Planning a Halloween party doesn’t have to take a lot of time or cost a lot of money. For Halloween, the obvious focus for many kids is candy, but it would be nice to provide them with a little something that isn’t pure sugar. For this reason (as well as a few others we will explain), we recommend providing cupcakes to your guests, along with punch or whatever beverage you want to serve.
Cupcakes make your party planning easier because they are decorative, so they take care of both the food and a part of the decorations for your party. If you display them on a cupcake stand, which is a little tower that is made to display cupcakes, you will have an automatic centerpiece for the table, and the kids will love looking at it and choosing their own cupcake. You spend time making the cupcakes look great, so the stand idea allows you to make the cupcakes perform double duty. Nothing looks better than a tower of cutely decorated cupcakes.
Of course, if you don’t have the time to make and decorate your own cupcakes, you can buy them already decorated. There are many shops now that specialize in cupcakes. If you do want to make them yourself, you will obviously have more control over the type of decorations used. There are many little tricks and inexpensive Halloween cupcake decorations that you can use to make some great looking cupcakes. If you want something very easy, you can just use some sprinkles on top of some cupcakes. There are even sprinkles now that are in the shape of bats and pumpkins and black cats, so that would be an easy way to make them look even more special. And since the main theme for Halloween is candy, it would look great if you just stuck some Halloween M&Ms or other candies on top of the cakes. Nothing could be easier!
