Wishing you all a Wicked Halloween!
October 23, 2020
Well – it looks like a Halloween at home this year – the children will probably not be going out trick or treating but Halloween can still be fun with a few home treats made easily with our brilliant bread and clever cake mixes.
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!
Why not surprise everyone with a piñata type cake – fill with sweets you would usually hand out at Halloween and cover it with fondant or butter cream for a sweet surprise? Here is one by The Baking Nanna made with our Chocolate Fudge cake mix – I know the buttercream on the finished cake is just fabulous but you get the gist – simply cut the centre of the baked cake out with a round cookie cutter or wide mug & fill with sweets prior to decorating.
Looking for something more savoury for your spooky soiree this Halloween? How about creating Witches Finger Rolls with our bread mix? Our Premium White creates the perfect Witches Finger’s Rolls as you can roll your dough with this mix quite thinly otherwise they will start to rise and fatten up!– they taste pretty good too!
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!
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 – just Eerie-sistible!
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), Sue dyed her dough and made 20 small log shapes, keeping them as thin as possible as they rise up. After proving for 25 minutes, she flattened one end slightly and press a blanched almond into the end for a fingernail then using the dull side of a butter knife, make lines suggesting knuckles. Just before baking the Witches Fingers, Sue shaped them into a slightly bent shape so that they look like grabbing fingers. They baked in approx 15 minutes and when cooled, she 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!
Another Chocolate Fudge piñata cake made by Sandy with our Chocolate Fudge cake mix & filled with sweets for a real surprise inside for her friend. What a wonderful gift – thanks Sandy.
Keeping it simple – cupcakes made with our Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix can be butter creamed and minimally decorated yet still get the message over.
As Halloween is nearly here, it seems that cauldron cupcakes keep dropping in, there’s the traditional and liberal use of black food colouring on everything edible and no shortage of ideas from Edith with her cauldron cake below & her Ginger cupcakes that are topped terrifically!
‘Witch’ cupcake is your favourite ?
Thanks to the clever Cakey Goodness people – Master of Bun! For these Spider Web/Halloween Buns. There is an easy step by step recipe on the link here they are made with a mix of our Premium White & Ciabatta mixes.
This cake – yes CAKE! Was inspired by the 2018 Halloween movie and that Mask! Made with our Chocolate Fudge & Orange cake mixes with a white chocolate vanilla filling and strawberry. Congrats go to Sugarliciouscakes for your work of art!
Clever this Halloween Pizza – a nice thin crust formed from our Premium White Pizza Recipe, you will need thickly cut Baby Bel or mozzarella cheese to create the ghosts with peppercorns for eyes.
We are loving Elizabeth’s Halloween offerings her Carrot Cake Pumpkins look pleasantly plump and totally adorable.
Elizabeth also created these Toffee Cake ghosts with our mix!
More cupcakes made with our clever Carrot Cake Mix – spookily topped with a spider or an iced on spiders web.
Thanks to Hannah on Instagram @whatcanhannahdo for such a perfect idea ahead of Halloween.You should yield 8 perfect little pumpkin rolls ? from one 500g pack of our Premium White – you are all very welcome!
Alison decided to try the seasonal pumpkin shaped loaf that she had seen so much of recently where you tie the dough with string and it swells to shape itself like a pumpkin. Alison used our Cheddar Cheese & Onion bread mix for this bake, saying it was “a little magic with some string and a bit of cheese on top!” Thanks so much.
Thanks for all your agghmazing ideas – keep them coming!
