Wishing you all a Wicked Halloween!

Wishing you all a Wicked Halloween!

Have fun with these Spooky Spider cupcakes this Halloween, made easily but effectively with Wright’s Toffee cake mix they are simply decorated with liquorice and sweets and will have the whole family entering into the spirit at this fun time. Great to have by the door for trick or treaters who come knocking – they will not expect a creepy spider cake put in their hand!

Looking for something more savoury for your spooky soiree this Halloween?  How about Pumpkin Bread?  Our Pumpkin Bread Mix – creates the perfect Witches Finger’s Rolls as the pumpkin seeds within make the bread fingers look nice and authentically knobbly – they taste pretty good too!


How about these perfect Pumpkin Cakes?  Made with our clever Carrot Cake Mix – you can colour the icing if desired and make your own spooky decorations!


Carolann Cake Creations – made this heavenly Halloween cake with our Chocolate Fudge Mix!

Thanks Jackie for your Halloween Cake featured here. Made with our Madeira and delightfully decorated with matching cupcakes!


Vanessa provided these great cupcakes with our Chocolate Fudge Cake mix base but confirmed any of our cake mixes would work!


And there are more mummies – in the form of bread with these hot dogs, made with thin strips of our Premium White bread mix wrapped around them, proved and then baked for 15 minutes – look at the mustard blobs for eyes!

Thanks Lucy for your amazing Pumpkin Toffee apple cakes made using our Toffee cake mixclick here for her recipe.


Cupcakes or Muffins made from any of our Cake Mixes can be decorated agghmazingly! How about these with brain buttercream – scream!


Below are Linda’s spooktacular cake pops for Halloween and they just get better and better!

Any of our bread mixes can be turned into witches finger rolls and Sue managed twenty witches fingers from one 500g pack.

Armed with a few bottles of green food colouring (the gel or paste varieties work best), I dyed my dough and made 20 small log shapes, keeping them as thin as possible as they rise up. After proving for 25 minutes, flattened one end slightly and press a blanched almond into the end for a fingernail and using the dull side of a butter knife, make lines suggesting knuckles. Just before baking the fingers, I shaped them into a slightly bent shape so that they look like grabbing fingers. They baked in approx 15 minutes and when cooled I dribbled some red colouring around the nails and bases for that just severed look! Although they looked as though they would scare the dead back into their graves, they tasted nice! Sue, pictured here makes hers with a stinky cheese infusion!


Keeping it simple – cupcakes made with our Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix can be butter creamed and minimally decorated  yet still get the message over.

Thanks Edith for your Halloween Ginger cupcakes that are topped terrifically! Nice memories of your cauldron cake you cleverly made the other year too. Happy Halloween.
