Ingredients:

  • chocolate cake mix
  • black cupcake liners
  • vanilla frosting
  • white fondant
  • candy eyes
  • pizza cutter/knife

Instructions:

1: Prepare cupcakes according to package directions and bake in black cupcake liners. Remove from oven and allow cupcakes to cool completely.

2: Top each cupcake with a thin layer of vanilla frosting. Roll out fondant to about the thickness of a fettucine noodle. Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut it into 1/4" wide strips.

3: Place fondant strips on top of the cupcake, layering the pieces as you go to resemble the look of a mummy's bandages.

4: When you're happy with the bandaged look, use a knife or kitchen scissors to cut off any extra fondant. Use your fingers to press the fondant layers and vanilla frosting together around the edges.

5: Finally, add candy eyes.
