A few weeks into October, Wilton flew out a handful of us Mom Ambassadors for our second Wilton Mom ReTreat in Chicago, where Wilton Headquarters is located.  I had a blast working with the Wilton team and seeing some of my blogging peeps again!  There will be a few posts on my activities in Chicago, but the first post I wanted to focus on were some of the Halloween goodies we checked out.  We were also exposed to some of the fun Wilton Halloween Goodies during the first Wilton Mom ReTreat back in June (also included in this post).

One of the favorites among the Wilton team was the Dimensions 3D Skull Pan.  Not only did the team make cakes with it, they made a Bread Mold with Spinach Dip oozing out of the skeleton’s mouth.  How creative is that?  You’ll notice that I have a disgusted look on my face in the middle pic below.  That’s not because it tasted disgusting, but because it reminded me of Sam’s puking episode in the van on the way to our Family Reunion – lol!


Here are some other fun Halloween items and goodies we learned about!

The Fingers Nonstick Cookie Pan (you can also make breadsticks to dip in Marinara sauce)….yummy!

You can add some character to the drinks you serve at your work or personal Halloween Party by adding Halloween Drink Sprinkles and Halloween Garnish Picks.

Here are a few other fun Halloween Cakes and Cupcakes!

    Oh man, I can’t wait until I have a place of my own so I can throw one kick butt party!! Your face is priceless in the one photo xD

    I still wish we could have gotten together on your last trip to the windy city! That would have been so much fun 🙂

  3. Joann.com has the skull cake pan and the finger breadstick pan on super sale right now (Click the ‘sale’ tab, then ‘crafts’ then ‘cookies and cupcakes’ or whatever)… They might even have been in the clearance section (sale -> clearance -> cooking-type stuff category.) I think the fingers pan was under $5!
    Plus loads of other Wilton stuff on sale – 25% off, I think. Candy melts, gumpaste tubs, more Halloween cupcake liners/picks/silicone pans etc.

  4. Sounds like tons of fun! I would love to learn more about cake and decorating! Wish i could tag along to a Wilton Mom retreat!
