Make Some Spooky Baked Goods for Halloween

If you'd rather bake and decorate cookies, cupcakes, or cake pops than make other types of Halloween treats, this article will provide pictures of baked and beautifully decorated Halloween treats, along with links to the instructions. Just bag one of these baked treats in clear cellophane tied with a length of fall-colored curly ribbon, and you'll have a treat that you'll love to give. For a party, arrange a group or plate of your decorated masterpieces and display them as a centerpiece.
