8 Fashionably Creepy Halloween Treats

martha stewart halloween 2009 recipes

Here are a few new-found favorites from Martha that I recently discovered in her “Creepy Treats” gallery… which honestly leans more towards “clever & stylish, with just a dash of creep.” (Except for maybe the Ladies’ Fingers cookies, which easily qualify as full-on creepy!)

1. Devil’s Food Cake with Flame Tuiles –Is is just me, or is this cake more gorgeous than creepy?! This look would actually make for a pretty Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert too.

2. I Scream Sandwitches – “wicked witches” with an eerie tendency to melt!

3. Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes – Pumpkin-flavored cupcakes topped with adorable marzipan pumpkins. Pressed for time? Substitute any ready-made pumpkin candy.

4. Boo-tiful Cake – marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles make for super cute – and super easy – friendly ghost cake toppers!

5. Sweet Bones – piped meringue makes for a truly bone-chilling treat!

6. Invisible Pops – These “magical” lollipops actually have the look of cool, modern trees… great party favor idea for Halloween and harvest, and woodland-themed parties. (These could be really cute with red, white, and pink candy corn for Valentine’s day too!)

7.  Jack-o’-lantern Tarts – mini-pie tops are the perfect place for Jack to show his face!

8. Brain Cupcakes – witty labeling like “Albert Mindstein” and “Intell E. Gent” makes these clever cupcakes even more hilarious!

See anything here that looks especially tempting to YOU? =)

The ghost cake is really adorable. And I agree, the flame cake is more gorgeous than ghoulish. It would look fantastic on a Thanksgiving table.

Love these treats. That ghost cake is adorable. I usually make spooky cupcakes, but might have to make this cake instead. I guess I could do the same with cupcakes, but they look so cute all together. Maybe I’ll put those little ghosts around the cupcake stand and next to the cupcakes.

Here is my fashionably creepy Halloween treats suggestion: Why not eat insects? At the Montreal Insectarium gift shop, you can buy edible worms and crickets. You’ll definitely get a reaction from those!
