How To Decorate Halloween Cakes And Other Desserts?

  • Candies– Such as candy corn, seasonal pumpkin candies, Halloween suckers, ghost or pumpkin marshmallows, or candy eyeballs.
  • Sprinkles– Use sprinkles that match the Halloween theme in color or store-bought Halloween sprinkles.
  • Cookies– Such as Oreos crushed to look like dirt or decorated like a spider. Or half a Milano cookie decorated as a headstone.
  • Fondant– Use my Marshmallow Fondant and cut it into Halloween shapes and designs using stencils or your artistic free hands!
  • Colorful buttercream icing– Like this Easy Mint Frosting, Maraschino Cherry Frosting, Blackberry Buttercream Frosting, Mango Frosting, or this Easy Orange Frosting and this creepy Homemade Black Icing (Buttercream Frosting).
  • Store bought edible royal icing figures– Like mummies, ghosts, spiders, monsters, or gravestones.
  • Fruit– Turn bananas into ghost, clementines into pumpkins, grapes into eyeballs, etc.

Popular Halloween colors

  • Black
  • Purple
  • Orange
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Green (neon slime color)

Use gel or liquid food coloring to tint your cake, cupcake batters, cookie doughs and frostings the relevant color.

Storage of Halloween Treats

  • These desserts will require different storage options based on the contents of the ingredients.
  • Refrigerate– Desserts containing dairy and fresh fruits such as cakes, cupcakes, and puddings should be stored in a sealed container or covered in the fridge for 2-3 days.
  • Room temperature– Cookies can be stored in a cookie jar for up to 2-3 days.

My favorite Halloween Dessert- Candy Corn S’mores

My favorite treat to enjoy during this spooky season are these candy corn s’mores. They are so ooey gooey and delicious and super simple to make, especially with kids. You can replace candy corns with other seasonal candies, if you like.

Consider setting up a s’mores bar with lots of toppings and even different cookies and guests can get as creative as they like and come up with their own fun creations.

Partially Eaten Candy Corn S'mores on Pale Blue Background

Ingredients

  • 20 Graham crackers
  • 20 Marshmallows, Large
  • 1 cup Melted chocolate, Milk, semisweet or dark
  • 1/2 cup Candy corns, Roughly chopped

Instructions 

  1. Place 1 or 2 marshmallows on top of your graham crackers.
  2. Heat them in the microwave for about 15 seconds until the marshmallows melt. Timing may vary depending on the power of your microwave.
  3. Drizzle some melted chocolate on op of the marshmallows.
  4. Sprinkle some chopped up candy corns and enjoy!ย 

Storage

  • Tastes best when served immediately.
  • I don’t recommend storing leftovers because they are no longer ooey gooey and the texture is just not the same.
