Halloween Party Ideas

These are some of the Halloween treats I’ve made over the past few years. Sorry about some of the poor picture quality. Most of them are probably self explanatory but feel free to ask any questions about them in the comments.

Pumpkin Cake:

Bake 2 bundt cakes and stack on top of each other. Frost with orange frosting using a spatula. Frost an ice cream cone with green icing. Put it in the freezer till the icing hardens for easier handling. Add to the top of the cake.
