Happy Halloween! With the big day just a little over two weeks away, we wanted to share some spooky recipes & clever party ideas from the feedfeed community to make this year's Halloween Bash your best one yet.


Spooky 3D Ghost Chocolate Cupcakes by @tarateaspoon
These adorably scary cupcakes are made by using a lollipop with a round of white fondant draped over it. The best part is you can easily remove the spooky ghost and enjoy a classic cupcake underneath.  You can get the instructions for making the ghost here, and if you're looking for a great classic (one-bowl!) chocolate cupcake recipe, check out one of our favorites here.  Also, @tarateaspoon will be making these live on our  Snapchat (thefeedfeed) Friday, October 28th so be sure to tune in so you can learn her tips and tricks!
Halloween Pumpkin Cake with Salted Caramel Ganache and Meringue Ghosts by @rachelhsally

Food Themed Pumpkin Crafts by   @lilyshop
Get creative with your pumpkin decor this year and make some of these food-themed pumpkins from @lilyshop!  She uses wooden pumpkins from the craft store so they last year after year, but you could make a similar version with real pumpkins as well.
