What is a Halloween Frosting Board?

A frosting board is a spin off from the butter board recipes.  You place frosting in the middle of a cutting board or other board and then offer a variety of dippers to dip into the frosting.

I made my frosting into the shape of a giant candy corn, but you can create your own design.  

I know candy corn is controversial, and many people don't like the texture.  If this is you, then try freeze dried candy corn.  You get all the flavor in a crunchy candy.

For Christmas, try this gnome Christmas frosting board recipe.

  • Oreo cookies
  • Graham crackers
  • Cookies

Halloween Frosting Board Recipe Tips

Here are some tips for making a Halloween buttercream board:

  • The oil in the buttercream frosting may stain a wood cutting board.  You can put the frosting on parchment paper to prevent staining.
  • Choose 4-6 dippers for your frosting board.  You don't need to include every dipper mentioned above.  
  • Reserve some dippers to refill.  I also add more icing if people are still eating from it before the party is over.
  • Use store bought frosting in a fan or from the bakery for an easy Halloween treat for a party.  You can also make your buttercream from scratch if you desire.
  • I made a candy corn shape, but you can get creative and make a pumpkin or other shape.

Halloween Frosting Board Ingredients

Here's what I used to make my buttercream board:

  • White frosting
  • Yellow frosting
  • Orange frosting
  • Candy corn
  • Halloween Peep marshmallows
  • Cookies

How to Make a Halloween Frosting Board Recipe

Step #1

Use the white, yellow, and orange frosting to create a piece of candy corn on the tray.  I used a knife to spread the frosting, but you can pipe if you prefer.  

Step #2

Spread the cookies and other dippers around the candy corn frosting.

Step #3

Serve with a set of tongs for grabbing dippers and a spoon or butter spreader for serving the frosting.


I hope this Halloween frosting board idea inspires you to get creative.
