Mini Ghost Cupcake Toppers


  • 1/2 recipe of Vanilla Cake
  • 3- 4 Strawberries, Chopped
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Buttercream Frosting
  • Pre-Made Fondant
  • 3 inch Circle Cookie or Biscuit Cutter
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Black Food Coloring
  • toothpicks


  1. Make your Vanilla Cupcake Batter. Add chopped strawberries to HALF the batter. If you want them all to be strawberry, add more chopped strawberries. Bake in Mini-Cupcake pan.
  2. Allow to cool and then frost cupcakes. I used a Wilton 1M Star tip. Stack up two Mini-Marshmallows using frosting as glue and add it to the cupcake. Allow the frosting to dry as you make your ghosts.
  3. Massage the pre-made fondant with your hands coated in Crisco. Roll out and cut 3 inch circles.
  4. Carefully add the circles over the marshmallows and position the fondant to make the folds.
  5. Using a toothpick, add bloody details and faces.
  6. Serve to your Halloween Ghouls!
