Whenever I hear the word "witch" I will always remember a girl named Caroline Pearce whom Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield suspected to be a witch back in second grade. Oh I do hope you know what I am talking about. It's book #33 on the Sweet Valley Kids series way back when... ummm.... hmmm... let's see... okay.. when I was young. There, I said it. :)
So, for my dear Bake Happy readers who are younger (or older) and just can't relate, Sweet Valley is this series of books about twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield who looks exactly the same but are different as night and day when it comes to their personalities. To cater to kids/teens of different ages, there are the Sweet Valley Kids, Sweet Valley Twins and Sweet Valley High books. My sister and I were into the Sweet Valley Kids series and every Saturday, we get to buy two from the series for 54 pesos at the National Bookstore in Harrison Plaza. These are the books that got me started on reading books and the culprit to me wearing
ridiculously thick and heavy glasses up to now.
I can't remember now how the story ended, (of course, Caroline is not a witch) but I remember there were chanting ("double double toil and trouble"), spells, toads (?), cauldrons and of course hats. Witches' hats. And here I am, so into the Halloween spirit, showing you how to make it in fondant.Fondant Witch's Hat Tutorial
What we need:
Fondant in purple, orange and green
Round fondant cutter
Water and brush to glue things together
(1) Roll purple fondant thinly and cut out round shapes. Set aside
(2) Go get a big chunk of purple fondant, shape it into a tear.
(3) Flatten the base.
(4) Cut some orange fondant strips
(6) Paste the orange strip into the base of the hat
(7) Using the green fondant, add some buckle design.
Happy Halloween everyone! :)
