Roll out grey sugarpaste to 3-4mm thick. Using the stone wall impression mat press into the paste to leave the impression. To prevent sticking, lightly dust the impression mat with cornflour first.

Step 2:

Use a knife to cut the grey paste into sections that are easier to handle. Following the lines of the stones, trim a random pattern as shown. Turn each piece over and brush the back lightly with edible glue or water.

Place the stone wall effect  paste around the base of the cake, leaving a space at the front for the pathway. To make the pathway, use the cobble stone impression mat and cut to shape. Secure to the cake drum with edible glue.

Step 7:

Position the tombstones on the cake and insert a wooden cocktail stick into the cake behind each to allow them to stand up. Pipe a small amount of purple royal icing onto the bottom of each tombstone and secure in place. Add the stars, bats, pumpkins and ghosts using small amount of the royal icing. Make a smooth paint using black food paste and a little clear alcohol and paint on the gate with a fine paintbrush. Finish the cake drum with black ribbon.
