What is Venom About?
Synopsis: Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancée. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers – transforming him into Venom. Will these powers be enough for this new lethal protector to defeat great evil forces, especially against the far stronger and more weaponized symbiote rival, Riot?
Watch the trailer below if you haven’t yet seen the movie. If you have, feel free enjoy it anyway.

Make Venom Movie Inspired Candy Filled Cupcakes
Because the folks at Sony Pictures packed in so much bonus content, I decided to give you a little bonus content of my own. Y’all know I never need much of an excuse to play with my food!
My boys are both under 10 so we’re holding off on sharing the Venom movie with them. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had, which is where my idea for these candy filled cupcakes was born.
Candy filled cupcakes are surprisingly easy to make and I couldn’t think of a better treat to go along with this movie.
Venom’s iconic red tongue is unmistakable, so I filled my cupcakes with red chocolate candy and frosted the tops with black icing. Biting into the cupcake gives a fun surprise and I like to think it’s a little tribute to this iconic comic book character.
To fill your cupcakes, use a small circular cookie cutter to remove the center of the cupcake. You’ll need to keep the piece you remove to add back to the top once the candies are in, so set it aside while you add the candy.
Then, slice off the excess cake so the circle is level once you put it back on.
Once this is done, you’re ready to frost! Making black icing from scratch is pretty tricky so I recommend buying black icing instead. You don’t want it to end up with a purple Venom! Save that color for Thanos.
I tried a few different techniques for Venom’s eyes and decided that the inside of a mini chocolate sandwich cookie sliced in half was perfect! This was the easiest way to have a uniform look for all the cupcakes.
I opened the cookie and carefully removed the creme filling by sliding a butter knife underneath, keeping the circle intact. Then I sliced it in half and boom, eyes!
That’s it! You’re ready for a delicious Venom Movie party.
