Welcome to the first baking round-up! I am so excited to be joining the BritMums round-up team to bring you the most divine bakes from bloggers in the UK. I will be showcasing a variety of baked treats that will include traditional bakes as well as gluten-free ones so there really will be something for everyone.
I love Halloween treats and as my first round-up falls on Halloween weekend it seemed like the perfect place to start. This month I have found the tastiest, spookiest bakes along with some delicious ways to use up any leftover pumpkin that you may have!
So without further ado, prepare to get hungry, here are my favourite Halloween bakes!
Red Ted Art has created these fun Frankenstein Halloween Cookie Pops. These cute little Frankenstein cookie pops will go down a treat with any trick or treaters that may come knocking!
Let Kids Be Kids shows us three ways to make some spooky ghoul bakes from easy but extremely effective ghost cupcakes to ghost biscuits. This post also shows you how to double up your Christmas bell biscuit cutter as a ghost shape cutter!
A Strong Coffee has taken cake pops to the extreme for these spooky edible eye balls! These cake pops will leave you with an eerie feeling that something is watching you!
Now onto three recipes that will fill you with ideas on how to use up the flesh after carving out your pumpkin. The flesh is too good to go in the bin, so check out these delicious ideas!
Taming Twins has created this exquisite Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake. If you are hosting an adult Halloween party or simply love pumpkin this cake will certainly be a showstopper!
The Gluten Free Alchemist shows us that even if you follow a gluten-free diet you do not need to settle for second best. This is my ‘go to’ free from blog and has the same ‘no waste’ ethos and her Pumpkin, Sultana and Chocolate Chip Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting is the perfect way to use any leftover pumpkin flesh!
The Free From Fairy, my other ‘go to’ free from blog, tempts us with a Very Freefrom Pumpkin Pie. This pumpkin pie has a tropical coconut twist when combined with the autumnal pumpkin flavours you have a free from tart that you really can indulge in!
Now back to some more spooky bakes.
Mummy Mishaps takes the piñata to another level with her Pumpkin Piñata Cake. With this piñata you can literally eat the lot! When slicing into this Halloween pumpkin cake everyone will be amazed at what is hidden inside!
Julie’s Family Kitchen has combined two of my favourite flavours to create her Chocolate Orange Halloween Biscuits. These make both a tasty treat but also a fantastic activity to get the children baking over the weekend!
Blue Bear Wood share a truly unique Spooky Halloween Cave Cake. This cake really does allow your creative side to shine. Once you have the cave stature you can make it as spooky as you can imagine, or just give the children the sweets, treats and icing and let their imagination take over!
When it comes to Halloween bakes they do not all need to be sweet. I had great fun with the twins creating some fun Spider Web Pizzas and if you want to have healthy treats alongside the naughty ones have a look at my Fruity Halloween Treats.
My next round-up we will be at the end of November, so as you can probably guess, it will be a festive one! I will be bringing you the best Christmas bakes around. If you have any Christmas bakes that you would like to put forward for me to consider featuring in my next round-up you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, Tweet me at @k_phillipson or even better pop over to my Baking Round-Up page and add it to the linky!
Hope you have a great Halloween and I look forward to bringing some festive cheer to your bakes next month.
