It is no secret that I am totally into The Walking Dead.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you are probably aware of this.
So it should come as no surprise that I was compelled to make a little something for the season finale. (And what a finale it was! I have so many questions!)
I considered waiting until October to share this since it's unlikely anyone will be throwing parties which require tombstone cupcakes before then, but hey, you know know. I won't judge.
For the tombstones, I frosted Milano cookies with gray frosting. My store didn't have black food coloring, and I was doubtful that red, yellow, blue, and green could make gray. But it did! I tried out a few recommended mixes that I found on the interwebs, and this was the winning combo for me:
I frosted the top 2/3 of each cookie, front and back, before I stuck it back into the cupcake. I used a knife to gently pushed down on the top of the cookie without messing up the frosting.
I think they turned out pretty cute! I'll be working on applying smooth frosting while I wait for season 5 to begin...
