I can't stop baking. Seriously, my fall baking obsession may just be pathological this year. I love baking in the autumn and have so much fun with Halloween inspired baked goods so how could I possibly pass up the opportunity to try out some Sweet Creations by Good Cook Halloween products. Earlier this week I showed you how my daughter and I made a haunted gingerbread house using the Haunted House Cookie Cutter Set and now I am pleased to show you how to make these super adorable ghost cupcakes! 


Ghost cupcakes

How to make ghost cupcakes:
Materials/Ingredients:
Your favorite cupcake recipe (or boxed mix),baked
Your favorite frosting recipe (or canned frosting), prepared
Your favorite fondant recipe (or premade fondant), prepared
Suckers (I used Blow Pops)
Decorating bag and tip 21 (optional) and 2
Block of Styrofoam
Vegetable shortening
Rolling pin

Instructions:
Frost the cupcakes using tip 21 or using a spatula. 

Remove wrappers from suckers and place in Styrofoam. Prepare a work surface by lightly greasing with vegetable shortening. Roll out fondant until fairly thin and then cut into a circle. To achieve a perfect circle, I used a cottage cheese lid. Peel the fondant up from the surface and drape over the sucker. It will have natural folds so you will likely need to do few, if any, manipulations once it is draped.

Push sucker stick into the center of the frosted cupcakes. Add two small dots using colored frosting and tip 2. 

See how easy it is! I received the super adorable Haunted Cupcake Display from Good Cook and thought that these cupcakes, along with pumpkin decorated and candy corn decorated ones, looked so adorable on the stand.  The stand was easy to assemble and is made from corrugated cardboard. There are three tiers and the stand can hold up to 24 cupcakes.  Because there is a decorative border around the stand, it is a little difficult to get the cupcakes in them without ruining the frosting on the cupcake, so I put the stand together 1 tier at a time and placed the cupcakes in each tier before adding another. For being cardboard, it is a fairly steady stand thought I would recommend placing it on a large plate or board of some kind if you need to move the stand once the cupcakes are on it. The stand can be disassembled easily so can use it year after year!
