This is based on the ghost icing decorations from the fabulous I am baker blog.

For craft club, I bought some chocolate cup cakes and we iced the ghosts.

If you want to try yourself, the conversion from American measurements for the icing is as follows: 225g of butter 250g of icing sugar 1 jar of Marshmallow Fluff (with the baking stuff in Waitrose and Sainsbury’s) 2 tsp of vanilla extract. Mix all the ingredients together until fluffy.

This is how my mix looked after half the Fluff was added

And this is how it looked once I’d finished:

I’ve used this icing in a piping bag, but we used freezer bags with the corner snipped off.

Just squeeze your ghost shape out and use icing pens for the eyes and mouth
