Zombie icing:

  1. In a bowl, beat together the icing sugar and butter until thoroughly combined.
  2. Stir in enough food colouring to make it pink and mix vigorously until evenly combined.
  3. Spread a smooth layer of pink icing over each cupcake in a domed shape. With the tip of a knife, make a line down the centre of each cupcake. Place the iced cupcakes in the freezer until needed.
  4. Pipe a winding pattern of icing on each side of the centre line to create the brain wrinkles.
  5. In a shallow bowl, stir together the golden syrup, cocoa powder and a few drops of red food colouring.
  6. Remove the cupcakes from the freezer and drizzle the tops in the syrupy “blood,” allowing any excess to drip off.
