How to create Cursor Variable

I have create the following cursor and am attempting to run via MS Studio Express. When execute I get the following error but not sure how to correct:  Msg 16948, Level 16, State 4, Line 40
The variable '@MasterMenuNumber' is not a cursor variable, but it is used in a place where a cursor variable is expected.



DECLARE @MasterMenuNumber Int;
 
DECLARE MyCursor CURSOR LOCAL
FAST_FORWARD
FOR
SELECT MasterMenuNumber
FROM F01.MstrMenu
 
OPEN MyCursor
 
FETCH NEXT FROM MyCursor
INTO @MasterMenuNumber
 
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
 
DELETE FROM F01.BamRecs FROM F01.BldAMenu
   WHERE BamRecs.BAMenuNumber=BldAMenu.BAMenuNumber AND BldAMenu.MasterMenuNumber= @MasterMenuNumber
      AND BldAMenu.DietNumber not in
   (SELECT DietNumber from F01.MMDiets where MasterMenuNumber=@MasterMenuNumber);
 
DELETE FROM F01.BldAMenu WHERE MasterMenuNumber= @MasterMenuNumber 
  AND BAMenuNumber not in (SELECT BAMenuNumber FROM F01.BamRecs);
 
DELETE FROM F01.Snacks FROM F01.SnackRec
   WHERE SnackRec.SNAMenuNumber=Snacks.SNAMenuNumber AND Snacks.MasterMenuNumber= @MasterMenuNumber
      AND Snacks.DietNumber not in
   (SELECT DietNumber from F01.MMDiets where MasterMenuNumber=@MasterMenuNumber);
 
DELETE FROM F01.Snacks WHERE MasterMenuNumber= @MasterMenuNumber 
  AND SNAMenuNumber not in (SELECT SNAMenuNumber FROM F01.SnackRec);
 
FETCH NEXT FROM MyCursor
INTO @MasterMenuNumber
 
END

Thanks, you even anticipated my DeAllocate question for the @variable. Thanks for quick response
Were you suggesting by your additional link that a case statement would be alternative to my using a cursor in this situation??
