How to decorate Spooky Eyeball Cupcakes

  1. Roll the fondant out to a thickness of 5mm (you can use cornflour on your work top to prevent the fondant sticking). Cut out 6 circles that measure 7cm in diameter.
  2. Roll out the lime green fondant to a thickness of 5mm, then cut out 6 circles that measure 3cm in diameter.
  3. Put a tablespoon sized heap of the vanilla buttercream on top of the cupcake. Then cover with the white fondant smooth down any lumps. The aim is to form a smooth dome.
  4. Add the lime green disk in the middle of the cupcake, then using your black line icing, add a black pupil.
  5. Using the red paste directly from the pot, paint thin veins coming from the central circle, to artistic create the bloodshot eyeball effect.
