Modelling Monstrosities On Your Zombie Cupcakes

Mix the fondant icing for modelling and make up some brains, tombstones, eyes and hands, use a toothpick to add detail where required
Mix the glace icing. We added a dash of black food colouring for a suitable pallid flesh tone
Apply the glace icing to the cupcakes – press in the modelled features as it cures
For the tombstone or hand cake, dip the semi-cured glace icing into the crushed Oreos, use a dessert stick to hold the feature in place
Put a drop of each food colouring colour on a plate and go to town on decorating the cakes. Less is more, and a drop of fresh clean water with help the colours blend and run into the cracks on the fondant icing.
