Spooky Cake Hand

Benji kept asking me to make a special dessert for Halloween. After checking numerous cookbooks and even searching the web for ideas, we came up with the spooky hand idea ourselves. All it takes is:

  • Reeses peanut butter wafer sticks
  • vanilla frosting
  • green food coloring
  • Milk Duds
  • red gummies
  • Two Hostess Twinkies

Max cut up the peanut butter sticks into appropriate finger sizes. I cut a Twinkie in half for the hand, and cut the ends off another for the severed wrist. Nat colored the frosting green, and then we frosted the whole mess. I drew knuckles with a sharp knife, cleaning the point after every mark. Max then places Milk Duds for the fingernails, and then I ripped up some red gummies for the blood drops!


Very cute! My autistic son loves to bake, especially sweets. He would love to do this.
