Cassie from How to Eat a Cupcake asked me to help her on some black metal cupcakes for a friend. I hadn’t yet discovered The Black Oven, so I suggested something along the lines of a black forest cake. The words “black forest” make me want to run around Germany with a sword. I told her I’d make some suitable decorations because I know it can be hard to separate the crap (Cradle of Filth – NOT black metal) from the real deal (Marduk, Bathory, Immortal, etc.) if you aren’t a fan.

So here they are, free for you all, black metal cupcake toppers. If you’re like me, too stupid and lazy to paint your cupcakes with corpse paint-like frosting, these should do the trick.

blackmetaltoppers <–download them, print them on card stock and cut them out as seen here. Pay attention! I’ve seen people cut these free toppers weird.
