If you weren’t on the East Coast prepping for the Hurricane Sandy “frankenstorm” this weekend– and our thoughts are with you, northeast caterers– you may have been serving up some Halloween-themed items at this past weekend’s events. And sure, you can find photos of adorable spooky cupcakes galore on Pinterest, but we wanted to see what caterers were using to elevate their Halloween parties to a crazy-cool level.
Halloween Dessert Degustation photos from an event by Studio NEON near Sydney, Australia — including white chocolate boules with hot raspberry sauce, transfusion cocktails, and even Gangnam Styling chefs (that’s how you know it’s a 2012 party!). Via Simon Food Favourites. Click through for video.
This fall dessertscape from Occasions Caterers in Washington, D.C. highlights pumpkin crème brûlée, spiced caramel, ginger cake croutons, and pumpkin seed brittle.
More from the Australian Halloween event– dark macarons and house-made marshmallows bring the Halloween palette to a higher level. “Pineapple marshmallows, balsamic vinegar strawberry pate de fruit and black sesame & charcoal powder macaron with pumpkin and blue cheese filling.” Via Simon Food Favourites.
One more from the Sydney event – “Apple pearls with moscato.” Via Simon Food Favourites. Click through for assembly video and more ideas.

White pumpkins convey an ethereal elegance– and they don’t just have to hold soups! Via The Knot.
Pretty sure this wasn’t from a Halloween event, but the clear tent and fall colors– along with the Instagram filter– makes it feel like the ballroom in a haunted mansion. Via Statigram.
Significantly less gross and a lot more fun, Executive Caterers in Mayfield Heights, Ohio shared their pumpkin guts mac and cheese.
But you still want some spooky-cute cupcakes? How are these?
Happy Halloween from Catersource!
