It’s time for dusting off the cobwebs and carving out the pumpkins! Yes it’ that spook-tacular time of year - Halloween.
Our houses are full to the brim of sweet treats and all things scary. The kids are hyper with sensory overload- activities filled with oozing textures, creepy sights and luscious candy-filled scents.
Whether you make the kiddies costumes by hand, with endless tubes of toilet roll wrapped precariously around your bewildered 4 year old, or take a mad dash through the supermarket aisles at the last minute in order to conjure up a deathly look of evil in the form of polyester and nylon, in a state of sweaty panic, we all have too admit that we secretly love Halloween.
It is an age old tradition that people, of all ages seem to throw themselves at wholeheartedly (perhaps apart from the party pooper parent, left at home alone watching TV in the dark while the other half is out guising with the kids, avidly giving the ‘no one is in, no treats in this house, no pumpkins at the door’ signals.)
For those of us who are taking the chance to unleash our wild side in a suspect pair of stockings and paint our nails bright red or black, and give our skin a ghastly shade of death- you will know that it is a busy time of year. If one thing we at the Brilliant Bakers can do to help it's baking your sweet treats for your party.
Halloween is a time when families and friends get together for parties and gatherings, whether it's a spot of Trick or Treating with the kids or a party at home where the whole family can join in the fun, dressing up and playing a range of fang-tastic party games such as bobbing for apples and wrapping the mummy, and we at the Brilliant Bakers firmly believe that cake is not just for birthday parties, but for any kind of celebration!No party is complete without a crowd-pleasing centrepiece on the table - a Brilliant cake!
We offer a great variety of flavours including our deliciously light and fluffy Genoese vanilla sponge, a sumptuous chocolate fudge cake, or the latest addition to our cookbook and arguably the most appropriate for Halloween, a rich red velvet cake that is sure to please the vampire in every party guest along with a delicious gluten free vanilla so no witch or wizard is ever left without cake at the party.
New Halloween Cake Designs
At the Brilliant Bakers we pride ourselves on the quality of our cakes, baking each cake using traditional methods and fresh to order so that every tasty morsel is as tempting and decadent as it should be. This year we have added a few new exciting designs to our Halloween collection. We have added our Halloween Character Cupcakes and our Witches Cupcakes, which are fun and easy to hand out to little hands. Our comfort cake range we have added a delicious ‘pretty on the outside’ Halloween Comfort tin filled with all sorts of shocking chocolatey gruesomeness when opened. But don’t be fooled by it’s gory looks -it is a tin of sublime tastiness.
One of our most exciting designs this year is our Witches Cauldron cake. This fun design features a cauldron cake, with sugar bubbles of green potion and decoration glitter witches feet. The burning fire is made up of hand crafted sugar flames and matchmaker sticks.
