I don’t really ‘celebrate’ Halloween, but this year, I was invited to a friends Halloween party and not wanting to turn up empty handed, I decided to make some cupcakes.
I made two designs – monsters and eyeballs. The monster design is from the Planet Cakes (first) book.
I thought I’d give them all a bit of personality by changing their eyes a little.
I came across some eyeball lollies at Aldi and thought they’d make an easy design for the second batch of cupcakes. Although I felt I should’ve put a health warning on the lollies on the eyeball cupcakes as it was just a gelatinous ball of ewwe, it almost felt like rubber.
At first I was going to leave them with the plain white fondant, but I thought it needed a little something else, so I added a drop of red food colouring and let it drip off the eye ball and run off the fondant.
And it was a big hit with the kids, though next time if I know there’s going to be toddlers eating it, I won’t use the black fondant again, lots of sticky black hands and faces!
