Spooky Halloween Baking and Desserts

While the supermarket aisles are bursting with “candy” (excuse the American-ism!) the little ones might not be able to do Halloween in quite the same way this year. If door to door is out of the question for your state, you can still get your Halloween fix with the family with some spooky and fun recipe ideas.

3. Claw Mark Cupcakes

These creepy cupcakes might look terrifying, but they’re actually quite sweet! The fondant claw mark technique looks very effective, but is actually super easy. Just don’t skimp on the strawberry jam ‘blood’ – the messier the better. Slice them open to reveal a gory cream cheese filling.
