    Stand you lollipops in your egg carton stand whilst you make the eyes.

  • 4.

    Colour a small amount of white RTR black.

  • 5.

    Roll small balls of white RTR icing (eyes) and gently press onto ghosts, roll and even smaller balls of black and press into position on the white eyes.

  • 6.

    Let dry.

  • 7.

    Attach axes with small balls of white RTR on the back of the ghosts, let dry.

  • 8.

    Push your finished ghosts into the frosted cupcakes and take a tube of red cake gel to make the "blood" splashes. Don't forget to put a bit on the blades of the axes. BOO!


Find toy axes at toy/$2 stores.
Want longer ghosts? Use a larger size round cutter for the RTR icing.
