Isn’t every celebration really a good excuse to share a feast? If you’re entertaining this weekend then here a few easy ways to put the spooky into your spread…
Cupcakes have become essential buffet party food and are easily decorated for each different occasion with toppers. The Purple Pumpkin shows they’re “an easy way to tart up baked goods too” if you don’t have the ingredients for cupcakes, skewering her’s into doughnuts instead. Her designs include a pumpkin, skull, devil, vampire, ghost and Frankenstein ‘s monster.
If you do have a well-stocked larder however, head to Party Delights blog for a “scarily simple cupcake recipe” as well as their free printable cupcake toppers. Featuring black cats, ghosts, witches and spider webs, “download, print and attach to cocktail sticks for instant Halloween cake decorations that your guests will love!”
And, if you do still have time for a spot of baking, click print on Holiday Cottage to have a go at its Melted Witch Cookies whose pointed hats will certainly stick out on your table or head to the Woodland Trust’s Nature Detectives for downloads on fairy cakes, surprise fillings, spooky toppings and exploding frosting or check out the Tongue-tingling things to eat section of its Free Spooky Activities page for instructions for pumpkin soup served in a pumpkin cauldron, toffee apples and spiced apple juice.
Party Planning Center’s “dememented bat” Free Printable Halloween Wineglass Lampshades come in two colours – don’t forget you’re printing them out on paper so, as Carla suggests, “Your best bet (especially if children will be present at your Halloween party) is to use battery operated votives”. She also includes coordinating treat bag tops and labels on her blog too.
