Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 4. Line 2 x 12-hole muffin trays with paper cupcake cases.

In a mixing bowl, stir the cake mix, oil, water and eggs gently together, then whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy. Divide the mixture evenly between the cupcake cases. Bake both trays together in the oven for 18-22 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely; about 30 minutes.

Reserve 150g of the icing and divide the rest equally between 3 bowls. Use the food colouring pastes or gels to colour each bowl of icing to the desired shade.

Use each colour of icing to top 8 cupcakes. Spoon the reserved 150g icing into a disposable piping bag and snip off the end. Pipe the icing over each cupcake in zig-zag lines to resemble bandages. Attach 2 candy eyeballs to each cupcake. Serve immediately or keep in a cool place for up to 2 days.

Betty's Tips

You can vary the colours of the icing under the bandages or use Betty Crocker™ Tempting Chocolate Icing instead.

If you don’t have any candy eyeballs, then simply pipe on blobs of the icing and dot with black writing icing.
