Ding-Dong, the Witch is Dead Cupcakes

If I could sing … I would … ding-dong, the witch is dead!  (FYI … you should be happy that you can’t hear me!)

This was a first for me … cupcakes served icing side down!

On Sunday, I was looking at the Michael’s ad and saw this idea.   I believe that the witch legs were made with fondant.  I wanted to make it a little simpler.  So this is what I can up with …

Leg ideas … Sour Punch Sticks, pretzel sticks, Pixy Stix, licorice, sugar sticks, stick cookies and tiny chocolate cigarettes …

Shoe ideas … colored Jordan almonds, small jelly beans and Starburst …

Candy melts to attach the shoe to the leg …

This what you will need …

Before we start, I want to explain that my goal was to make this a very quick and easy project.  I just loved the idea of the witch under the cupcake!  Of course you could spend more time than I did and make it “perfect”.

Here are the items that I chose to use for legs and shoes … I did cut one Starburst and made 2 shoes from it …

Dip the legs in candy melts to create “socks” …

Attach the shoes …

Frost your cupcakes however you want … remember nobody will see the tops!  Assemble the legs …

Turn the cupcakes icing side down on top of the legs and place a hat nearby …

I did pull out the edible marker and add some details …

P. S.  If you like the doilies that I used, don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!
