Cake EYEballs

The perfect bite of cake doesn’t exist unless you’re talking about cake balls. Each one has a perfect cake to icing ratio. When making these Cake EYEballs, just google any cake ball recipe online. But be sure to coat them in white chocolate to resemble an eyeball.

This recipe uses fondant to complete the eyeball look and if it scares you to use fondant, don’t worry. You can buy pre-made colored fondant at many grocery stores.

The trick to getting the fondant to stick to the cake ball is the coat it with a lite layer of water.

Then use the edible makers used in the video to draw on the veins and voila. Cake EYEballs.

Spider Cookies

These spider cookies are super simple. Just google any peanut butter blossom recipe and replace the HERSHEY’s Kisses with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Be sure to place the cups on the cookie when the cookie is warm so it sticks! Then use a small plastic baggie to make an easy DIY icing pipe bag. Just spoon the icing of your choice into one of the corners of the bag and seal the bag up with no air pockets. Then cut the tip of the plastic bag off the corner that holds the icing. Now you can make the spider legs and eyes!

Monster Cupcake

Use the DIY icing pipe bag trick to decorate some fun Halloween cupcakes!

You’ll need a special grass icing tip to make the hairy Monster Cupcake. You can find it in the baking section of grocery and craft stores.
