“I vant a cupcake” Halloween Pumpkin

"I vant a cupcake" Halloween Pumpkin

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 »

I like them in ... Read More »

Frankenberry Cereal Bars

Frankenberry Cereal Bars

In 1971, General Mills released two Halloween cereals: Count Chocula and Franken Berry. The former was a chocolate cereal and the later was strawberry flavored. These two cereals are still popular today and have an almost cult following as far as cereals go, largely because you can almost only find them around Halloween (I hear some stores stock them year round) and need to wait ...

Wilton Mini Pumpkin and Ghost Pan

Wilton Mini Pumpkin and Ghost Pan

Shaped pans mean that you don’t need to spend a lot of time decorating your baked goods, since they already come out in a holiday-ready shape. This is certainly true of Wilton’s Mini Pumpkin and Ghost Pan which¬† bakes up a half-dozen mini-muffin sized pumpkin and ghost shapes for Halloween. The pan itself is nonstick and, though both the pumpkin and ghost have some facial ... Read More »
