Hello Sugar Friends! Today we have a guest blog post by the very talented Vik the Chef. She will show us how to make these simply adorable crashed witch cupcakes:
Let’s get to it:
Bake, cool and top cupcakes with buttercream.
Cut circles from black fondant for the base of the witch hat.
Hand form a cone shape with a point for the witch hat.
Cut a thin strip and a small square from colored fondant.
Attach fondant cone to top of the fondant circle with gum glue or water. Attach strip and square around the base of the cone.
For the witch legs I used candy sticks. They come in lots of fun color stripes. Snap the candy stick in half. Hint: it’s easier to do evenly before it’s unwrapped.
With red fondant form two teardrop shapes for the witch’s shoes.
Insert a candy stick into each one.
Pinch the back of each teardrop to create a “heel” shape.
Curl the toe of the shoe up with your fingertips.
Place the witch hat on and insert the witch legs into each cupcake. Finish with Halloween sprinkles!
