Pumpkin Pie Pie Pan

Pumpkin Pie Pie Plate

I’m a big fan of pumpkin pie and make them quite often throughout the fall. A good, homemade pie with a good, homemade crust is tough to beat, but I think there is one way that you could improve the design: a pumpkin-shaped pie pan. This Pumpkin Pie Pan is about the same size as a regular 9-inch pie pan, but with enough flair to ... Read More »

Nomskulls

When it comes to baking, there are some things that you can do with silicone that you just can’t quite do with other materials. One of those things is creating nifty cupcake molds in unusual shapes, like these cute and spooky Nomskulls Cupcake Molds.

Witch’s Fingers Cookie Pan

Witch Finger Pan

Witch’s fingers are a classic Halloween cookie and, while I don’t generally make them myself, I’ve eaten more at Halloween parties than I can count. They’re shortbread or butter cookies that are formed into a knobby, finger-like shape, given small lines for joints to add realism and finished off with a sliced almond “nail.” They’re creepy and definitely remind you of the wicked witch when ...

Once you’ve made some Spiced Apple Cider, or if you simply happen to have a bottle of storebought cider in the back of the fridge, it is a snap to make one of my favorite wintertime drinks, Caramel Apple Cider. I was first turned onto this drink on a visit to Starbucks, where it is generally available year-round but is often featured on the menu ... Read More »

Last year, I decided to try to incorporate food into one of my Halloween jack-o-lanterns in addition to the usual array of scary, smiling pumpkin faces. It worked out well and I came up with a creepy skeleton hand holding a cupcake. This year, I wanted to try my (non-skeleton) hand at incorporating food into my pumpkin carving again. I considered trying to go with ... Read More »

Bone Chilling Ice Cubes

Bone Chilling Ice Cubes

One of the first food-related, creepy Halloween things that I learned to make was a big ice hand to float in a bowl of punch. You make this by filling up a latex (rubber or similar) glove with water, tying it off like a water balloon and freezing it, then peeling the glove away when you’re ready to use the ice hand. It looks neat ... Read More »

Jack o Lantern Cupcake Pans

While pumpkins fit perfectly into Halloween just as they are, jack o’ lanterns have an even more perfect fit because Halloween is really the only holiday where the carved pumpkins are showcased. There are lots of pumpkin-shaped baking pans, like the Pumpkin Patch Pan and the Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Pan, but there aren’t a whole lot of pans that incorporate the jack o’ lantern face ...
