I have seen several cute ghosts in the galleries that look like they are floating on top of the cupcake but nobody describes how they do that. Any thoughts/wiling to share? I think they are so cute!
This was in Taste of Home recently and it basically says that all you need to do is stack two small peanut butter cups and add a malted milk ball for the head and then drape the white fondant over it and voila! A ghost! You can draw the face on before or after : ) I was going to try this for a "Girly Halloween" party I'm having next week with some friends! Good luck!
I've done it with a fondant/gp ball, into which I put a skewer/toothpick/lollipop stick/stir stick-- whatever you have. Then I draped the fondant/gp over it and pressed it in to form the shape of the head and folds in the drape. Then paint on face and let dry. If you want it to appear to be flying-you can lift the bottom of the drape and form it and let it dry with plastic wrap in it to hold the position. HTH
I would think you could use a tootsie pop stuck into the cupcake.
Thanks for all the quick responses. I can't wait to try these!
These look so cute!!! I wanted to make something like this for my kids school for Halloween.
These are cute! Thanks for the info. I am going to try these for my daughters' halloween party.
Totally cute! Thanks for the ideas, I have to make some halloween cupcakes and might go this direction!
