T.G.I.F. everyone! It’s time to hurry up and get in Halloween party mode (if you haven’t already). I’m going to an all-out Halloween bash, (adults only) on Saturday night… These are crazy, fun grown-ups who like to dress up and be kids for awhile. I can’t wait. My costume is neon pink, black, and extra sweet. I’ll share it next week.
I love seeing Halloween ideas from other food bloggers. This year I found a few totally original ideas from a few of my favorite blogs. I was so excited, I had to share them with you.
Credit goes to the creative baker’s behind the scenes at Wilton. Don’t you love all of their fun, holiday ideas? How cool is this cheesecake… when you slice it, each guest gets a sweet super-sized candy corn piece.
I have to say I am not into vampires and eyeballs, and creepy things. There’s a reason we say, “Happy Halloween”. It’s supposed to be a happy holiday. Skeletons have always been on my creepy list, until now! Do you know why these skeletons are so happy? Because they’re made with chocolate-covered pretzels. Go check out the step by step tutorial for these on one of my favorite blogs, Cookies and Cups.
I’ve seen a ton of ways to make Halloween cupcakes ~ ghosts, pumpkins, monsters, etc. They’ll all pretty cute, but these cupcakes caught my eye. Cauldron Cupcakes… who would have thought? Meg of Mega-Crafty (love the play on words) is the baker behind these cupcakes.
I’m kind of a chocolate strawberry connissuer. There are so many ways to decorate and flavor them. Raychel of My Creative Way created these clever Frankenstein strawberries. She also created a bat, a mummy, and a pumpkin in strawberry form. You have to check them out.
In addition to strawberries, I have a thing for chocolcate-covered Oreos. They’re an impressive treat, but most of the work is already done before you even start. You just need to dip them in chocolate and decorate. These adorable mummy Oreo pops were created by Shelley at HowDoesShe.com . This blog has a wealth of information from cooking to organizing to keeping that spark alive with your honey. It’s one stop blogging!
Finally, I leave you with this surprise jack-o-lantern cake. Seriously , there’s a surprise baked right into it. Any guesses? Oh, you want me to tell you what’s inside? Go check out Amanda of I Am Baker’s blog post. She’s provides a detailed picture tutorial on how to make this. She is ridiculously creative and talented (but I think you’ll see that when you see what she made).
I hope you’re inspired! I know I am!
