Who knew making scrumptious foods with a Halloween theme could be so simple? Forget trying to make all those complicated foods shaped like jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, skulls and more. Creating delicious Halloween treats is as simple as writing your name! There are many common foods you can write on to turn them into Halloween foods. Buy assorted colors of gel frosting and the rest is a breeze! Many people use gel frosting for decorating cakes but it can do so much more!
With small tubes of gel frosting you can make many different designs on foods. Use orange frosting to write “BOO” on chocolate brownies or chocolate chip cookies. Frost cookies with orange icing and draw a face on them with black gel. There are no limits to the foods, messages and images you can make. Use the gel frosting on cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cake squares, donuts or donut holes, dried fruits and even candy bars.
With gel frosting you can easily make simplistic Halloween images like ghosts, witches’ hats, bats, jack-o-lanterns, eyeballs, brooms, weird faces, Frankensteins, skulls and crossbones and much more. Some Halloween words or phrases you can spell out include “Happy Halloween”, “Get Out” or even “Look Behind You”. Write your own scary, funny or silly messages using the gel writing.
Instead of words and phrases, or common images, you can use the gel to make other designs. Draw dots, stripes, squiggly lines and other patterns. You don’t have to be an artist to use these simplistic images to give foods a Halloween theme. Just the use of certain colors with other colors, like orange and black, will give food the Halloween look without having to draw well.
Using gel frosting to make foods with a holiday theme doesn’t have to be strictly for Halloween. Write on foods for Christmas, Easter, July 4th, someone’s birthday and other occasions. In fact, it doesn’t have to be a special day to write “I Love You” or other messages on foods for your family. Write on oatmeal, French toast, pancakes and more.
Writing on cakes with gel frosting is nothing new. Use it in a different manner, though, and you can create fun Halloween foods. The gel doesn’t add any taste to the chosen foods but it does add a unique look to ordinary foods.
