I used Tootsie Fruit Rolls, orange and lime, to match the

cupcake liners and coordinate with the stocking leg straws.

Every witch has to have her accessories. . .

 It’s all about the shoes!

The Tootsie Rolls work like a sticky play Play-Doh, also fun for sculpting poinsettias!

I had a bit of learning curve with the shoes since witches need to be airborne. Contrary to popular belief, witch shoes do not defy the laws of gravity :)

I discovered it works best with 1/2 to 2/3 of a Tootsie Roll, rather than a whole Tootsie Roll. Cut your straw and warm the Tootsie Roll in your hands first, placing it on the end of the straw before shaping it.

Lay your straw on wax paper with the Tootsie Roll on the end and flatten and pinch to shape the end of your witch shoe.

Use a knife to cut a small v-shaped notch out of the Tootsie Roll to form the heel and shape as desired. You can even use a contrasting color to make a witchy shoe buckle.

I’m thinking they look a little more like elf shoes than witch shoes :)

I found the orange and black straws at World Market and black and white straws at Target.

    Love this little cupcakes!! Such cute ideas for me and my grand daughters to do for Halloween. We have so much fun decorating. I did the witches wreath with them last year and witches fingers with sugar cookies and almonds. But after reading your fun post. I am making them the soup or “witches brew” to eat before going trick or treating also the little fingers as the bread for the stew. Love this post so much. Really was fun to read. Hope you stayed safe during the hurricane, I am from NC also just getting mud slides and flooding in my area. Praying for you and your family’s safety.
