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? Some white fondant (you could make it, or just buy it like I did), a circle cookie cutter (about the size of a cupcake) and a black edible ink pen.
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? He looks like a cross between a burlap sack and a voodoo doll. His character is always busting his stitches and dripping out the bugs and worms inside. 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.
