Halloween is the time of the year to get creative. Dressing up in costumes, decorating your home, and coming up with a rousing joke for trick-or-treating is all part of the fun. It is also a great time to indulge in some delicious treats. Give our Halloween Baking Ideas a try this weekend.
Baking colourful, themed biscuits are the perfect family activity to kickstart your Halloween. Biscuits are really simple to make and decorating them is a great way to get the kids involved. Choose from pumpkins, ghosts, spiders, skeletons, and more staples of Halloween. Try this recipe to bake your own boo-tiful biscuits.
Whether your preference is sweet or savoury, baking delicious pies may be the perfect treat for you this Halloween. Fruity flavours such as strawberry and rhubarb are ideal for creating a sweet pie that gives off a bloody effect while an apple pie may be used to symbolise ghoulish slime. However, it may be too obvious to ignore how appropriate it would be to bake a delicious pumpkin pie. Carve your own little jack-o-lanterns on the top to create your own little piece of Halloween iconography. Follow this recipe to try your hand at making mini pumpkin and feta cheese pies.
Cupcakes are a fantastic party snack and are ideal for handing out to guests this Halloween. Like with our boo-tiful biscuits, decorating cupcakes is an activity the whole family can participate in. Discover how to make our personal favourite cupcake, the spiders web with cream cheese icing, here.
Delicious treats play a big role in many of the games that can be played at Halloween. One of our favourite Halloween activities is tying doughnuts on a string and racing to see who can eat one first without using their hands. Design your own Halloween themed doughnuts using this recipe and you can try this game at home.
