Start with a cupcake iced with green-tinted frosting.
I painted Frankie’s hair with black spray frosting. This allowed me to add more of a dark tint to his face as well.
Since the monster is supposed to be made up of excess “parts,” I used two different color candies (Skittles or M&Ms are good) for eyes with a dot of purple frosting for the pupil. I built him up a nose with additional green frosting, gave him a terrible looking mouth and used mini pretzel rods as either bolts or his own special version of the arrow through the head prank.
I know it’s early yet, but I’m thinking some of you might be planning parties. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be giving you pictorial instructions detailing how to make some cute cupcakes for Halloween.
Here are some pictures that will explain step-by-step how to make a ghost. This is super easy!
