It's coming up to that time of the year so this year I'm planning ahead. At Kiwicakes we have a huge range of 125 Halloween items to view our range click here
My personal favourite is the Haunted House cupcake stand This would be great with adult cupcakes using these shot tops. Shot tops are a fun shaped Pipette that holds a sauce or liquor, that can be squirted in to the cupcake just before it's eaten. I'm thinking tequila would be nice, perhaps a margarita flavoured cupcake.
For the children how about some decorated cookies, we have cookie cutters and a large range of icings and colours.
Wilton have a good range of chocolate moulds for Halloween and where's just a small sample.

These Unicorn Chocolate pops were such fun to make, and despite their look, are actually quick to make. I used the Wilton round cookie pop pans, to pour compound chocolate melts in to, positioning lollipop sticks in the cavity provided. These could also be made using cookies (however the particular sticks I used were not intended for oven use). As chocolate shrinks when it cools, metal pans make great chocolate moulds instead of the usual plastic moulds.
To the centre of the pop I added a 9cm white circle of fondant
Using a smaller diameter round cutter, I cut some pale pink fondant in to a circle, then used the same cutter, to cut away part of the circle, leaving the nose shape. I indented the nose and eyes with the back end of my paint brush.
To make the horn, I took two pieces of yellow fondant and twisted them together
Once twisted together I flattened the end that was to attach to the head and tucked it under the white fondant layer, and secured with edible glue
I used a small piece of fondant to suppor the horn until it dried
I painted the horn gold using edible gold lustre dust mixed with rose spirit
The mane was simply free form pieces of rolled fondant cut with the scissors
I used a knife to indent lines on the pieces of mane. The small stars were cut using plunger cutters and were secured with edible glue. The eyes are tiny balls of fondant dropped in to the eye cavity, to which I'd added a dot of edible glue. The tiny white dots of fondant are added afterwards. The ears are cut free hand from fondant, they are so small, no pattern is really needed. This pan set can of course be used to make lots of other fun critters
