witch cauldron cupcakes

Create these whimsy and spooky cupcakes for your next Halloween bash!

Step 1

Transfer the ready-to-use buttercream to a bowl and give it a good stir until smooth. Tint the icing with a few drops of bright green gel until you achieve a vibrant bright green shade.

Step 2

Put bright green buttercream into a piping bag and cut the tip. Pipe a ring of buttercream around the outer edge of the cupcake.

Step 3

Take out a small portion of black fondant. Knead it until smooth and pliable and form it into a ball. Form the ball into a log that is long enough to wrap around the edge of the cupcake.

Step 4

Wrap the log around the sides of the bright green buttercream ring.

Step 5

Pipe small dollops of bright green buttercream on top of the cupcake with some going over the edge of the black fondant ring to create a bubbling effect.

Step 6

Drizzle green glitter glaze on top of the buttercream.

Step 7

Take out a small portion of bright green fondant. Knead it until smooth and pliable and then form a bunch of small balls. Place the small balls of bright green fondant on top of the cupcake to look like bubbles.

Step 8

Take out a small portion of black fondant. Knead it until smooth and pliable and form it into a ball. Form the ball into a skinny log and allow to set for about an hour before sticking it into the top of the cupcake.
