There are lots of cute ghost cupcake ideas out there, and this is my take on the fondant ghost. To make this little guy just lay a circle of fondant over a Dum-dum lollipop and then poke the lollipop into the cupcake. I love the way the lollipop stick makes the ghost look like he really is hovering over the cupcake, and the hidden lollipop is a fun treat. Check out the super-simple photo tutorial.
For a dozen cupcakes you'll need:
12 cupcakes, baked from your favorite recipe and cooled
12 Dum-dum lollipops
White fondant, I used Wilton brand
Black edible marker, I used Wilton
6. Dot on eyes using the edible marker.
7. Now lay the fondant over the lollipop and bend and fold it. The creases and folds enhance the ghostly look.
