To create the pumpkins, first you will need to get hold of some coloured ready to roll icing. You will be able to find this in most supermarkets, but you may struggle getting orange icing but you can buy yellow and red and simply mix them together.
When the cupcakes have cooled you can begin to assemble your icing pumpkin.
Firstly you will need to roll out a ball of green icing, no larger than a 10 pence piece. This will be base of your pumpkin head.
Once you have the ball, use a rolling pin to roll it out so it becomes a flat circle.
Place this on top of your cupcake.
Next we will work on the cupcake head. If you have managed to get orange icing, you can skip this step. Take a piece of yellow icing and a piece of red icing (determine how big you want your pumpkin head) and squish together, you will be to keep mashing together the colours until you have an evenly coloured orange icing. This make take some time but be assured this will happen.
Once you have the colour you want (if it is too dark, add more yellow, too light, add more red) roll into a ball using the palms of your hand.
Dab a little bit of water onto the bottom of the ball and place it onto the centre of the green already on the cupcake. When this dries it will 'glue' them together
To create the top of the pumpkin, take another smaller piece of green icing and form a curved 'stalk' that you can see in the photo.
Once you have made this, dab another bit of water onto this and place in on top of the pumpkin head.
This will 'glue' the stalk to the top of the pumpkin
Once that is completed, use your icing pen to drawn on the face, creating a zig zag mouth and two dot eyes.
When handling the icing, try and keep your hands dry and cool to prevent sticky and clumping so you can create a smooth surface.
