Using the thinned orange icing, fill in the space of the orange outline

Using the thinned black icing, fill in the ears

Next day, using the white icing pipe a white oval onto the space about the orange icing and draw the jack-o-lantern face using the black icing

Sprinkle the halloween sprinkles onto the white icing to create a “candy” look
