Cupcakes are a favourite recipe for any party, whether you?re celebrating Christmas, a birthday or Halloween. One of the best things about cupcakes is that you can change your decorating style to suit any occasion. During Halloween you can really let your creativity go wild. Decorate your cupcakes with spooky creatures, like spiders and witches, or even create little pumpkin themed cakes for some fun. If you?re searching for a way to make your cupcakes a little more interesting, choose a vanilla cupcake mixture and add orange or red food colouring, for a spooky effect!
Witch’s Hat Cookies
These Halloween treats are really simple to make and look great too! If you?re short on time during the days leading up to Halloween, you can take a shortcut by using premade cookies. If you?re a wiz in the kitchen, start the baking process by making your own cookies. From here, you simply cover the cookies with melted chocolate and place a mini ice-cream cone upside down on the surface. Continue by covering the cone with melted chocolate and use lollies to decorate. The cookie makes the brim of the hat, while the mini ice-cream cone creates the peak.
If you?re looking for a fun way to get your kid’s involved in the kitchen, this recipe is sure to do the trick. Buy a packet of arrowroot biscuits (or similar) and Halloween themed lollies from your local supermarket. Make two batches of icing, one orange and one black. Ice the biscuits and decorate using your Halloween lollies. If you?d like to get creative, use a piping bag to write scary words across the cookies, such as MONSTERS or BOO!
When planning your menu for your Halloween party, it is important to take into consideration the dietary requirements of all guests. This is something that you should be aware of, early in the planning process, to avoid any confusion or mishaps. Asking guests to mention any dietary requirements as part of their RSVP is a great way to solve this problem. For an easy way to create personalised invites, discover an unbeatable range of online invitations, which allow you to customise yours to include a request for dietary requirements.
Whether you decide to take the easy recipe path of Halloween biscuits or try your hand at witch’s hats cookies, you are sure to have a great deal of fun creating the scary foods! Remember, when it comes to Halloween, it is your chance to be as creative as you can in the kitchen!
