Split a chocolate wafer cookie in 2. Put each piece on each side of the cupcakes so that you can create bat wings. Utilize miniature sandwich cookies for the bat body, as well as white icing and candy for the eyes.

If you have an obsession for witches, then this is your cake. Make a pumpkin looking cake base by stacking 2 bowl cakes on top of each other. Then, coat the outside of the cake with buttercream and roll out. Use buttercream and orange sugar paste to cover the cake and make it look blood-curdling red.

Naturally enough, you can easily buy different kinds of glitter cake toppers. However, we recommend that you create your own edible cake decorations by using sugar paste. For example, you can use black sugar paste for the pumpkin’s eyes and mouth. Also, you can make the witch’s body by rolling out green sugar paste. Then it is up to you to decorate her outfit according to your preferences.
