These wonderfully gruesome baking ideas come from dear Melanie von Detailiebe. Creepy mummies and ghost muffins haunt each other with incredibly delicious bat biscuits. Trick or Treat, everyone!

I already mentioned in the last post that I really like Halloween. So I was all the more happy to be able to create a small Halloween sweet table together with Party Princess. The focus should be on the cupcakes, in different Halloween designs. There were also biscuits in the shape of a bat and great decorations. I filled the milk bottle with Fassbrause and covered it with a black cat.
