Ingredients

To decorate:

  • Cupcakes baked, cooled
  • Buttercream (won't be visible)
  • Sugarpaste orange, green, brown
  • Edible glue or water

Equipment:

  • Basic decorating toolkit
  • Leaf plunger cutter
  • rolling pin
  • cookie cutter circular set
  • water/glue brush

Instructions

  1. Cover your cupcake with a dome of buttercream using a palette knife.

  2. Using the straight edge of a 9cm (3.5in) cookie cutter, cut out anorange disk of sugarpaste.

  3. Cover the buttercream with the sugarpaste disc and attach it by smoothing over the top with your hand.

  4. Using a ball tool, gently make a hollow in the centre, as pictured. Be careful not to press too hard!

  5. Using a spike tool, make 8 lines from the centre, towards the edge of the cupcake, to create the pumpkin creases.

  6. Using a little brown and orange edible dust and a dry brush, dust in the creases to highlight the grooves.

  7. Take a small ball of brown sugarpaste and create a small stem by rolling it into a short tube, narrowing one end and flattening the other. Glue the narrow end in the centre of the pumpkin.

  8. Roll two small balls of green sugarpaste into strands, then twist into spirals and attach at the stem.

  9. Using a leaf plunger cutter, roll out some green sugarpaste. Press the leaf cutter into the paste to cut out 1 or 2 leaves, then dust with edible green dust to highlight. Glue next to the stem.
