1. The ghostly meringue
Why should Christmas get all the meringue love? Meringues will always look a little otherworldly, so if you’re looking for a fun Halloween recipe project, mini meringue ghosts will always go down a treat with kids – young and old. Bonus points if you serve them on top of a berry tart for a Tarantino-esque dessert.

2. The gory red velvet cupcake
Not that we need an excuse to eat red velvet cupcakes, but they seem especially fitting for the lazy person’s Halloween celebrations thanks to their bloodied colour. Dot the icing with splashes of more red colouring for an extra gory effect if you like.
