy worm


Enjoy your sugar rush!
