Halloween Decorating Tips
It’s that time of the year again: Zombies, ghosts and skeletons are flooding the streets and walking from one house to another collecting treats. Halloween is right around the corner and for those, who already have collected enough candy or instead prefer to party on this scary night, we are offering some ideas and tips to decorate for the creepiest cocktail party of your live.
The bloody Pink Colada
Try and mix a SHATLER’s Piña Colada with a little bit of cream and add some grenadine syrup on top for a “bloody” awesome look. The created Pink Colada also tastes delicious.
Gruesome grimaces and creepy faces
You can conjure up the real Jack-O’Lantern-feeling in your guests’ glasses with a physalis. Just take a food pen and draw a creepy pumpkin face onto the small, orange fruit and put it on a wooden pick into the glass: Ready is the mini-pumpkin for you Halloween decoration.
The classic SHATLER’s eyeball bowl haunts you again this year. Just lard two litchis with cherries, spit them on a cocktail pick and put it on the glasses’ rim, now a creepy drink stares at you. Try this one with the Havanna Special, the dark red drink is perfect for Halloween.
Pumpkin Cake Pops
For 18 of these especially eerie pumpkin cake pops you need the following ingredients:
- 300 g light or dark cake base (self-made or ready-made)
- 150 g white chocolate coating
- 140 g double cream cheese
- 80 g melted butter
- 80 g powder sugar
- 50 g dark chocolate coating
- 18 pistachios
- 1 spoon SHATLER’s Caribbean Ron Gold
- Orange food coloring
- Plus: 18 wooden sticks
First crumble the cake base. Then, in a second bowl, thoroughly blend the butter, fresh cheese, powder sugar and the spoon of rum. After that add the cream cheese crème to the crumbs until a shapeable dough is created. Afterwards form 18 little cake pop balls and let them cool down in the refrigerator for about half an hour.
While the cake pops are cooling, you can start melting the white chocolate coating. This works fastest if you chop the chocolate beforehand. You now attach the cake pop sticks by dipping the tip into the chocolate coating and then putting them into the chilled cake pop balls. Afterwards put them in the refrigerator for an additional 15 minutes.
Then heat up the chocolate coating again and mix it with the pumpkin orange food coloring. If the stick is fixated, you can start coating the cake balls by dipping them into the chocolate coating diagonally and turning them carefully. Immediately after put the pistachio on it and let it dry. Then you can use the dark chocolate coating to conjure up a face for the pumpkin cake pops and in the blink of an eye delicious pumpkin cake pops wink at your guests.
Marshmallow and chocolate marshmallow ghosts
Those, who would like to trick and treat their guests with extra insane decoration, might want to try creeping them out with little marshmallow ghosts. Just cut the marshmallows in a triangle shape, draw a little face on them and put them on a stick and in the glass. Matching finger food could be conjured up of chocolate marshmallows ghosts.
