I know it is early but it is the first day of Fall (4:44 p.m. today according to my weather guy) and it is time for pumpkins, Halloween and my birthday. In addition it is my 600th post! I have a few molds for Halloween so I thought it might look better to group the different molds I have and give them a separate post.
Finally Wilton has come out with an Oreo mold. I just made the mummy head (with or without the white mask – you decide)
There are other molds available such as skull, spider and so on from spinningleaf.com. These molds have been very popular on my site because they are cute and easy to make, everyone loves them. See also Kitchen Gadgets – Mini Oreo Cookie Molds, Kitchen Gadgets – Oreo Cookie Molds, Chocolate Covered Oreo Easter Cookies, Football Oreos Covered in Chocolate for more ideas. This might be my “treat” for the Trick or Treaters this year 🙂
For the pumpkins, you need 4 colors of wafers; green for the stem, yellow for the face, orange for the pumpkin and brown to cover the cookie. I buy these at my local baking store but many craft stores carry them or order direct from Wilton.com or FancyFlours.com. You can buy the wafers in small or larger bags. You also need small paint brushes to do any detail in the mold. Then of course you need Oreo cookies 🙂 I believe this time of the year Oreo has a Halloween color with an orange filling.
Wafers needed for pumpkin mold! There are two facial expressions in this mold.
Chocolate bats with yellow covering. Tombstones with white detail and chocolate covering.
Candy corn needs four color wafers.
The ghosts are cute with chocolate features and white chocolate!
Chocolate transfers with pumpkins on a plain mold. You can also use these chocolate transfers on cakes and cookies. The sheets come from fancyflours.com and are about 11 x 15 inches.
