CUPCAKE STYLE 1

Using a ball tool, make areas for the eye sockets, mouth and cheek bones.  Then, with a small pointed tool, create the nostrils, being careful to not pierce through the fondant.

cupcakes-4

Using black petal dust and a good dry brush, shade the insides of the eye sockets and cheeks. Remember to start with only a little dust. Sometimes less is more.

cupcakes-5

Using a small amount of edible glue, attach 2 white balls of fondant to your eye sockets – making sure that the shaded area behind will still show through.

cupcakes-7

Roll out 2 balls of white fondant for the eyes and 2 very small balls of black for the pupils.  Attach with a little glue and press the black circles flat.

Fill in the mouth with a bit of black fondant and use the ball tool to spread it to the edges of the mouth.

cupcakes-9

Using a droplet of vodka or other clear alcohol, mix in some of the black petal dust until it is a thin paint consistency.  You can then pain in the nostrils.
