buried alive cupcakes

Despite being…not a teenager, I enjoy Halloween a great deal.   I’ll admit I was excited to learn that my office has a little Halloween party, I decided my contribution would be Buried Alive cupcakes…a recipe I had seen some time ago on JustJenn Recipes.   Basically it’s chocolate cupcakes, chocolate cookie crumbles and doll arms…yes doll arms.  Creepy.

I had one of the weirdest conversations of my life over these silly little cupcakes.  I was trying to figure out where I would find doll arms in Albany and all I could think of was Michael’s.   When I called to ask if they carried doll arms on their own I could tell the sales girls was totally creeped out, but she said they had them.   When I arrived, this is what I found:

These are doll cake toppers…even CREEPIER than just doll arms!   To take the creepy to yet another level I realized I would have to rip the arms out of these dolls to make the silly cupcakes I wanted to make…I’m not even going to get into how much the 4 packs of the creepy dolls are.   Sorry Barbie wanna be, but I’ve got to dismantle you: (yes I censored the ladyparts for this post)

Once I found my arms the recipe is very easy, just chocolate cupcakes, chocolate frosting, smashed chocolate cookies (I used oreos) and of course doll arms:

Mix together, and voila!  Halloween creepy !






  1. Too cute, love them! 🙂

  2. Taya has moved on from her Barbies and dolls we have more than I can begin to imagine. Would it be worth it to you to ship them from here? I’m not pulling out doll arms for you though.

      awww you’re sweet Bets, it’s ok. I can’t imagine what it would cost to ship dolls from San Diego to NY, probably not exactly economical, but it’s the thought that counts. Can’t wait for January!!!
