Martha by Mail ~ Halloween Marshmallow Cutters

A charming quintet of Halloween images were fashioned into copper cutters many years ago for the Martha by Mail catalog.  Meant to be used to cut out a slab of freshly made marshmallow into spooky shapes, many of us who own these cutters have used them successfully on cookie doughs.  An eerie tombstone marshmallow can be dropped into a mug of murky hot chocolate for an unexpected surprise.  A single pumpkin or a dozen of them can be cut & baked using a good cookie recipe and then iced in vivid shades of royal icing for gift giving.  How about using a crooked witch's hat to make fresh tortilla chip cutouts to dunk into blood-red salsa for your next party?  Whisper thin ghosts can be made using tuile batter if one traces & cuts a reusable pattern for some wickedly good fun.  Let's not forget about a spooky Halloween cat which can be used to embellish a delicious Fall pie with pastry cutouts.

However you use these wonderful marshmallow cutters, make sure you scare up some delightful treats that are utterly spooky, hair raising & frightfully good.  Enjoy.

This image from the catalog shows cut out marshmallows flocked with autumnal-colored fine sanding sugar.  Perfect for gift giving.

These cutters are stamped with the Martha by Mail bee & hive logo.

A Halloween tree is decorated with tuile ghost cookies (not from this particular set) and paper bat cones meant to hold candy.  A haunted village with a spooky graveyard adorns the rest of the side table. 

Collectible.  Beautiful.  Exclusively Martha by Mail
