This year our decorations are a little scarce...but don't worry--I'll have a guest blogger soon--KayC from Anna Clo't & Me {who just happens to also be my mom} She has some fantastic Halloween decorating ideas to share with you :)

Here's a little of my house {scroll down for a easy Halloween cooking craft too!}


Marshmallow Fondant

4 cups mini marshmallows
2 tablespoons water
Food coloring and/or flavoring (opt)
4 cups powdered sugar + extra for rolling

1.           Measure marshmallows into a microwave safe bowl.  Add water and microwave for 1 minute.
2.           Remove from microwave and stir until completely smooth.  If any lumps remain, microwave for an additional 30-45 seconds, then stir again.
3.           Stir in any colorings or flavorings you would like.
4.           Stir in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, until you can no longer stir by hand.
5.           Turn fondant out onto a clean surface, generously dusted with powdered sugar.  Knead until smooth, adding additional powdered sugar as needed.
6.           Thinly rolled-out fondant works best.  Cut or shape into shapes to decorate cupcakes or use to cover thinly frosted layer cakes.
7.           If not using right away, store fondant a tightly closed storage bag in a cool room or refrigerator.  Knead fondant to warm up before using.

**For frosted cakes apply fondant at the last possible moment for best results.**

To make Fondant Lollipops {pictured above}, sandwich a lollipop stick between two thin circles of fondant.  Use a tiny, TINY bit of water on one side to adhere the circles together.  Top with a Halloween cut-out also adhering with a tiny bit of water.  For best results, let the fondant dry overnight so that it hardens up a bit.

Make a fun flat cupcake topper by just using the top layer {only use one circle decorated with a Halloween cut-out}. Lay it flat atop your frosted cupcake.
