Frankenstein Cupcakes by Victorious Cupcake
This step by step for your decorative cuppies for this years Halloween Party! They’ll be a hit!
- Sharp or craft knife
- PME Circle Cutters
- 68mm Circle Cutter
- Sugarflair Dusky Pink Blossom Dust
- Winsor Clikstix small alphabet cutter for the bolts (or you can cut the shape by hand)
- Windsor Clicktwist Silver Brush
- Rolling pin
- Palette knife
- Water brush
- 1 x batch basic cupcakes (in black cases)
- 1/2 a batch buttercream
- 180g green fondant
- 50g black fondant
- 20g white fondant
- 10g modelling paste
- Cornflour, to dust
Step 1: Bake your cupcakes and leave to cool. Using the palette knife, spread the buttercream onto the tops of the cupcakes. Be sure not to spread it too close to the paper or it will make a mess when you put the fondant on the top.
Step 2: Roll your green fondant out to 4mm thick and cut 12 x 68mm circles.
Step 3: Lay the green circles of fondant over the top of the buttercream and smooth the edges with the tips of your fingers.
Step 4: Using the same circle cutter, roll the remainder of the green fondant out and cut a shape for the chins.
Step 5: Place these at the bottom of the cupcakes to make the chin. You can add a dimple if you like.
Step 6: To cut the teeth, roll the white fondant out to 2mm thick and cut tiny squares with your sharp knife
Step 7: Using the water brush, add a dot of water where you would like the teeth to go.
Step 8: For the hair, roll the black fondant out to 2mm thick and cut a long strip, cutting triangle shapes from one side to make the fringe.
Step 9: Stick this to the top of the head using the water brush.
Step 10: For the eyes, use the 13mm and 5mm cutters out of the PME Circle Set, cutting the large circle in white first and then a small black circle for the centre. Stick the black dots to the white and then trim the tops off the eyes to make way for the eyelids. If anything seems to be sticking, give everything a light dust with cornflour
Step 11: To make the eyelids, cut 13mm green circles and cut them in half sticking them to the tops of the eyes, when you add them to the cupcakes.
Step 12: To make the bolts, add a tiny dot of black fondant to the modelling paste and knead together to make grey modelling paste. Using the alphabet cutter, cut the capital letter ‘t’ out for the bolts and leave them to dry for a few minutes. Once dry to touch, give them a little brush with the Silver Rainbow Dust food colour brush and leave them to dry again. Once dry, they will be strong enough to push into the sides of the head. Placing them on a sponge will speed up the drying process.
Step 13: Push the bolts into the sides, add a touch of blossom dust to the cheeks with a soft brush if liked – and your cupcakes are now ready to serve!
