Halloween Bake Sale Ideas

Having a bake sale with Halloween-themed cakes is great fun

Who wouldn’t want to sample an eyeball cupcake or spider bite?

While a normal bake sale will sell normal cakes, it should come as no surprise that a Halloween themed sale will need to sell some more unusual and creepy delicacies. If you want to be a success, and make your event more popular by offering one of a kind creations like wandering vampires, spider bites or eyeball cupcakes.

Thanks to websites like Pinterest you’ll never need to worry about lack of creativity in what you sell. Here are some of the best baked goods that you can make at home for the holiday:

If you’re aren’t a master baker fear not! There are all sorts of easy recipes you can make for this holiday. Some of these ideas like a Halloween Punch or Easy Halloween Pretzels don’t even require turning on the stovetop.

Of course, if you are an experienced baker this is your time to shine! Decorating cakes is another way to turn that simple sponge into a Halloween work of evil art. Spiders and webs can be a popular option for decorating cakes, or you could make it bleed using red food coloring in the white icing, with a vampire scene on the top. Or how about using the top of the cake as a graveyard, complete with crumb soil and cookie tombstones? You’re only limited by your own imagination here.

Ice pops are popular too and can make a nice smaller treat for kids. So why not make pops from cake crumbs, mixed with buttercream frosting, and coated in melted chocolate with scary designs on the outside? Or even strawberry jelly to run out when you bite into it. Or you can turn those chocolate cupcakes into miniature graves, complete with your tombstone cookies, or wrap the tops in vanilla “bandages” with two mummified eyes peeking out from the folds.

And then you have the whole pumpkin range of baked goods to play with, which is a much cuter option. Either in the form of traditional pumpkin pies and flans or with scary and spooky decorations that make them even more freakishly frightening than ever.

No matter what your cause, the Halloween bake sale is a great way to raise awareness and money for a worthwhile cause. Not only is it a fun way to connect with others, but it can make a different positive change in your community.
