If you're making these, be sure and cut the fondant in a diameter that completely covers the cupcake top. My cookie cutter was a little small, which would've been ok if I had covered the cupcakes completely beforehand, but I didn't. I only frosted the centers, enough to plop a gumdrop on the top. So, either frost completely or allow about a 4- inch diameter of fondant. It doesn't look too bad, though, they just have random green goo oozing from their bodies in different spots.

With all of this, the most difficult part was cutting out the eyes! I ended up dredging them out with an apple peeler, which actually worked pretty good because the excess that it made ended up being the guys' forheads, which made them look more realistic. Well, as realistic as ghosts can be!! Also, the fondant is easily repaired to fix the holes if they are uneven (they were) or if it tears (it did).

Luckily, these are probably going to sell for 50 cents at tomorrow's bake sale instead of the $2.50 that Wheatberry's charges for them!! lol

Next time, naked brownies from a mix ;o)
