just for the kids anymore, so before you put on your costume, grab your baking and
decorating supplies and get ready to let the creepy crawlers loose.
"Halloween is the one time of the year that you can take your decorating skills
to the dark side," said Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton. "From finishing pumpkin cookies with ghastly grins to creating creepy cakes decorated like graveyard skulls, it's the perfect holiday to have some fun in the kitchen."
Try these tips from the Wilton test kitchen for tasty and terrifying treats:
Creepy Cupcakes: Transform traditional cupcakes into other worldly creations by
decorating with eyeballs, spider webs or candy corn. Set up a decorating table during your
Halloween party and let kids make their own creepy creations.
Trick the Treat: Swap out the standard packaged treats for homemade sweets. Wrap
cookies, pumpkin cake pops and lollipops in decorative party bags for a fearfully fun takehome treat.
Mummy Wrap: Dress up your Halloween treats with themed baking cups. Pumpkins,
mummies and ghosts are an instant way to give your party extra personality.
a Stack the Skulls: Turn the crouqueen-bouche, a popular French dessert,
on its head by replacing cream puffs with mini-skeleton skulls. To increase the scare factor, mix in bone-shaped cookies and antique the treats with Candy Melts candy and Color Mist
food color spray.
