Ghost Frosting Board HERO

I am really loving the latest trend of frosting boards! They are such a fun spin on grazing and dessert boards and you can really be creative with the overall design and theme of your board. You can make a frosting board to fit just about any party theme or occassion. They usually aren’t super costly and they feed a small crowd!

Check out the pumpkin shaped buttercream frosting board that we posted awhile back and while you’re here, be sure to browse the many dessert and meal charcuterie boards I have shared!

Frosting Board Supplies

Before you get to work on your ghost frosting board, you’ll need to gather your supplies. Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Frosting: Grab some white frosting. We used a regular store-bought tub of vanilla frosting. You will also want to pick up a tube of black cookie frosting to add the ghostly accents on your ghost.
  2. Candy Eyes: Get a pack of sugar candy eyes for your ghost’s face.
  3. Dipping Treats: You’ll want to have a variety of Halloween-themed and traditional foods to dip in the frosting, like cookies, Halloween Peepsgummy eyeballs, and, of course, candy corn.
  4. Large Board or Platter: Choose a board that’s big enough to arrange your dipping snacks and have some space for the creative part – frosting!

Time to add some sweet treats for dunking into the frosting! You can use your Halloween-themed snacks to add to the final look of your board. Get creative with candy eyeballs, Peeps, and cookies. A sprinkle of candy corn here and there is a great finishing touch.

Tips and Tricks

  • Get creative with your ghostly expressions. Feel free to make a different mouth than I did. Yours can be winking, have an open mouth, etc.
  • You can use edible glitter or dust to give your ghost a shimmering “glow.”
  • Feel free to make this board up to a few hours before your your party.

I hope this ghost frosting board makes a fun addition to your party menu! Be sure to browse the rest of the Halloween content on the site while you’re here. There is a a lot!
