If you’re looking for ways to spook up your Halloween treats, we’ve got you covered! With these nifty tricks, we guarantee that anyone can make Instagram-worthy snacks. Here are five easy food decorations you can use to scare your friends and family this Thursday! 

1. Blood-oozing donuts

What other perfect dessert is there than a bloody donut? To create a tasty red glaze, mix powdered sugar with a few drops of milk and red food coloring. You can pour this over donuts, cupcakes, cakes, or whatever baked goods you have available.

2. Spooky footprint cupcakes

To add a simple design on your cupcakes, you need a stencil and some powdered sugar. You can also use cocoa powder for contrast. Cut out some shapes (e.g. footprint, witch hat) on a piece of paper, place the stencil on top of your baked goods, and sprinkle away!

3. Flying bat cupcakes

Try experimenting with colored paper! Cut out some bats, tape them onto toothpicks, and stick them in the cupcakes. If you’re not confident about drawing symmetrical wings, you can print out a picture and trace the outline.

4. Scary Graveyard Edibles

Want to make an edible graveyard? No problem! Crushed Oreo cookies are the tastiest kind of dirt. Poke some holes in your cake and add a few sour worms to upgrade your munchies. For a finishing touch, stick in some paper gravestones.

5. Chocolate Spider Webs

Spider webs freak people out, but you can turn them into tasty treats. Melt some white chocolate, put it in a Ziploc bag, and cut off its tip to make a piping bag. For light-colored cupcakes, we recommend using milk or dark chocolate for contrast.
