Food and Drink
Fortune Cake (also known as “Halloween Cake”) was once the centerpiece of Victorian Halloween parties. In addition to serving as desert, it was fortune-telling device. Trinkets and charms were baked into cake. (The safety conscious wrap each trinket individually in wax paper to lessen chances of accidental swallowing.) A modern variation substitutes ice cream or ice cream cake as it is so easy to insert the treats.
