Find yourself a quiet few minutes and cut all of the red sour candy tape into triangles, cut the licorice into even pieces, and crush the chocolate cookies. Place everything into little bowls before you start so your ingredients are organized. Then, have at it. If you’d like your vampire hair to look as precise as that in the photo, follow these steps. Cut a piece of wax paper into a heart shape and place the top half of the heart an inch below the upper edge of the cupcake. Sprinkle the crushed cookies on the exposed frosting above the top of the heart and then remove the wax paper for a clean edge.
