These Halloween cupcakes can be time-consuming but I love making them. They are very easy and so much fun to do!
This is my recipe: I bake the cupcakes and let them cool. I then melt vanilla chips and color them: green for Frankenstein, red for a devil or leave white for a ghost or skeleton head.
After frosting the cupcakes in their relevant colors, I dip marshmallows in the melted colored vanilla chips to form the heads.
For Frankenstein's hair, I dip the top of the green-colored marshmallow in chocolate shots. I use M&M's for Frankenstein's bolts and add them when the icing is still soft. Once the green is dry, I use black gel for the eyes, nose and mouth and red for the scars on the face.
For Frankenstein's bride, I use chocolate frosting for her hair and swirl it around and around with a frosting gun. I use chocolate shots for the eyebrows, green frosting for the eyes, pink for the mouth and silver dragees for earrings. To make the earrings stick, add a little frosting.
For the devil, I dip the marshmallow head in the melted red vanilla chips and, while still soft, I cut a red M&M in half and add it for the eyes. Once dry, I use black gel or chocolate frosting for the nose, mouth and beard. The horns are also chocolate frosting.
The ghost or skeleton heads are the easiest. I just dip in the melted white vanilla chips, leave to dry and then add black gel for the eyes and mouth. I promise you, if you make these, they will be a hit every time! Good luck & Happy Halloween!
I decided to try to make a cake for the 1st time in my entire life. I have been watching so many cake shows I wanted to try fondant.
I made 2 round (Duncan Hines moist and delicious red velvet) cakes of different sizes. Sorry, can't remember the exact cake sizes, but I think it was a 6 inch and 10 inch. I used pre-made cream-cheese frosting to ice the cake. I used Wilton's store bought fondant and I dyed my fondant orange and rolled it out onto the cakes.
I dyed some more fondant black and cut out small pieces of fondant and wrote out "Halloween", I attached the letters with water. I also made 2 small roses, put them on toothpicks and put them in front and behind the "Halloween" on the bottom layer. I also made a spider, a witches hat, and the other black shapes.
I used a piece of white fondant to make a ghost that I stuck in with a toothpick and I made the skeleton tombstone, I sketched out his face with the end of a toothpick. I attached the spider with a little water on the fondant and I attached the tombstone with a toothpick. I sprinkled some candy corns around the plate for extra decoration.
Hope you enjoy, this homemade Halloween fondant cake tasted great and it was fun and easy to use the fondant for the first time, much easier than I expected.
I used the Wilton Ball Cake for the mold of the face on this Homemade Mummy Cake. I used a chocolate frosting to cover the entire ball. I then used strips of white fondant and placed them in different areas and directions. The eyes were made using yellow and black fondant.
