Why The Food Network Loved This Metro Phoenix Bakery’s Spooky Desserts

It was a Wednesday afternoon, just days before the holiday weekend, and final preparations were being made for what the owners of Spooky’s Swirls Bakery in Chandler call “the biggest day of the year.”

This wasn’t Santa’s workshop and it wasn’t a countdown to Thanksgiving either. It was less than a week until Halloween, and Lola Forbes and Chris Szydlowski were busy baking as many terrifyingly sweet treats as they could fit in the oven at their bakery and the Horror and SciFi Prop Museum (more on the spooky-sweet combination later).

Szydlowski answered the door in a T-shirt emblazoned with the logo of the classic horror movie “Carrie” (1976), and upbeat music blared from the shop where Halloween decorations covered every surface and the delicious aroma of freshly baked cupcakes from the oven filled the store.
