Glowing Fondant Ghost Topper
Add Tylose to a small ball of white fondant; wrap with saran wrap and set aside.
Knead Model Magic into a oblong and continue to shape the form size that’s needed for the ghost. Allow to dry for a few hours or overnight.
Note: the form must be firm enough to hold it’s shape.
Roll out the white fondant thinly; use the 4″ biscuit cutter; protect and cover fondant lightly with plastic wrap.
No biscuit cutter? With a pastry cutter, cut out the fondant into a circle shape.
Wrap the form with saran wrap; twist into place and trim away any overlap on the bottom of the form.
Center the circle cut out piece of fondant over the form. Gently stretch and smooth, keeping the bulk of the fondant towards the backside of the ghost.
Shape the fondant. Avoid making creases by using a paint brush for the folds. Smooth gently.
Lift the bottom of the hem to create movement. Add small cut pieces of paper towels between the fondant and saran wrap.
Allow the qhost to dry for a few hours or until the form holds its shape.
Carefully loosen the bottom edge of the ghost with a pallette knife. With fingers, grab the twisted edge of saran wrap and gently pull the fondant away from the mold.
Once the ghost is free from the mold, wad up saran wrap and place inside the hollow fondant for support; set aside to dry.
With a circle cutter the size of the LED tealight, cut out a piece of fondant; set aside to dry.
The cut out piece of fondant will sit directly onto the cupcake’s icing and will be a base for the LED tealight.
Press a tiny piece of black fondant into the mini eye shapes mold; clean the edges with a palette knife. Place into the freezer for a few minutes; unmold.
Attach the eyes with a small paintbrush and a dab of water.
If your hand is steady and true, draw the eyes with a black Bakerpan finetip food color pen.
And now you have a spooky ghost! Happy Halloween!
