Step 1:

Tools and ingredients:

-White, yellow and red fondant

-Red, blue and yellow food coloring

-Black Fondant (optional)

-Toothpicks

-Fine tipped paintbrush

-Sharp knife

-Strawberry or cherry jam

Mix a small amount of red & yellow fondant and gradually add to white fondant until you get a pale flesh colour.

Step 2: Lend Me Your Hand?

Shape a large ball of fondant into an oval. Slightly flatten it in order to make the palm. You will need to use a toothpick or a sharp tool to make the natural indentation of the palm.

Make a few cylinders the size of a finger. Round the ends of each cylinders and use a toothpick to make knuckles indentations. Attach fingers to the palm.

Next, create a light purple/pink color with food coloring and apply it to every creases of the hand. Dip your fine paintbrush into blue food coloring, and draw tiny crooked lines where the wrist is supposed to be. Smear the edges of the veins with your fingertips.

You can use black fondant to make some nasty fingernails !

Step 3:

I made a Chocolate fondant & Vanilla sponge cake to form the base of the arm. (You can use boxed cake mix to help save time!)

Use a very sharp knife to carve your cake and cover it with fondant.

Create a light purple/blueish color with food coloring and draw fine crooked lines near the edges of your cake. Add a little extra spookiness by lightly dabbing on small hint of purplish food coloring all around the edges of your delicious severed arm 'cake'.

Go nuts! Have fun making creepy blood splatter with cherry/strawberry jam.

Step 4: Have Fun!

Serve on a silver platter to your friends~

As their eyes widden in horror...

Happy halloween!

    Hello :) it depends where you live, in Belgium you can find fondant & food coloring at most grocery stores. Marshmallow fondant is easy to make and fun to use, here's a good recipe : http://www.wilton.com/rolled-marshmallow-fondant/WLRECIP-242.html
