Cookies Go Goulish
There is a wide spectrum with cookies. For those of us who do not know how to open a tub of Crisco, there is the pre-made tube variety, which now come in cute designs for all holidays. If you love decorated sugar cookies, you can get cutters and make all kind of cute shapes. I love the idea of using food coloring pens to write on cookie gravestones.
While you're whipping up royal icing, bust out a batch of scary edible spiders!
Cookie cutters go double duty when you use them to cut sliced cheese. Pair with crackers and you've got instant substance.
You can do some fun things with ice in a punch bowl.
Wash latex gloves then fill with water and freeze for mummy hands. Hang from a freezer shelf for a full day to get solid hands. Run warm water over them and peel off gloves for floating icky-ice! Make several as the fingers break off easily. Still, floating fingers are spooky too!
Make a ring of green or red punch and add spiders and glow sticks for an eerie looking bowl. Can you say dry ice? Go for it!
