This year, we’ve got the ultimate showstopper for your Halloween celebration: mini skull cakes! Our Nordic Ware Mini Skull Cakelet Pan helps you to bake individual-sized sweet treats in the shape of a spooky, grinning skull, which is guaranteed to start some conversations among your guests.


For a creative way to decorate the miniature cakes, we turned to Rachael Koenig of the online shop and design studio Shore Society. Her intricate piped design, with its clever nod to the Mexican Día de los Metros holiday, takes the dessert to the next level. Check out her video tutorial to see how it comes together (pro tip: it starts with outlining the facial features first).



Break out your go-to cake recipe, preheat your ovens, and start baking! Your Halloween celebration just became legendary.
