Cake decorating at Halloween is the best. One reason is that it’s supposed to look scary, so if you goof, you can just say it’s all part of the creepiness of the theme! But there are also so many great ideas to try that you might spend all of October making cakes. That’s why I wanted to be sure you’d have these ideas early in the month.
Also, if you’ve got a birthday, anniversary, homecoming, or wedding you need to do a cake for in October, Halloween is a ready-made theme, which makes it really easy to come up with a creative cake design.
Pretty much anything dark and mysterious will work. Even obvious ideas are a huge hit. You could try:
• Frankenstein monsters
• black cats
• grave stones
• haunted house or castle
• the Grim Reaper
• a scary-looking hand
