Black and White Treats Table

Hosting a Halloween party is even sweeter with these elegant ideas for a dessert table display.

By: Glory Albin

Materials Needed:

  • 3-5 cake stands (varying colors and sizes)
  • 2 apothecary jars
  • 2-3 candy dishes
  • silver candy
  • black and white candy
  • Halloween cookies
  • Halloween cupcakes
  • pumpkins, spiders and other spooky accessories

Choose Black and White

Create the display by mixing up cupcakes, cookies and candies, all tied together by their black and white color scheme. Royal icing spider webs add an elegantly spooky feel to the cupcakes. To make royal icing decorations, simply pipe your desired design (using thick royal icing) onto parchment paper, and allow to fully dry. Royal icing transfers are very delicate, so be sure to make more than you'll need.
