A few years ago, I made Halloween cupcakes using fondant. They were super cute, and the kids had a blast stamping the designs. I had never used fondant before and it was certainly different. While we weren't a huge fan of the taste (kind of like an airhead candy) we were fans of using it. I decided to share this post because it's something the kids can do, and you can be as creative as you like with the decorating.
These cupcakes are a little time consuming, but easy. You will need Halloween Stamps (mine are from the $1 Spot at Target), food coloring, a small paint brush and Fondant if you wish to embark on this cupcake making adventure.
Bake your cupcakes and let them cool. If you want a try a new recipe - this is my go-to.
After your cupcakes have been baked and are heavily frosted (as I completely abhor a lightly frosted anything) roll out the fondant. I used a 1/4 measuring cup to cut the fondant into circles that would fit nicely on my over-frosted cupcakes.
With a small paint brush, I painted my Halloween Stamp with food coloring. This is a great job for the kids.
After we stamped the fondant, I decided to get a little funky and paint around the stamp. I carefully placed my masterpiece on top of one of the cupcakes. I love these cupcakes because they are different - and if you don't like the fondant you can peel it off and still enjoy the cupcake!
