Our Top Ten Halloween Baking Ideas

09 Sep 2019

 

If you're hosting a Halloween party this year no one can resist adorably spooky (or downright gory) baked treats. So get yourself a grande pumpkin spice latte and get in the kitchen because you’re going to have a scary time choosing which of these Halloween baking ideas to make.

 

1. BLACK EVERYTHING

Ultra black cakes and buttercream seem to be the trend this Halloween! Get that pitch black colour naturally (without the green um....after effects) thanks to our high-quality black cocoa. The sprinkle mix used in the centre cake is the Sprinkle Pop Monster Mashup sprinkle mix.

          

 

2. MERINGUE GHOSTS

Not only are meringue ghosts super adorable, they are probably the easiest Halloween treat to whip up - and they take a plain black cake to stylishly spooky in an instant!

          

 

3. ALMOST CHRISTMAS GINGERBREAD MEN

If you're anything like us, by the end of October we're itching to turn on the carols and dig into the gingerbread. Make these Halloween themed 'mummy' gingerbread men to tide you over a little longer until Christmas baking becomes socially acceptable. You can find our gingerbread men cookie cutters online or in-store.

          

 

4. UNICORN CAKES MEET HALLOWEEN

We love a twist on the classic unicorn cake and we are digging these Halloween themed unicorn cakes! (okay technically one is a witch and another isn't even a cake but we still love them!)

          

 

5. HALLOWEEN CAKE POPS

Cake pops were MADE for Halloween! They can be almost anything - an eyeball, a little round mummy, adorable bats...okay technically the bats are truffles but pop them on a lollipop stick and ta-da cake pops!

          

 

6. MARSHMALLOW MAKEOVERS

Marshmallows are both delicious and the perfect blank canvas for creative Halloween treats. Play it simple and just use one of our edible markers to make cute little ghosts, perfect for hot chocolate, or dip them in chocolate and cover them in sprinkles. We love the Frankenstein's Monsters ones below! All you would need is some candy melts, some sprinkles, and that trusty edible marker again. Oh and don't forget the edible googly eyes.

         

 

7. CREEPY CUPCAKES

Who doesn't love cupcakes! They are the perfect foundation for creating dozens of creepy creatures. These are just three of our faves, varying from super easy (hello sour gummy worms!) to slightly more involved (but still super easy - we promise!). 

       

 

8. HEALTHY OPTIONS

It's never been more important to teach our kids about healthy balance when it comes to food, so make sure you have a few healthy treats to hand out with all those Freddos! 

          

 

9. WITCHES FINGERS

 Grab yourself a bag of almonds and you're halfway to some pretty brilliant looking witches fingers - whether they are sugar cookies, pretzels covered in candy melts, or bread sticks.

         

 

10. GET BRAINY

Get brainy this Halloween with brain cakes, cupcakes, and rice krispy treats! All of these smart little recipes are super easy, the cupcakes are as simple as piping your buttercream in little squiggles!
