Yesterday, I made a Ninja Turtles cake (post to come next time). Turns out, I had some extra cake, and I preserved it nicely. I was able to make a few mini cakes out of it, and I decided to make them a little spooky.
I used a little Casper cookie cutter that someone picked up for me at a yard sale. 50 cents - score! I just used it like I would if I were making cookies, except the cake was a little too thick. I had to work a little harder to get it all the way through.
I originally wanted to slice it to make it two layers, then just ice the middle, but I decided against that. So, I used white icing to coat the top. I'm not a huge icing fan, so this was perfect for me. I gave the icing some waves to make it look like the ghost was flowy.
I added some black eyes and an "O" shaped mouth to give it a ghost effect. This way, they are spooky and cute at the same time. I wasn't sure how ghostly they would look, because, to be honest, I wasn't sure if I really believed the cookie cutter was a ghost. I'm convinced now.
Mini cakes are the perfect size for a snack, and hey, you can't have Halloween with a few ghosts. Am I right?
Happy Halloween yall!
