Morbid Martha Stewart Mondays: Spooky Sweets!

I know, I know, this blog has become such an alliterative horror show.  Mrs. Janoff would be disgusted, but it is Halloween and it is my blog and I can resort to alliterative cliches if I want to!

Also,  guys, guess what?  I’m starting a new job today!  Hopefully it goes well and hopefully as you are reading this I am enjoying a happy and fun first day.  Fingers crossed!

So I haven’t done a dessert-centric food post yet and I plan on laying out my Halloween party menu tomorrow.  Therefore, today’s post is going to be all about desserts from Martha!

This is the prettiest cake, it really is.  I think it’d be great as a red velvet (bloody insides!) with cream cheese icing.

This isn’t something I’d actually make–too complicated–but this Haunted House cake is also beautiful!

For something a little lighter but still just as festive, check out these little orange sorbets inside oranges carved to look like jack-o-lanterns.

If you are into candy making you should give these white chocolate ghosts a try.  Martha has a lot of different candy making options on her site.  I’m personally fine with my Reeses and Snickers, but if anyone tries any of Martha’s candymaking recipes you should totally let me know!

Also: Cupcakes cupcakes cupcakes.  Here are some of my favorites.

Morbid Martha Stewart Mondays: Easy Crafts

Martha Stewart is, of course, the queen of Halloween. Starting in September I spend hours on the Halloween section of her website, looking at party ideas and craft ideas and food ideas and generally getting pretty excited and pretty overwhelmed.

I’m going to start the Martha ball rolling with some easy Halloween crafts, some of which I’ve done myself, some of which I want to do.  The key word here, again, is easy:

Black Cat Silhouettes

This one is super easy!  I made tons of these last year.  All you need to black construction paper, a white pencil, some scissors, and some double-sided tape.  Of course now that I have a real black kitty they will probably have less of an effect.  I saved most of them and so plan to put them up all over the place, although I’ll have to set them out of reach of Dexter.
