|Jill and I made these for our ward Halloween cake walk.|
We thought it would be fun to have smaller portions of treats and make
it so more kids could win.
This is what we came up with besides the already blogged about fingers:

We used a star tip for the orange goblin and tip 9 for the purple guy. We found the edible eyes at Wal-Mart.
Ethan did this one all by himself. It was so cute watching him, tongue out and all. Pretty good for his first piping job ever.

I first thinned out the colored icing just a little so I could pour it over the fingers (on a cookie sheet.) For the hairy monster I put sprinkles over it before it dried. Once they were dry I added the details. For the hairy one I used a paint brush to add red and brown to the white nail.
Here's the recipe I used
- 4 cups (about 1 lb.) confectioners' sugar
- 6 tablespoons warm water
Makes:About 3 cups of icing.
Tip: when not using the frosting keep it under a wet paper towel because it dried quickly.

How to make modeling chocolate:
Take 1 bag of Wilton chocolate melts, melt them in microwave with 1/4 cup corn syrup, stir, then let it set up. After several hours or overnight it will be set. Once you start playing with it, it will soften up so you can mold it. It does get greasy so don't play with it too much. Let your creation dry again before you use it.
* Some colors don't require as much syrup so start with 1/8 cup first.
Thanks Danella for teaching me this. I loved doing this with you!

Happy Birthday Caleb!
