    My daughter does a couple of things: she makes black widow spiders out of melted semi-sweet chocolate chips, just place in icing bag and squeeze out onto waxed paper in shape of spider and keep in fridge until party. Also she takes marshmallow treats and rolls them into small balls and calls them black widow spider eggs. Yeah, we like a spider theme around here.

    Something to add to the goul punch:
    Take a rubber glove, or two, like from a doctors office. fill with green or white kool aid (they make white kool aid now I guess) tie the end with a rubber band or twist tie so it wont leak and freeze till ready to serve punch. Cut the glove off and you have floating mummy hands in your punch bowl.​

    I am making this cake this weekend--its really fun to make and yummy.

    Chocolate-Glazed Maple Spice Cake

    Makes: 12 servings Prep: 20 minutes
    Bake: 28 minutes
    Chill: 15 minutes

    Ingredients
    Cake:
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup solid vegetable shortening
    1 cup packed dark-brown sugar
    3/4 cup maple syrup
    3 eggs
    1 teaspoon imitation maple flavor
    3/4 cup milk
    Filling:
    8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    1/4 teaspoon imitation maple flavor
    3 cups confectioners' sugar
    Frosting:
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    Whole walnuts, to garnish

    Directions
    1. Heat oven to 350°F. Coat three 8 x 2-inch round layer-cake pans with shortening; dust with flour, discarding excess.


    2. Cake: Whisk flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt in bowl.

    3. Beat shortening in second bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat in sugar and maple syrup. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Add maple flavor; beat until smooth. On low speed, beat in half of the flour mixture, then milk, then remaining flour mixture. Spread batter in prepared pans, dividing evenly.

    4. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 28 minutes, until golden brown. Cool in pans on rack 10 minutes. Remove cakes directly to rack to cool completely.

    5. Filling: Beat cream cheese, butter and maple flavor in bowl until smooth. Add sugar; beat until good spreading consistency. Place cake layer on serving dish. Top with 1-1/4 cups filling. Place second cake layer on top, then remaining 1-1/4 cups filling. Top with third layer.

    6. Frosting: In saucepan, heat cream just to a simmer. Pour over chocolate in a small bowl; whisk until smooth. Cool 5 minutes, until thicker but still pourable. Pour over cake, spreading to allow some to dribble down sides. Top with walnuts. Refrigerate 15 minutes before serving.

    Note: For sparkly walnuts, brush with corn syrup; dust with gold sanding sugar, available at: countrykitchensa.com. Check the baking aisle for imitation maple flavor.

    Ok here is another one....this one is popular with a lot of friends but a few people find it too realistic....I used to make it every halloween. It is served in a cat litter pan (a new one, for this purpose only....[​IMG] mine is purple)

    Kitty Litter Cake:

    you need one box of german chocolate cake and one box of yellow cake each, prepare per instructions in box. Does ot matter what shape you bake it in. After cooled a bit, pull the cakes apart into coarse bits and pieces. Make vanilla pudding, use 2 3.5 oz packages. You also need a box of vanilla sandwich cookies (12 - 16 oz better), crumble (best in food processor but the crumbles should be coarse like the clay type kitty litter. You also need tootsie rolls and a few drops of reen food coloring......
    Mix pieces of cake and pudding an approx 1/2 of the crumbles and pour in litter pan. Unwrap and microwave apprx 10 tootsie rolls for 10 sec (may have to repeat) so tey get just soft enough to shape a little to look like .....yes, you guesed it right......[​IMG] cat poo....place them in the box with the cake mix. Make sure you don't mix alll the pudding in at once, you want the mix moist but not soggy!!!!! Then take a handful of the sandwich crumbles and put them in a cup, put 3-4 drops green food color on and stir or shake until the crumbles are greenish. Set aside. Sprinke the other sandwich crumbles over the cake mix, then sprinle the colored crumbs on top. Now it looks like the litter with the odor control stuff....Now take another few tootsie rolls and nuke them, shape them, place on top of the 'litter' and the whole thing should look like a well used litter box....

    We do lots of little things

    Little hillshire farms weiners wrapped in crissont roll dough to look like mummys. Just bake them as long as the crissont roll package says.

    deviled eggs with little pieces of red pepper cut for horns and a tail

    Any kind of dip we smooth out in the bowl and make a spiderweb on it with ketchup/mustard.

    take permade flour or corn tortillas and use halloween cookie cutters on them. Then bake them in the oven until crisp.

    Any kind of halloween punch looks great if you take a clean rubber gove fill it with the punch tie it off and freeze it. Then peel off the glove and float the ice hand in the punch bowl.
