With Halloween just round the corner I thought it was about time I dug up these little guys to write about them:It isn’t the best photo as I made these for Halloween a couple of years ago, but you get the idea. To create the ghosts, I used white fondant over marshmallows and drew on their expressions with writing icing. They were as simple as a clichéd white-sheet-ghost costume is to make but I really like how they look. The writing icing I used wasn’t great quality and started to run – you can see some of their eyes are dropping – and whereas usually this would have annoyed me, I thought it added to their spooky appeal.
Anyone looking for a simple Halloween cupcake design that kids can easily make – these are perfect.
Not that you should have favourites, but this guy was mine:
This year I am planning Halloween cakes on a much larger scale. Last year I made the Victorian Wedding Cake for a Halloween Party, and this year I will be baking for a similar event… I’ve said enough already, watch this space.
