Flow in using thinned color flow in cut parchment bag. Let dry. Cover top 2 in. of 2 Lollipop Sticks with full-strength color flow. Attach sticks to back of house leaving 2 in. extended at bottom. Let dry.
Also: Mold 12 candy tombstones in cookie pan. Use painting method to add black details; let set. Fill cavities half full; chill until firm and unmold.
And: Cover base board. Prepare Chocolate Fondant and tint black. Cut 3 cake circles to 11 in. diameter and tape together. Cover with fondant rolled 1/8 in. thick. Reserve remaining black fondant.
Bake and cool 1-layer 6 in. cake, 2-layer 8 in. cake (trim each layer to 1 1/2 in. for a 3 in. high cake) and 2-layer 10 in. cake (4 in. high). Tint 54 oz. fondant orange. Prepare cakes for Stacked Construction and cover with rolled fondant. Stack cakes.
Using patterns and toothpick, mark fence around 8 in. cake and bats/crows/scrolls around 10 in. cake. Using tip 3 and buttercream, outline fence; outline and fill in bats and crows (pat smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Pipe tip 3 violet scrolls. Pipe tip 5 bead bottom borders on all cakes. Bake and cool cupcakes; ice smooth and add sprinkles. Attach tombstones with icing. Position around cake. Insert house in cake top.
