I made some fun cupcakes for Halloween last year. I chose a Spider, Bat, Pumpkin, Witches hat, Ghost and Werewolf. I thought I’d share how I made them and give you a tutorial.
Here’s what you will need for the Werewolf:
Piping bag and nozzle
Red lace sweet for tongue
Smarties or M & M’s for eyes
Bake a batch of cupcakes, whichever recipe you prefer and leave them to cool.
For the werewolf – The trickiest of them all but one that are liked the most! You will need to cut a triangle from the middle of a giant marshmallow to make the shape of the snout and mouth, then line it with red lace sweet and put to one side. Cut two ear shapes from marshmallow for the ears, it doesn’t need to be perfect as it will all be covered. Now fill your piping bag with chocolate frosting, you can use butter cream or you can buy tubs of this. Attach the nozzle marked 67 depending on which ones you have! (shown in pic’s on left of others) stick the snout to the cupcake near the edge and the ears at the top the start working around then with the frosting moving in outward strokes. Lastly add the eyes and pipe the teeth with royal icing.
- Keep chocolate warm.
- Use royal icing quickly if it’s left out it will start to set.
- When you put normal icing on the cupcakes make sure you add what ever you put on top quickly as it will set then crack when you put pressure on.
- Put fondant into position then leave it as this will crack if you try to move it later.
I hope you enjoy making these and impress all your friends, if you have any questions please feel free to ask : ) Follow me for more cake tutorials
