What do you put in Halloween treat bags? At Bakell, we adore a creepy cupcake. The good news is that there is no need to sculpt your baked goods by hand like they used to do in the 80s - Bakell has a great variety of Halloween-themed cake molds that are shaped like skulls, scary ghosts and critters, and other spooky things.
You can even push out the boat and create glittery monster cupcakes if you are catering for a younger crowd who are not quite ready for the scarier end of the culinary spectrum. With our selection of edible glitters there is no end to the magic you can make!
TOP TIP: Our 100% food-grade silicone cupcake molds are super versatile. You can also use it to create awesome fondant treats, candies and even candles! Just remember to keep your baking and crafting molds separate so everything stays hygienic while you make your creative dreams come true.
Spine-Chilling Cocktails & Drinks
For more grownup parties, a nice cocktail or two adds a classy twist to the conventional line-up of welcome drinks. In this blog, we share our recipes for a Spooky Orange Swizzle, Wilted Rosé Punch, Trick or Tequila Limeade, and the always fabulous Black Magic Martini. It may sound complicated, but it is actually fairly simple and makes a big impression with holiday guests.
TOP TIP: If it is chilly outside, which it is fairly likely to be in fall, serving something like spiced butter coffee is a nice idea. This warming recipe is a game-changer! It is unbelievably delicious served with everything from gingerbread spooks to savory dishes like bloody tomato soup and skull-and-crossbones shaped toasted cheese sandwiches.
