While Halloween typically revolves around finding the best costumes, creating some DIY decorations and throwing a October 31 party, this year is probably going to feel a little different. As things currently stand, coronavirus restrictions mean you can't meet up with more than five other people at any one time - which means house parties are probably off the cards. But that doesn't mean you still can't celebrate Halloween.
Instead, why not use this year as an opportunity to bake a Halloween cake? These suggestions make perfect centrepieces at a dinner party (which, as things stand, are currently allowed with a handful of people), or even just because you fancy baking. Because honestly, who needs a genuine reason to get on board with a cake?
These Halloween cakes are equal parts trick or treat, and range from easy to hard. So whether you fancy a Halloween cake recipe inspired by spiders or ghosts; witches or pumpkins - or even an incredible Frankenstein creation, we've got you covered.
And let's not stop at the Halloween cakes. How about Halloween biscuits? Pumpkin carving ideas? Even cute Halloween lights to decorate your interiors with? The options are endless. Just because you might not be trick or treating or scaring your friends with your mega outfit ('I'm a mouse, duh!'), you can still mark October 31st with a nice bite.
