Though we don’t do Halloween quite like the Americans, there’s nothing we love more than baking some Halloween-inspired treats at this time of year. Whether they’re cupcakes with ghost faces, pumpkin-infused brownies or a massive chocolate mud pie with wriggly worms inside (don’t worry – we mean the sweets), then all is right with the world as far as we’re concerned.
And the kids will love it! Get them involved one Sunday in the run up to the spooky holiday with our range of Halloween baking goodies. We’ve got the Halloween Cupcake Kit, containing 48 orange and black cases with accompanying cake picks. Then, once you’ve made your scary creations, you can place them on the frightfully matching Happy Halloween 3-Tier Cupcake Stand.
We’ve got similar items which feature pumpkin motifs as an alternative – the Halloween 3 Tier Cupcake Stand and Halloween Pumpkin Faces Cupcake Kit, which are equally good choices. They’re a fantastic way to present your cakes and are especially good for guests. You could even pop your stand near the door for trick-or-treaters come 31st October.
If you’re stuck on what to make and don’t want to bake anything too difficult, simply make regular light and fluffy fairy cakes, then decorate the tops. All you’ll need is some orange and black food colouring for your icing, and perhaps some sugar-based illustrations to liven things up – think clowns, witches and mummies. Quite frankly, we like to take inspiration from other already beautifully made sweet treats. Our Halloween Solid Milk Chocolate Lollipops are heaven on a stick – you can use them for (yummy) inspiration as you bake!
Be sure to check out our fantastic range of cookware to aid you too – we’ve got cake trays, mixing bowls, utensils and more to see you through a baking session.
