    Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth. Roll out dough to approximately 5mm thick. Use Halloween-themed cutters to cut out shapes. If hanging on string, with a skewer, create a hole in your preferred spot. Place on prepared trays. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.

    Knead fondant icing on a surface dusted with icing sugar until smooth. Use a rolling pin dusted with icing sugar to roll out to about 2mm thick.

Smooth icing with fingers to create a neat finish
