Hi everyone, I’m so excited to share with you my Hocus Pocus themed Halloween cupcakes! I really love how they turned out! These cupcakes are a tribute to Hocus Pocus, one of my favourite childhood films. I love Halloween and the various possible cake designs that come with it! In this post I show how I made the broom, mop and vacuum cleaner cake toppers. There is a list of the items used in this tutorial at the bottom of the page.
Before I get on with the tutorials, here’s a close up of the famous spell book. “Book, darling, come to me!”
Hocus Pocus Cupcake Toppers Video Tutorial
Hope you liked the video! Read on for my written step by step tutorial.
Hocus Pocus Themed Broomstick Cupcake Topper
The colours I used to make the broomstick were Sugarflair Dark Brown for the handle and PME Old Gold for the bristles.
Firstly, I rolled a small piece of brown modelling paste into a tube and flattened one end. I then left this to harden overnight.
Taking s small piece of modelling paste, I moulded it into a tear shape and then flattened it with my fingers.
Using a little vodka, I stuck the tear shape onto the flattened part of the handle.
I then used my knife and scriber tool to mark the bristles.
Marking the bristles on the bottom too gives a real broom like effect.
I took a small piece of grey fondant, rolled it into a tube and flattened it. I then stuck it around the top of the bristles.
Lastly, I took two very small pieces of green fondant, rolled them into small tubes and stuck them onto the broom as can be seen above.
Hocus Pocus Themed Mop Cupcake Topper
To make the colours I needed, I added a little bit of PME black gel paste to my modelling paste to make the light grey colour. I then added a little more black to make the darker grey.
Just like I did for the broomstick, I rolled a piece of brown modelling paste into a tube and flattened it at one end.
I then moulded a light grey piece of modelling paste into a tear shape and stuck it onto the flattened part of the handle. Using my fingers, I moulded the end of the tear so it flicked to one side.
Again, I used my knife and scriber tool to mark the mop head.
I rolled out a piece of dark grey modelling paste and cut in into a strip. I then stuck this around the top of the mop head, trimming it to fit.
Using my knife and scriber tool, I gently marked an indent as can be seen in the image above.
Hocus Pocus Themed Vacuum Cleaner Cupcake Topper
Firstly, I rolled a piece of grey modelling paste into a tube. Then I curved one end over slightly. This can be seen in the image above. I then left it to dry overnight.
Next, I moulded a piece of red modelling paste into a thick sausage shape and then pressed down so the back was flat. I stuck the handle on top as can be seen above. I pressed down slightly so the handle made a groove in the red modelling paste.
Next, I took a small piece of grey modelling paste and shaped it into a square. I then did the same with a smaller piece of green modelling paste and stuck it on top of the grey one.
Using my fingers, I gently smoothed the two colours together, creating slanting sides.
I used my ball tool to make a hole in the top of the green square.
Using a little vodka to secure, I put the end of the handle into the premade hole. I then stuck a small piece of grey modelling paste on the handle as can be seen above.
To make the moons, I simply rolled out some white modelling paste and cut out three circles. Once the circles had hardened, I dusted them with Sugarflair’s Pearl White dust. The bats were made out of a mould.
