Roll out 1/8 in. thick as needed. Reserve remaining fondant. Use pattern to cut out 12 bats, inner plaque (black) and plaque base (red). Let all dry 48 hours on cornstarch-dusted, waxed paper-covered boards.

Let dry 24 hours. And: Prepare and cover base board with 24 oz. reserved black fondant

Use tip 1 and piping gel to outline corner pattern. Transfer details to cake corners. Transfer small pattern for sides and back bottom designs. Use tip 1 and royal icing to outline and fill in details. Use icing to pipe tip 2 blood drips about 1/2 in. apart. Pipe tip 4 bead borders. Insert stirrers where bats will go; trim if needed.
