A Step-by-Step Guide

Turn your Halloween party into the ultimate spookfest with these creepy candy eyeballs. They make great cupcake toppers!

Step 1

Start with three balls of fondant: white, blue (or any other color you want to use for the eyes) and black.

Step 2

Roll out all three balls to an even thickness. Dust the fondant with cornstarch if you need to prevent sticking.

Step 3

Stamp out a large circle from the white, a medium circle from the blue and a small circle from the black.

Step 4

Wrap a doughnut hole in the white fondant circle, and pinch the back to seal.

Step 5

Dip your fingers in water and attach the blue circle to the doughnut.

Step 6

Attach the black circle next.

Step 7

Pinch off a tiny dot of white fondant and add it to the black circle. Your first eyeball is now complete.

Step 8

Repeat steps 1 through 7 to make a series of eyeballs in a variety of colors.

Step 9

Decorate each cupcake with a spooky edible eyeball.
