Add even more fun to Halloween festivities for family and friends…for party hosts…for your workplace:
Make a Halloween cake with a NordicWare cake mold. It requires no more time and talent than pouring a cake mix batter into the mold.
The molds are artfully embossed, creating “cake sculptures” that need no added decoration. Of course, you can add your own touches with icing, edible glitter, spider candies, etc.
Beyond Halloween, the skull molds also work for El Dia De Los Muertos. In photo #4, one home baker created a classic decorated skull design.
NordicWare’s Halloween cake pans include:
Ghost centerpiece (photo #3)
Haunted manor centerpiece (photo #2)
Skull cakelets and centerpiece (can be decorated for Dia De Los Muertos—photo #4)
Tombstone cakelets (photo #1)
The pans have a nonstick finish that guarantees easy release, and a lifetime guarantee.
There are also cookie stamps: a set that includes a black cat, pumpkin and spider.
They’re available at many retailers including Williams-Sonoma, plus online at Amazon and NordicWare.com.
You can use any cake recipe you like. Particularly seasonal:
Dark chocolate (for the black spooky effect—add some black food color)
Red velvet cake (for the “bloody” effect)
White cake for ghosts and skulls
But sure, go for the brownie batter, the chocolate ghost with white icing, or other family favorite.
ADD A SAUCE
You can add a sauce for a more elaborate dessert:
Bourbon or rum sauce
Caramel sauce with scotch
Sabayon, the French version of zabaglione sauce
The best approach is to put the sauce on the plate first, then set the cake on top of it. You won’t cover up the design elements.
Have fun with it!
