Trick or treat, it’s time for Halloween! And you know what that means – Halloween costumes, fun parties, and of course, sweet treats! But before you go to your local supermarket and start hoarding all the lollies and chocolate you can find, think about this for a second… are those really the only choices you have?
The short answer is no, and here’s why – themed cupcakes are so much better than your average packaged lolly. They’re better for your teeth, can be decorated, and can be gobbled right away! So, if you’re prepping for a Halloween party for kids or adults, here are some deliciously spooky cupcake ideas perfect for the upcoming scary season:
1. Good ol’ Halloween-themed cupcakes
Think spiders, witches, monsters, bats, skeletons, ghosts, and pretty much everything black, green and orange! You can’t go wrong with the Halloween classics. Whether that’s green-coloured icing, or skeleton hands coming out of a cupcake, classic Halloween icons will surely give your party the scary kick that it needs. You can get super creative with these through cupcake decorating, like how we did with our Count Gabbula's Halloween Spider Cupcakes, or simply stick to orange pumpkin-flavoured cupcakes – the choice is totally up to you. Either way, no one can resist a nod to the classics. Check out our Halloween cupcake range for some classic Halloween deliciousness!
2. Popular characters but creepified
Everyone loves the minions, but creepified versions of the lovable minions would be even better to get everyone into the Halloween spirit! There are plenty of characters out there that you could turn into more grotesque - yet still delicious - versions of themselves, including Disney characters, superheroes, fairy tale characters, or even an evil-looking Spongebob set! Inspiration is out there waiting for you.
3. Animal cupcakes
Animals aren’t exactly scary (well, not all the time), but they’re fun and festive – especially for kids’ parties! Our Zoo Animals collection is a great hit with the kids, and can also quickly be “creepified” just like popular characters! From lions and elephants to monkeys and zebras, the kids won’t wait to munch on these! And of course, we can’t forget the infamous black cat…
4. Glammed up cupcakes
Who says Halloween can’t look pretty? Glammed up cupcakes may not be scary, but they sure are festive. Take some inspiration from our Rainbow Cupcakes, and turn that into beautiful cupcakes that glimmer in the Halloween moonlight. Or take our Classic Elegance range and create bouquets of flowers fit for the grave. Halloween doesn’t always have to mean scary and grotesque, it can also be eerily beautiful.
