The cute little fondant tennis shoes give an extra added bit of flair tho the ghost.

The cupcake itself can be any flavor you like. Of course am a huge fan of chocolate cupcakes so I that was my flavor of choice for the ghost cupcakes.

The top of the cupcake base is created by a thin layer of buttercream icing and then topped off with some orangeĀ  colored rolled fondant. These are sure to make your Halloween party a real thriller for everyone! Totally delicious.

Instructions and Video on How to Make The Ghosts and Tennis Shoes With Rolled Fondant:

Start out by placing a candy corn pumpkin head on top of a large tootsie roll. You will want to press the pumpkin down a bit to make the two candies stick together. Make sure you keep them upright. You don’t want them learning.

Roll out a small circle of white rolled fondant approximately 3 inches in circumference. Use just a bit of shortening to grease down your surface.

Using a # 12 cake decorating tip, cut out the ghost eyes and mouth. You will make the cut outs just below the center of the rolled out fondant as shown:

Gently lift the rolled fondant ghost sheet from your work surface and drape it over the candy body mold.

Position the eyes over the orange pumpkin head and the mouth over the tootsie roll as shown here. Work the edges of the fondant ghost sheet so you get a flowing look to it.
