Full disclosure: I've never seen an episode of Mad Men. But what I have seen is guys and gals everywhere going crazy for a totally swingin' '60s aesthetic. We're talking tulip skirts and boatneck sweaters, cufflinks and carefully parted hair. So why
Yet another tutorial from The Nightmare Before Christmas Dessert Bar coming your way! This time, we're making cupcakes to honor the unofficial mascot of Halloween-at-Christmas celebrations, Jack Skellington. He's the wiley, undead skelleton at the heart of the movie. And he has a big, round head that's perfect for us to re-create in fondant medallion cupcake toppers. What do you need?

Here it is, the first tutorial from our The Nightmare Before Christmas Dessert Bar! Remember Oogie Boogie? The busting-at-the-seams bad guy from The Nightmare Before Christmas who kidnaps Santa?

So I figured Oogie Boogie was a natural fit for serving up a plate of gummy worms and sour cherry gummies. It's easy, just grab a brown paper bag from the grocery store (it's best if at least one side is blank and not printed), some thick black or brown yarn, scissors, a paper hole punch and a safety pin. First, cut the brown bag in half, keeping the bottom half of the bag.
