Terribly Tasty Tuesdays: A Halloween Menu

So I’m trying to figure out my Halloween menu for my party this weekend.  This is what I have in mind thus far:

For my main, I’m planning on making this baked pasta dish from Martha Stewart.  So fun and fall and festive!

Also from Martha (duh) are these great savory pumpkin puffs.  They look easy to customize, so I might make some sweet ones as well.

Jon’s planning on making little meatballs (recipe not yet determined) and if I don’t serve mini pigs in blankets my party guests will revolt.

We have black and orange tortilla chips (we found them at Target!) and will have salsa and guacamole of course.  Jon makes some killer deviled eggs, I’m going to see if he can customize them Martha style.

I’m still trying to figure out my dessert.  Maybe the bootiful cakeSome cupcakes?  I made this graveyard pudding cake last Halloween, it is one of my mother’s standards:

So um, my mom’s version definitely looks better (I decorate cakes with all the talent of a blind five-year old), but mine tasted just fine.  If anyone has any dessert ideas please let me know!  We’re less than one week until the happy day!

    1. Really?! Only if it isn’t too much trouble. I’d LOVE to have a ghostly, ghoulish red velvet cake…with little marshmellow ghosts on top? Hee hee? (I can make the little ghost toppings if you don’t want to…and please don’t feel obligated to bring the cake either, although if you do that’d be awesome!)
