Ingredients

  • Pre-made cupcakes
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Green and black fondant
  • Candy eyeballs

Steps

  1. Add sugar, cornstarch and milk to a large saucepan over medium heat and mix until smooth. Stir constantly until it begins to thicken. Reduce heat and continue to cook for about 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and add about 1 tablespoon of milk mixture to eggs, whisking until smooth.
  3. Slowly add 2 more tablespoons and pour egg mixture back into saucepan.
  4. Return to medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring until mixture thickens, about 2 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla and transfer to a bowl. Place plastic wrap directly onto the custard and place in fridge to chill.
  6. Roll out green fondant and use a large round cookie cutter to cut out green circles about 1/2 inch large than the cupcakes.
  7. Roll out black fondant and use a paring knife to cut the black hair and eyebrows.
  8. Brush a thin layer of water on the green fondant to stick on hair and eyebrows. Lightly score the face of the monster to make a mouth and add candy eyes.
  9. Fill piping bag with custard and pipe onto cupcakes.
  10. Gently cover cupcakes with monster faces, pressing the edges onto the sides of the cupcakes.
