Prepare 500 g FunCakes Mix for Cupcakes as indicated on the package. Grease the two baking tins with baking spray and fill with the batter. Bake the cakes in the center of the preheated oven for 60 minutes. Let the cakes cool down using a cooling rack.
Prepare 125 g of FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the package.
Heat the Deco Melts as indicated on the packaging and fill a piping bag with it. Cut off a small tip, fill the mold to the edges and put in the fridge so that it can stiffen.
Roll out the purple and white fondant, cut strips from the white fondant and place this on the purple fondant. Go over it a few times with the rolling pin so that it melts together, as it were. Coat the dowel with piping gel and fold the striped cloth around it. Fold the backs together and cut tightly along the dowel.
Knead a little tylo powder through a small piece of black fondant and shape two pointed shoes. Insert the coated dowels and let stand to dry. Roll out a small piece of yellow and make buckles and straps that you stick on the shoe with edible glue. Paint the buckles gold with the food paint.
Make different sizes of the brown fondant and give them grain with the cutting wheel and let it dry. Knead the red and yellow fondant together, roll out and cut out two sizes of leaves for the flames.
Cut off the top of the cakes, fill the cakes with buttercream and stack back together. Cut it with a sharp knife in the shape of a kettle. Cover it all around with the cream and place in the fridge to stiffen.
Knead the black fondant well, roll it out on a work surface sprinkled with wheat flour and cover the cake with it. Place the cake upside down to make it easier to cover. Turn the cake over and make a roll of fondant for the edge around the kettle.
Cut the dowels to size and place in the cake. Heat the Dip ‘n Drip in the microwave for about 10 seconds and pour it over the top of the cake. Remove the bones from the mold and place them in the green slime.
Slightly dampen the fondant around the cake and use the cocoa powder and a large paint brush to give it a rusty appearance. Position the branches and place the cake on top. Stick the flames along the bottom edge with a little glue. Place the cake in the fridge until serving.
