Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes with Fondant Ghost Toppers

Last year for Halloween, I made a super delicious chocolate and orange layer cake with meringue ghost toppers . So this year, I wanted to bake something tasty, but a lot quicker and simpler too.

Halloween Mantel DIY Modern Decor

Halloween Mantel DIY Modern Decor

This year, Halloween is a little more demure at ours. So, I opted for creating a few decorations that would reflect a "calmer" and more cozy vibe with neutral colors and a more paired-down style. To be honest, I much rather prefer this black and white, clean, modern monochrome vibe than anything too loud anyways!  Not to mention that, (apart from the spider webs) this dรฉcor can be re-purposed for the November and Fall months too!
