Flip through the photo gallery to check out her treats, which you can easily replicate yourself with just a few ingredients.

Ghoulish Graveyard

What you’ll need: crumbled chocolate wafers, pumpkin shaped candy corn, vanilla wafers and chocolate frosting.

What to do: After covering her chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting, Erin crushed chocolate wafers and sprinkled them over the frosting as “dirt.” She set a pumpkin shaped candy corn on top and wrote “RIP” on the vanilla wafer before planting it in the “graveyard.”
