Halloween cupcakes

Friday, 30 October 2015

Hello Ladies,

Today I want to show you some super spooky/cute cupcakes that are sure to brighten up your "All Hallow's Eve".

With Halloween approaching fast, you don't have to worry about too much time or effort.

You'll see great results from only a little bit of work! These are also 'no-bake' - so no hassle! hehe. 

Here's what you'll need:

  • 'Ready to Roll' Icing/Fondant in a few colors. 
  • I chose White, Black, Green and Orange.

  • Plain Cupcakes or Mini Muffins
  • Some Buttercream or Nutella
  • A glass or cup slightly larger than your muffins
  • A knife
  • Some water or edible glue
  • A rolling pin
  • Some sculpting tools (or a toothpick / flattened straw if you're in a pinch)
  • Some grease-proof paper for your rolling surface
  • 20 minutes!

  • I'll show you how to to make are a super cute, friendly Frankenstein, but I'll also add some creative examples below ;)

    The first step is to cover you cupcakes/muffins with a thin layer of buttercream/nutella(Yummy!). 
    This helps the icing fondant adhere to the cupcake and adds an extra shock of flavour!

    The next step is to roll out the 'base' color for your figure (green) and cut a circle with the glass you chose earlier. Make sure the circle you roll is not too thin as it starts to break, but not so thick that eating it will be a chore!

    Turn your cupcake upside-down and press gently into the icing circle, taking care not to leak your filling all over the outside!
    Ladies - Remember to be gentle :P I learned the hard way that squished filling ruins clothing!

    You'll want to start to shape the 'face' of Frankenstein by gently applying pressure until you have a 'squarish' shape.

    Next we'll cut a semi-circle for his hair. Using the same glass you used for his face, cut a semi-circle out of black fondant. Cut an additional piece off of the flat-side to make the overall shape shorter, than cut 2 or 3 triangles off so it looks like he has a funky hair-do.

    Using a little bit of water or edible glue on the face, then gently press the hair shape down on top.

    You can using a sculpting tool to carve out a cheeky grin and a mean scar here, if you haven't already done so.

    Now, lets make his cute little eyes!

    We'll roll out two white balls of icing to make the white of his eyes. Gently flatten the balls before dabbing the back with water/edible glue and pressing onto the face.

    Next to the same with smaller black balls for this pupils.

    Roll a small black icing 'sausage' and cut in half to form his eyebrows.


    You can make his ears by rolling 2 green balls of fondant, pinching at one side and applying to the sides of the face with water/edible glue.

    If you mix 2 small pieces of white and black icing together, you'll get a grey. Use this grey to make 2 tiny bolts to sit under his ears, around where his neck should be.

    And that's it! You'll find that once you get the hang of one, it's very easy to produce them 'en-masse'.

    Here are some additional examples I've made:

    Good luck, and Happy Halloween!
