Witch Silhouette Cupcakes

Believe it or not, these silhouettes were created with rubber stamps!

Instructions: Using a cookie cutter or a glass, cut fondant into circles and leave out overnight to stiffen. Paint a clean rubber stamp with black food coloring and press the image onto the circles. If needed, fill in bare spots with a small paintbrush dipped in food coloring.

Just before serving, place the circles on top of cupcakes with buttercream frosting. Note: Fondant is available, in various colors, at craft stores. For these cupcakes, microwave it for 8 to 10 seconds, then roll out to 1/4-inch thickness.

Mini Pumpkin Cakes

To make this luscious dessert, use our simple Classic Chocolate Cake recipe. You can also try substituting your favorite cake recipe, or if you’re short on time, a boxed mix — one box yields 12 Mini Pumpkin Cakes, or two 8-inch-round layers.

To get the look of these single-serving pumpkin treats, trim the bottoms of cakes baked in mini Bundt pans to create a flat surface. Join two cakes so that the fluted tops are at either end, then drizzle with chocolate or vanilla glaze and sprinkle with coarse colored sugar or nonpareils before the glaze sets. Top with a marzipan stem.
