Wild and Wacky Halloween Cakes
Costumes? Check. Candy? Check. Halloween cake? It may not be the first thing on your Halloween to-do list, but why let the kids have all the fun? Let your inner freak flag fly with one of these frightful Halloween cakes.
We know, we know — if you’re like us, you see these crazy sorts of confections on the covers of magazines in the checkout lane and think one thing: “Who has the time for that?” But really, Halloween is unlike any other holiday. Think about it: what other time of year is it even remotely acceptable to, say, serve a dessert with a bloody hand on top of it? What’s better is that these cakes aren’t only devilishly distinct (and delicious), they’re a lot easier to make than they look. Most take less than an hour to prepare and use store-bought cake mix or ready-make cakes, leaving you more time to get creative with the fun part — decorating!
If not cake, perhaps Halloween cookies or other spooky food…
