A spooky-licious Halloween spread, brought to you by Star2. -- Yap Chee Hong/The Star
Star2 celebrates Halloween with a spread fit for a (Stephen) king.
HERE’S food that bites back! Over here at Star2, we like our themed parties and have gone all out with our dishes for Halloween. In the spread, we’ve got wickedly cute cupcakes, adorable pumpkins and babies good enough to eat, but there are also severed eyeballs, oozing beetles and bloody spiders.
At the end of the photo shoot, everyone descended on the food like ravenous zombies and (were)wolfed it all down in no time.
Hungry for more? Read our “Five food-related ideas for Halloween”.
Spookylicious Cupcakes by P. Yuhalini
These chocolate cupcakes, with butter icing and wicked fondant toppers, will be the talk of any Halloween party. And they will disappear in no time.
Lanced plump beetles (dates) oozing creamy entrails (orange-flavoured cream cheese) studded with mangled limbs (toasted walnuts). A sinfully luscious finger food that takes next to no time to prepare.
Crumbly Baby Mummies by Melody L. Goh
Mini frankfurters all wrapped up in shortcrust pastry aren’t just delicious, they’re cute-looking snacks too. Go on and pop these babies in your mouth.
Horrifically Healthy Pumpkin Patch by S. Indramalar
Kids will be scared out of their life by how healthy this pumpkin patch is. Adults will enjoy how well the pumpkin, cauliflower and tempeh balls go with the quinoa, mushroom, walnut and black sesame soil.
Nauseous Nibbles by Ann Marie Chandy
Got leftover crusty cake? Don’t let it just fester in a creepy corner of your fridge. Mash it up with some frightful frosting (OK, OK, don’t have to faint, butter icing will do) and make your own eerie eyeball cakepops, or fleshy fingers .... then use them as devious decoration on some foul fondant (all right already, fresh fondant, sheesh) for a gripping, gruesome, grave dessert. Repulsive? That’s the idea.
Yummy Mummy Lasagna by Ming Teoh
Pitch your fork into this unusual vegetarian Mummy Lasagna and you just might hear blood-curdling screams from the netherworld. But it’ll be yummy, no doubt about that.
Disembowelled Frankenspider by Jane F. Ragavan
Here’s one arachnid that won’t cause any phobias. It’s a cheese and garlic loaf with eight leggy breadsticks and a built-in cavity for Spidey’s innards aka a chilli-cheese dip. Being caught in his web would be a pleasure.
Pumpkin Sours by Lee Mei Li
Turn Halloween into a creepy-cute affair with these itty-bitty juicy (but sour) clementine-turned-miniature pumpkins.
