Halloween Witch's Broom Cupcake with Apple Blueberry Cupcakes
This Witch's Boom Cupcake Topper are fun and easy to make that all kids or grown up would love to have on their cupcake or cake. Barely take five minutes to create with just a small piece of fondant no special equipment needed.
How cute are these? You can use them on cakes too. So it's basically a cake or a cupcake topper. The only difference of course is you make the ones for the cake a tad bigger than the cupcake. I have shown you both in the video below.
Here is the close of the Brooms. The larger one can be made into a Cake topper while the smaller one would be a Cupcake toppers. I showed you both in the video just so you can see it better on the larger one.
I made these for a birthday girl recently. She loves Halloween so her request was to make Halloween cupcakes with her friends. So of course I chose to make the ones that kids would love the most... Witch's Hat, Broom, Boots, Cauldron, Pumpkins, Skull and Bones, ghost. The kids really loved it.
The dad when one step ahead and created a spooky atmosphere. Unfortunately she didn't want me to share any of the party pictures on my blog. I totally appreciate that. I have kids too!
