Fill small bowls with green and red jelly and arrange sweet snakes and frogs in jelly. Leave to set.
Make-up your favourite cup-cake recipe and leave to cool. Make icing by combining 250g softened butter, 3 cups sifted icing sugar, 2 Tbsp milk and pink food colouring. Smooth ¼ of the icing over cakes. Add remaining icing to piping bag and pipe onto cupcakes in brain patterns using tip 44, 45, or 46.
Place glace cherries in the centre of lychees from a can. Add to a jug of raspberry cordial or raspberry soda.
Wrap fine strips of puff pastry around cheerio sausages and cook under the grill on 180°C for 6 – 8 minutes. Decorate with mustard or tomato sauce eyes.
Place large white marshmallows on plate. Cut licorice strips to appropriate size for legs and stick to marshmallows with a dab of icing. Add eyes with black gel tube icing or icing pen.
Slice the top of a banana about 5 – 6 cm from tip, on an angle. Insert lollipop stick into the bottom of each and decorate with chocolate icing mouth and eyes using gel tube icing or icing pen.
Make ham or polony sandwiches. Cut out in shape of hand using cutter or trace around own hand. Insert blanched, sliced almonds to tips for fingernails and drizzle with tomato sauce ‘blood’.
Dim the lights and serve with some bloodcurdling sound effects. Your adult guests may enjoy some steaming pumpkin punch in the meantime.
