October is here! The month when pumpkin fever takes over my baking, everyone starts putting the heating on, and bakers around the country make mincemeat and pudding ready for Christmas. It is also the spookiest month of the year... because it all ends with Halloween of course! Suffice to say my lustings this month are half Halloween related, and half Great British Bake Off related. Every time they make something on that show, the special equipment needed to make it suddenly sells out everywhere! I hope you all have a fabulously scary time celebrating and baking for Halloween, maybe some of the below items will help. It also may be a scary prospect attempting some of the technical challenges on GBBO, so good luck to you if you try!
3-D Great Pumpkin Bundt Pan Set
With this pan you can create a giant pumpkin shaped cake, I absolutely love this! You could get some brilliant results if you're creative when decorating the cake.
Half Sphere Silicone Moulds
Sew White £6.00
Episode 8 of the Great British Bake Off brought us the technical challenge Chocolate Teacakes. This is the mould you will need to copy the GBBO bakers and make your own! Really great price as well I think.
Halloween Boo Cupcake Kit
Planet Bake £9.95
This spooky little kit is a perfect and easy way for adding a scary touch to 24 homemade cupcakes to serve to your Halloween party guests.
Make Your Own Gingerbread House
They made gingerbread structures recently on GBBO, and if you want to do the same, this looks like a brilliant kit. Seen as it's not Christmas yet, make it into a haunted house for Halloween!
NB. I just want to make note of the fact that I don't get paid to recommend any of these items. They are just things I like or own, or in most cases, would love to own!
