If there’s one thing I wish I did more on my pages, it would be tablescapes. I always loved flipping through magazines when I was younger and seeing how they’d create these fun and themed party tables. So, this year I went to Michaels and got everything for a Spooky Treat Table. I can say without a doubt I’ll be doing MANY more of these.
I got all of the toppers, decorations, and signs from Michaels. To start off I made a chocolate cake with two ghost toppers. When you stick the toppers in the cake just be sure to wrap them with a bit of clear cling wrap. I used a chocolate fudge cake mix and made it as directed in two 8″ pans. The perimeter of the cake is covered with mini chocolate chips and here is the frosting recipe!Print
I love caramel popcorn, and everyone’s choice for this table was Chicago-style popcorn. It’s a mix of caramel and cheese and super delicious.
For the tarts, I love Jello No Bake cheesecake and then just tint it orange! For a homemade version, I’ve used this one before and really liked it.
This dessert dip is so easy to make and really simple to customize. I made one version with sprinkles and candy corn and the other with Oreos.Print
Lastly, I baked rainbow chip cake in each cauldron and make sure not to fill the batter all the way to the top. They’re frosted with a swirl of lime green buttercream and a spider ring garnish.Print
