How to make fondant ghosts

I have received a few requests for instructions on how to make the fondant ghosts that are on the Halloween cupcakes. Step-by-step instructions are below. Enjoy!

1. You will need 2 mini peanut butter cups and 1 Whopper candy.

2. Put a small amout of frosting on each peanut butter cup (peanut butter cups should be upside down). If you don't have frosting, you can use very small dots of fondant that have been softened with water. You could even use peanut butter.

3. Stack the peanut butter cups and the Whopper.

4. Roll the fondant into a small ball. I only made 1 ghost, so the ball was pretty small. If you are making multiple ghosts you may want to roll out a larger portion and cut as many ghosts at one time as you can. I used marshmallow fondant.

5. Roll the fondant pretty thin, about 1/8" thickness.

5. Cut a circle that is just over 4" in diameter. A round plastic container was the perfect size.

6. Drape the fondant circle over the stacked candy.

7. I used a #4 frosting tip to cut out the eyes and mouth. You can also use dots of frosting or cut the eyes and mouth out with a toothpick.

8. Place on top of a frosted cupcake or cake!
