Scary Werewolf Cake and Werewolf Cub Cakes
You won't be a scaredy-cat after digging into this hair-raisingly good, party-perfect cake.



5 Creepy Crawly Cupcakes
Make an assortment of scary faces or just choose a favourite. Whatever the combination, they are sure to please a crowd and say "boo" to you!



Chunky the Chocolate Spider Cake
This freaky spider cake will delight all the little goblins in your home.




Halloween Caramel Apples
This is a great two-person job - one can coat the apples in the delicious gooey caramel then the other can roll it in Halloween sprinkles. You'll need nine wooden stir sticks or chopsticks. Any caramel left in the pot after dipping can be scraped onto greased foil, cooled and cut into squares for treats.

Dagger Through the Heart Cake
This playfully gory cake brings to mind tales of killing vampires with silver stakes through the heart. In this case, the heart is chocolate and the dagger a sugar cookie.



Chocolate Coffin Cake
The dollar store is the ideal source for any scary items, such as the plastic skeleton and snake we used here. Beware of low-fat ice cream because it melts quickly and crystallizes when refrozen.



Scary Werewolf Cake (recipe only)
You won't be a scaredy-cat after digging into this hair-raisingly good, party-perfect cake.




Graveyard Pumpkin Carrot Cake
A moist cake with fall flavours. For Halloween season, we've included instructions to turn this cake into a graveyard scene!





Chocolate Chocolate Chip Jack-o-Lantern Cake
Two Bundt cakes, one on top of the other, form a squat ball shape — perfect to mimic the shape of a pumpkin. When making your shopping list for the cake, double the cake amounts because you will need to make two Bundt cakes. If you like, leave 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the Butter Icing untinted to use as teeth on the finished cake.
