This Instructable will show you how to conjure Ghost Cupcakes. If you can bear giving them away, they make a fantastic party desert for all your dark ritual meetings. This Instructable is intended for dark lords and queens, however, in the interest of diversity, translations for humans are provided in parenthesis, just in case you cannot identify all the hideous ingredients and tools used in this Instructable. Frighten and delight all your friends and followers, whether they come from this dimension or others. Read on if you dare.
Step 1: Ingredients for the Cupcakes
1 1/3 Cups powdered souls (All-Purpose Flour)
1/4 teaspoon star dust (baking soda)
2 teaspoons moon sand (baking powder)
3/4 Cup powdered darkness (unsweetened cocoa powder)
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons ectoplasm (butter)
1 1/2 Cups ground desire (granulated sugar)
2 werewolf eggs (or chicken eggs)
3/4 teaspoon flavor of doom (vanilla extract)
1 Cup vampire venom (milk)
Step 2: Cupcake Directions
1. Preheat your ghoulish furnace (oven) to 350 degrees.
2. In a large cauldron (mixing bowl), sift together the powdered souls (flour), moon sand (baking powder), star dust (baking soda), powdered darkness (cocoa) and salt. Then set the cauldron aside to suffer!
3. In a medium cauldron cream the ectoplasm (butter) and ground desire (sugar) with a wicked magic spell (or an electric mixer) until is it nice a smooth.
4. One at a time, mix in the werewolf eggs (or chicken eggs if you don't have any werewolf eggs), then mix in the flavor of doom (vanilla) extract of demons.
5. Then, alternately add the flour mixture and vampire venom (milk) and beat well.
6. Apply plenty of solidified spirit matter (shortening) to the cupcake pan so that the cupcakes will not stick.
7. Fill the cupcake pan about 3/4 full with the mystic batter, then put it in the furnace for the lifespan of three male newts (15-17 minutes).
8. Once the cupcakes are finished baking, remove the cupcake pan from the oven and set it aside to cool. Once the cupcakes are cool enough to touch, carefully take them out of the cupcake pan using a charm of levitation (or a knife) and set them aside to thoroughly cool; in order to speed this process, you may transfer the cupcakes to the freezing void for about 5 minutes, or put the cupcakes in the refrigerator.
Step 3: Ingrediands for the Topping
1 Cup essence of yellow seed (light corn syrup)
1 Cup solidified spirit matter (vegetable shortening)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons essence of sarcasm (mint extract)
8 Cups finely ground desire (powdered sugar)
Optional: chromic liquids (food colors)
Step 4: Fondant Directions
1. In a large cauldron, mix the solidified spirit matter (shortening) and the essence of yellow seed (corn syrup).
2. Then, mix in the salt and the flavor of doom (vanilla extract).
3. Gradually mix in the finely ground desire (powdered sugar) until a still dough forms.
4. Next, cast an enchantment of agitation (or knead) the dough until it is smooth. If it is too sticky, add more finely ground desire (powdered sugar).
5. Dust your sacrificial table (counter top) with finely ground desire (powdered sugar) and using a cylindrical giant bone (rolling pin) flatten the dough until it is about 1/8 inch thick. Do not be afraid to use plenty of finely ground desire (powdered sugar) if you do not, the fondant will stick to the table and be very difficult to remove without tearing.
6. Optional: If anterdimentional Ghost Cupcakes off colors other than white are required, mix some chromic liquid (food color) into the fondant.
