Knives

Makes 12

Zombie Cupcakes

1. Roll out the gray Half & Half very thinly on an acetate strip greased with shortening. Cut 6 rectangles, each measuring 1/2 by 1 inch. Cut diagonally across each rectangle to create 2 triangular knife blades.

2. Roll out the brown Half & Half very thinly on an acetate strip greased with shortening. Cut into a rectangle measuring 1/2 by 1 inch. Cut in half lengthwise, then make 5 evenly spaced vertical cuts to make knife handles.

3. Using the white Royal Icing in a pastry bag or parchment paper cone fitted with a fine plain piping tip, attach a knife handle to the corner of each knife blade. Pipe 2 dots on each handle to represent rivets. Let dry overnight. Store, uncovered, in a cool, dry place, but not in the refrigerator.
