Haunted Pumpkin Patch Ghost cupcakes!
Totally adorable fondant ghosts on a grassy hill!

Step 1:

You will need some cupcakes!
We made some...but even store bought would work great!

You'll also need:

coconut flakes

green food coloring

marshmallow fondant


black food coloring

paint brush or stylus

Pumpkin candy

Take some coconut flakes...drop a few drops of green

food coloring into the flakes and stir.

Soon they will become the perfect shade of green!

Step 2: Roll in the Grass!

Roll the cupcakes in the coconut flakes to cover the tops!

Just like grass!
You could crush Oreo and make a little dirt hill or graveyard.

Step 3: Ghost Time!

Now you will need some marshmallow fondant
Roll out a 1/4" thick 4 inch circle...

Take the dum-dum and drape the circle of fondant over the top of it.
Just like a ghost sheet!

Ruffle the fondant to drape nicely.

Lay on some parchment paper and let the fondant dry.

Step 4: Face Time!

After a few hours,
time to paint on the faces!

Put a small drop of black food coloring on a paper plate.

You can even practice painting the faces on the plate!

I chose a Kawaii face!
Winked, blinked, or squinted eyes and a big howling mouth!

Step 5: Commence Haunting!

Stick the ghost right into the cupcake!
Add a candy pumpkin!

Haunted Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes!

Spooky and cute--Great for a Halloween party!

You could add edible googly eyes too!

    so so cute!!

    Great use of ingredients here! Too bad fondant is all but inedible ;) I
    am wondering if you could do the same with melted and cooled white
    chocolate - you would not be able to leave them out long though. These
    are just so darn cute! You got my vote.

    Hi Kooky,
    Actually this marshmallow fondant is great. It's super sweet...but just a clay made with marshmallows and powdered sugar! You probably could use modeling chocolate though! :) Thank you!
