It’s officially October! That means beautiful autumn leaves, crisp mornings and shorter days… For those who are fans of ghouls and costumes, October also means Halloween!
Whether you’re planning a themed wedding, hosting a quiet party for family or you’re preparing for the Halloween monster mash of the century, here at Cake Stands, we’ve come up with a list of essentials to help you celebrate all occasions in style!
If you’re a fan of scary movies or you’re looking for an excuse to don an elaborate costume, planning a Halloween party or even a wedding doesn’t have to be all spider webs and pumpkins!
Add a touch of class to your tables with the Emily Design Black Acrylic Round Cake Stand. This classy cake stand comes in a variety of sizes and would be the perfect centrepiece adorned with flowers, decorations or even fairy lights! This chic black colour scheme is easy to personalise, extremely versatile and would suit any Halloween occasion perfectly.
If you enjoy tricks more than treats and you want to satisfy your guests who might not have a sweet tooth, shop the Artesa Appetiser Two Tier Serving Dome. This effortlessly stylish set features two natural slate plates held on two tiers by a central black metal spindle complete with an acacia wood base and a cloche glass domed lid, making it the perfect centrepiece for any table and can be used to serve pastries, flans, cheeses and so much more!
If you’re looking for something a little smaller, you could try our Black Acrylic Pedestal Cake Stand. This cute little stand is perfect for showcasing cupcakes, muffins and other treats. (Or tricks!)
Halloween is all about having fun with your baking. Whether you’re making iced gingerbread biscuits, cupcakes or cookies, food colouring is a great way to add colour and flair to your delicious treats!
As Halloween is all about being spooky, you could try devilish reds to make spooky red velvet, add orange to icing and sponges for a pumpkin-inspired twist or even try blacks, purples and whites. The possibilities are endless!
It’s all in the little details! If you’re not planning on making a large cake, cupcakes can be just as delicious and creative! Whether you’re adding pumpkin spice, rolling out little fondant spiders or adding Halloween themed decorations, choosing the right cases can really complete the whole look.
For example, you could add chocolate cupcakes to our Pink And Purple Buffin Cases and top them with witch hats and black frosting! Or if you wanted something more traditional, you could try experimenting with green, orange and black food dyes and presenting them in our Buffin Greaseproof Cupcake Cases, which come in an array of colours!
