Zombie Oreos are easy to make (if you don’t need legs) if you place in the cake and use skeleton hand food picks for their arms. Zombie Oreos are pretty easy to make just break off a section of the Oreo and then use icing (black, red, orange, even white) to decorate and then place into the tombstone cake. Kids will have fun selecting and eating a zombie cookie.
