Spooky and Festive Decorating Tips
Baking for Halloween has never been so easy! Dress up your favorite pumpkin spice bread, red velvet cupcakes or vanilla pound cake with our Halloween Collection, which features spooky witch hats and jack-o’-lanterns in black and orange. Choose from Rectangular Loaf Pans, Mini Rectangular Loaf Pans, and Ruffled Baking Cups.
Whether it’s a boxed cake mix or a homemade spice bread recipe, paper bakeware makes it quick and easy to share spooky desserts at parties, at the office, or at an after-school get together. Simply pour your batter directly into the paper bakeware, place in the oven and bake. Once they’ve cooled, use frosting and candy to make them look like ghosts, pumpkins, black cats, or monsters.
A few decorating ideas:
Use peppermints, gumdrops or M&M’s for eyes, gummy straws for hair, and candy corn for noses to make spooky monster faces on cupcakes.
Place gummy worms on top of a chocolate frosted loaf or cupcakes for a creepy-crawly treat.
Place two or three pumpkin-shaped candies on top of a cupcake with green frosting for pumpkin patch cupcakes!
Use black frosting and place eight sticks of licorice along the sides of cupcakes to make a spider. Use red of white candy for the spider’s eyes.
Place bright orange frosting on top of cakes or cupcakes and decorate the tops with brown M&M’s, or use brown frosting with orange M&M’s. Mix and match both frosting colors for festive presentation.
For pumpkin cupcakes, decorate the tops with bright orange frosting and draw pumpkin ridge lines with black frosting. Place a pretzel in the center for the pumpkin stem.
