Halloween Cakes That Are Equally Festive and Delicious
Instead of letting leftover candy sit and get stale (or gobbling it all up yourself), throw the tempting treats into a soft and chewy cookie cake. For an extra-sweet touch, pipe the edges with chocolate frosting, then garnish with Whoppers for a whimsical presentation.
At first glance these pretty cupcakes look like any other—but peanut butter lovers will be delighted when a big bite reveals a buried treasure inside. Simple vanilla cupcakes are classic and delicious, but feel free to swap them for chocolate if you prefer.
Gold for gold with this metallic pumpkin with dots. Apply round garage sale stickers at random around the pumpkin, then cover it top to bottom with metallic spray paint. After the paint dries, use the tip of a utility knife or crafts knife to gently peel away each sticker, leaving behind a pumpkin-colored dot.
Here’s a no-mess alternative to disposable real pumpkins with their icky innards. Carve designs in these pumpkin look-alikes and display them year after year. Illuminate with battery-powered candles, these pumpkins are safe to light indoors.
