2020 has been the most unusual year and whilst we may not be able to have a party or take the children trick or treating this year, it doesn’t mean we can’t get creative at home and celebrate Halloween albeit a little differently. We have some fantastic ideas for easy Halloween bakes and treats that all the family can get involved with.
Bake your favourite cupcakes in some halloween coloured cases, we like orange, black, purple, red or green. There’s a lot of choice here at Cake-Stands including these Buffin Purple and Pinks Cases from NJ Products. If you are looking for something a bit quicker, you can always decorate plain, shop bought fairy cakes.
Then it’s time to get creative. Let your imagination run wild and decorate however you like. You could pipe orange, purple or green coloured buttercream, cover them in chocolate or model some 3D decorations out of coloured fondant. Spiderwebs, Witch’s hats or pumpkins - the possibilities are endless.
There are two simple ways to make cake pops. You could either use a silicone cake pop mould and bake your trusted sponge mixture in it to form the miniature spherical sponge cakes. The second way is to bake the mixture in a normal tin and once cooled, break it down into fine breadcrumbs. Then combine with some icing or buttercream so that the consistency changes into a mouldable mixture that you can roll into small balls.
This really simple idea is quite effective and perfect for this time of year. It’s so easy to do, the children will be able to do it without much intervention. You’ll just need some delicious Granny Smith apples, lolly sticks and your favourite chocolate. You could use dark, milk or white depending on the look you want to go for.
Another really simple idea. You could bake your own chocolate chip cookies or if you are short of time then just buy a packet of your favourites from your local store.
We hope you have a fun filled, happy and safe Halloween.
