No Halloween celebration is complete without the treats. But there’s no rule that says they have to be packed with sugar and artificial ingredients. Don and Susie Morris, the founders of Donseumor, a European-inspired bakery in Alameda, California, take a less-is-more approach to making cookies, using wholesome preservative- and additive-free, all-natural ingredients to produce buttery, light, artistic cookies and cupcakes. And for anyone interested in making some unique, wholesome Halloween treats this year, here’s a recipe they sent us for delightful Witch’s Hat Cute Cakes, which are soft and moist, and made with the finest quality all-natural ingredients.
Inspired by the marriage of cupcakes and petits fours, the yummy, adorable and fun-to-eat Witch’s Hat Cute Cakes are sure to pacify even the most discriminating of scary monsters likely to show up at your door later this month. Available nationwide in stores such as Whole Foods Markets and Andronico’s, the Donsuemor brand of cookie has drawn wonderful reviews from The New York Times and Fine Cooking.

Frost the Cute Cakes with a layer of orange frosting. Next, in a medium sauce pan over medium heat, gently melt the shortening and the chocolate chips.
