Halloween is coming! It is the perfect time to make fun bakes inspired by this festive date.
Halloween's spooky traditions go back thousands of years. The origins of the revelry have been linked to the Celtic festival of Samhain, but the tradition of giving sweets away on Halloween didn’t begin until the 1950s, when sweets companies decided to get in on the trick-or-treating action.
As autumn rolls around and consumers crave warming drinks and treats, pumpkin spice is once again the flavour of the month.
About 40% of consumers buy fresh pumpkins to hollow out and carve to celebrate Halloween, but 60% of those admit they do not use the flesh, according to research by the stock cube brand Knorr and the environmental charity Hubbub.
Halloween has become a big money-spinner for retailers. An estimated 10m pumpkins are grown in the UK every year, 95% of which are hollowed out to create ghoulish lanterns.
If you’re in the mood for baking, some simple mini pumpkin pies can be a good idea to make for this season, which is a great way to use up your pumpkin carving leftovers. Also, toffee apple cake pops which are perfect for decorating with the kids however you wish.
You can make your favourite biscuit, candy or whatever sweet treat you like, using the flavours and colours of the season. In terms of colours we offer Vegetable Carbon Black, Beta Carotenes, Lycopene, Paprika, Anthocyanins, Orange Tones, Brown Tones, Purple Tones and lot more.
