Halloween is just around the corner! Are you planning a halloween party? I have been wanting to share this party with you all for almost a year now! I threw this party for my little girl’s 6th birthday. Since I wasn’t blogging at the time (see this post if you are wondering why), I took pictures of it but never shared it. I am so excited to finally share all the details! I am breaking it up into three parts and today I will share the halloween party dessert table. The color scheme I chose was black, grey and orange.
The focal point of the halloween party dessert table is the black cauldron with the witch’s brew (apple juice, Sprite and dry ice). I am kicking myself for not getting a picture of the whole set up with a little bit of dry ice in the witch’s brew. That would have been the icing on the cake. Oh well, I did snap a quick pick during the party so that you could see it in action.
The kids drank their witch’s brew out of the googly eyed cups. I first saw the idea for the cups here. My kids loved helping me make them. I hot glued the eyes on while they picked the eye combinations. One big eye and one teeny tiny eye, you get the drift.
We also had ghost cupcakes. Still need to practice my frosting ghost making skills. I used this recipe for the super moist cupcakes with sour cream and cream cheese frosting. This is one of my favorite combinations for cupcakes and cake. The cake is just like it says, super moist and the frosting is not too sickly sweet.
Are we done with the sweets? Of course not! We had orange pumpkin halloween peeps pops on skewers. I put them in cellophane bags and tied the bottoms with black twist ties.
I made individual bags of halloween chex mix and named them creepy crunch. The mix included Chex, peanuts, candy corn, candy pumpkins, pretzels, carmel popcorn and Reeses Pieces.
Moving along to more halloween party treats! I also tried out the melted Hershey’s kisses on pretzels with a candy corn on top. I renamed them vampire teeth. I got the recipe from here. They were good but I wasn’t too happy with how they looked. Melting the chocolate that way caused them to not be tempered properly and resulted in fat bloom. Has anyone ever tried making these candy corn kiss bites and had better luck?
Lastly I put together some cotton candy spider webs. The spiders were just the plastic spider rings that I had washed first. I tried finding white cotton candy but no luck. The closest I could find was this yellow and orange mixture.
Oh and a special cupcake for the birthday girl. I melted some chocolate and piped the number six out on a piece of parchment paper. After it hardened, I stuck it on top of a cupcake for her. It looked good until I put the candles on and then it melted right over. Waw, waw waaaa.
Stay tuned to see the Halloween party decorations and Halloween party games in the next posts coming up!
