Give your guests a good fright with these ghoulish ideas.
You should be afraid — very afraid — of these creepy Halloween cakes. They're scary delicious! Pumpkin chocolate layer cake makes the perfect centerpiece for Halloween parties, while a devilishly delicious Halloween bundt cake is a great way to fuel-up for trick-or-treating. Haunted house cakes and graveyard cakes are fun to make with kids, and you can decorate your own with spooky shapes, leftover Halloween candy, red food coloring, chocolate sprinkles and other edible decorations. With some of these Halloween desserts, you'll even have a few more party guests at your house like mummies, ghosts, witches and — worst of all — spiders. Whatever recipe you decide to try, don't skimp on the frosting or sprinkles because October 31 is the one day a year when sugar is basically it's own food group (parents, we're sorry!).
But don't stop here: Finish off your Halloween dessert table with these festive Halloween cupcake ideas and Halloween cookie recipes. Throw on a Halloween Netflix movie to really get in the spirit, then wash your treats down with a glass (or two) of these frightfully simple Halloween cocktails.
