Trick out the Wilton Wonder Mold Kit this Halloween by transforming it to a wicked witch. The Chocolate Pro Electric Chocolate Melter makes a great cauldron to dip cake pops into melted Candy Melts candy.
One day in advance, create witch. Mix together 1/2 teaspoon of lime green Color Dust with 1/2 teaspoon of spruce green Color Dust. Use a cotton swab to apply Color Dust mix to doll?s face, neck and hands.
Cut doll?s hair to different lengths with scissors. Prepare royal icing and tint black. Lay doll on waxed paper-covered cake circle. Apply thinned black icing to doll?s hair using tip brush.
Trim Wonder Mold cake, taking 1/2 in. all around. Prepare for fondant covering. Place on a foil-wrapped cake circle.
Roll out black fondant 1/8 in. Cover cake; build up fondant around top of mold, 1 in. high x 7/8 in. wide. Cover with another layer of fondant. Trim front half of dress even. On back half of dress, cut triangles, 1 in. to 1/4 in., so it looks torn. Also, cut triangles, 1/4 in. to 1/2 in., up back of dress.
Roll out black fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut a strip, 3 in. x 5 in. Brush doll?s body with piping gel. Cover doll?s body, trimming as necessary. Trim neckline, 1/2 in.
Roll out black fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut strips, 3 1/4 in. x 4 in. Cut triangles, 1 in. to 1/2 in. long, on each side of 3 1/4 in. length, leaving 3/4 in. on trimmed triangles. Leave 1 in. down center uncut. Attach strips to each arm so triangles hang down.
Insert doll into dress. Roll out black fondant 1/16 in. thick. Cut strip, 1/4 in. x 2 1/2 in. Attach around neckline. Cut a strip, 1/4 in. x 3 in., and wrap around waist.

Instructions could be more visual but still wickeddon't try this if you have never worked with fondant before and and don't have the right tools. It was the second time I tried fondant and it wasn't easy. There needs to be more visual pattern instructions as it was hard to figure it out and I had to improvise. One of the dolls arms was frozen so it was difficult to work around it. I was surprised the shimmer did actually stick to the plastic I froze the cake which was a mistake and didn't put enough of a buttercream layer. I would try this again - just make sure I do 2 layers of fondant as I didn't quite follow that and would find the tools needed for the delicate parts of the dress
