Wilton candy eyes; you will need 20 eyes total (located in the Wilton section at major retailers and craft stores)


Ghost Cakes Perfect For Halloween Treats

Directions –


#1. Open all five packages of the Fancy Cakes and remove all ten cakes from their wrappers.


#2. Insert one straw into the base of each cake.


#3. Scoop a few tablespoons of black frosting into your sandwich baggie and make a small snip in the corner of the baggie using the kitchen scissors.


#4. Gently squeeze the frosting out of the baggie and a little bit onto the back of each candy eye and give each Ghost a pair of eyes. Work your way down the assembly line. 🙂


#5. Once all the Ghost have eyes, give them each a mouth. Have fun with it.


Happy, sad, squiggly; you name it. If you have older kiddos they can even help with this!


*Makes 10 Ghosts. 1 Ghost =- 1 serving.


**If not serving immediately cover (I use 9×13 baking pan with a lid) and store in a cool and dry area.
