Here's some stuff I threw together for a Halloween-themed birthday party:

Smashed skull cake:

The bone is 4 bars of white chocolate, melted into shape over a papier mache mold. The actual cake is regular Black Magic chocolate cake with a layer of strawberry jam, and the blood is a layer of strawberry jell-o that was set into the top of the skull so it would ooze out when cut into.

Gruesome shot of cake being cut:


Mummy mini pizzas:

Sorry, I was rushed for time and never got a picture of the finished pizzas, these were taken before baking. Olive, salami and cheese toppings.

Carrot hands and dip:

I cut the tips at an angle and dipped them into cream cheese to make the nails.

Eyball icecream:

I bought green food colouring for the pupils, but it turned out to be yellow, mislabeled by the factory... the kids didn't seem to mind though, I just called them "alien eyes" instead.

love the smashed skull and mini pizza ideas... are these in a recipe book or your own creativity?

Oh no, not at all.  They are all modified from things I saw on the internet. The skull cake was originally meant to be a modelled after this cake:
As you can tell it didn't quite work out that way, I didn't have a skull-shaped mold and had to improvise with papier mache and cover it with clingfilm to stop the molten chocolate from sticking, like this:

Everything was going great until the cooled chocolate stuck to the folds in the clingfilm and broke the chocolate cast 1 hour before the party was supposed to start. I modified the design a little to make it more messy and cartoony, and it didn't turn out too bad I think. Very different, though!
