Our community center had a Haunted House and Dotter and I provided a bake sale for the event. Culinary geeks that we are, we overworked ourselves and could hardly keep our eyes open while selling them.
Adorable, creative, tired witch.

Silly monsters for the kids. Okay, every baker has their regrets; hindsight tells me that his hair looks like a unibrow – Now that’s scary!
Big googly-eyed spiders! They’re web designers.
We made the spider’s bodies from cake balls.
Jack Skellington was the hit of the night! Dotter made these. She gets really crazy about Jack!
Adorable, creative, tired witches feel prettier with black lipstick.
Speaking of witches, how about witch finger cookies, complete with wart! How? We used icing to stick a green M&M on them and then covered them in a simple powdered sugar icing which was a creepy green. The fingernail is a sliced almond.
And finally… six feet under bars. We used jewelry boxes lined with cardstock. We then placed 7 layers bars inside each box and laid the toy skeleton to rest on top of the bars and wrapped them. We covered the top with theme fitting scrapbook paper and added a little RIP label and, of course, a ribbon makes everything better.
I hope you have a wonderfully spooky Halloween and use this weekend to connect with people in your community. What a fun time to meet the families in your neighborhood!
