My kitchen is out of commission because we are having the cabinets painted. The timing is such that I will not be able to get my bake on for Halloween. However, I thought I would still share some of the *Halloween Baking Ideas* (found on Pinterest) I was thinking of making...
*Halloween Graveyard Cake* - this idea comes from Country Living. Essentially it is a box cake baked in a rectangular baking dish then topped with store-bought cookies (tombstones fashioned from Pepperidge Farm's Milano and Bordeaux cookies & fence made from Rademaker chocolate sticks). More details can be found here.
*Ghosties with the Mosty* - White chocolate will transform almost anything into ghosts. All you need to do is dunk your items (pretzel rods, Milano cookies, Nutter Butter cookies or anything else) into white chocolate. You will need to do a few coats and then add eyes (use mini chocolate chips, pipe chocolate/icing or use a black food marker). Here are some examples (also found on Pinterest)...
*Halloween Trifle/Parfaits* - Go crazy and stack up your favorite Halloween candy. You can keep it 'dry' or add layers of pudding, whipped cream, cake bites to make it a gooey, delicious mess. More details on the parfait can be found here.
*Halloween Cookies* - A true favorite of mine and the kiddies. I found some really cute decorating ideas I worth giving a try: skeleton cookies and the cutest ghost cookies ever.
Happy Baking & Eating!
