Sweet Spooky Treats...

HALLOWEEN COOKIES - Cookie sandwiches built to look like witch hats are a hit with kids. Purchase or bake chocolate cookies wide enough to hold a chocolate ice-cream cone.
HOMEMADE GHOSTS - A treat for little fingers, these pudgy meringue ghosts aren’t at all tricky to make. Using a pastry bag, squeeze dollops of homemade meringue onto a cookie sheet. After baking them, use a small paintbrush to add eyes with black paste icing. Then pile the ghosts high on a vintage tin cake stand that’s dressed for the holiday with glued-on black grosgrain ribbon and orange and black jelly beans. Get the recipe for a pumpkin spice cake with a jack-o’-lantern stencil.

Pumpkin Spice and Pecan Cake
The secret to this cake's perfect form? A fluted, dome-shaped pan. The pumpkin shape is actually two dome cakes fitted together. Recipe:

Spiderweb Cupcakes Super-easy white-chocolate toppers appear to float, Houdini-like, over chocolate cupcakes.

Spider Cake - All you need to create this dazzling cake is boxed cake mix, store-bought frosting, and black sanding sugar. Recipe: Along Came a Spider Cake
I had to share these with you... My mouth is watering with all these sweet spooky cute deserts & treats... with a tight colour palette & a specific theme it's amazing what you can come up with even the humble vanilla or chocolate cake can be iced with webbing or a howling black cat! All the recipes are linked to the captions - maybe you could try 1 or 2 recipes this weekend... hmmm yum!
