Trick-Or-Treat! Are These Bakes A Trick Or A Treat?
It’s the spooky season as Halloween is just around the corner! Halloween is the favourite holiday for some people (not only children!) for being one where we can dress up in spooky costumes and also get to eat tasty treats. Also known as “All Hallows’ Eve”, 31 October is celebrated for being the eve of All Hallows’ Day, and it was said that the line between our world and the afterlife was especially thin around All Hallows’ Eve – contributing to the spooky, ghostly atmosphere that we celebrate and love Halloween for today!
Popular Halloween traditions include wearing costumes (disguises so as not to be detected by the spirits – the creepier the costume, the more you fit in), pumpkin carving (from the Irish lore of Stingy Jack) and haunted houses (hands up for those who attend USS’ Halloween Horror Nights every year!)
Of course, not forgetting the signature Trick-or-Treat! Although we may not be able to go house-to-house to knock on every neighbour’s door this year, here’s introducing some ‘Tricks’ bakes and some ‘Treat’ bakes to spice up your Halloween celebrations!
This dark theme of @twoambakes is perfect for Halloween! Featured here is their Charcoal Cheese Gateau, complete with spooky, googly eyes! Will it be a trick or treat?
@dee_bakes offers customised cakes and this Shrek Butt cake is right down our ‘Trick’ alley! If you don’t get to dress up for trick-or-treating this year, dress up your cakes!
