You can make peppermint or orange flavour too!
You will need icing sugar (500g), 1 dried egg white, 2 tsp strawberry flavouring, 4 tsp lemon juice, a rolling pin and cutters
Put the icing sugar in a bowl and make a hole in the middle with a spoon
In another bowl mix together the egg white, peppermint flavouring and lemon juice
Pour the mixture into the icing sugar
Stir the mixture, then knead together until it is a smooth dough
Sprinkle some icing sugar onto a clean work surface and roll out the mixture
Use the cutter to cut out your shapes and put onto a plate
Leave to dry for one hour
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
