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


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.
