Halloween is every child and party planners favorite time of the year! Whether you’re entertaining or looking for a fun weekend activity, this roundup of unique Halloween baking ideas is sure to inspire. I reached out to the blogging community and was blown away with the number of awesome spooky creations bakers have come up with. Take your pick, there’s 67 of them!
I had so many baking ideas to go through, I had to come up with a sensible way to present them all. I’ve created image collages of the best blogger Halloween baking ideas. Each image is a link to the original recipe and tutorial. Ideas are grouped together into cupcakes, cookies, pastries, cakes and more…
Halloween Cupcake Ideas
Cupcakes are always a crowd pleaser, and there are so many creative ideas for Halloween cupcakes. My favorite has to the creepy tentacle cupcakes from Tikkido, something I have never seen before!
I’m also a huge fan of Killer Cupcakes from Mama Loves Food. There are plenty of ready-to-use cake decorations available like these little axes which make decorating cupcakes super simple.
Halloween Cookie Ideas
My three kids are hounding me to get baking Halloween cookies, and now I have all the inspiration and no excuse! They would definitely find these mummy cookies from Fabulous Habits hilarious. If there’s one thing sure to spook up your cookies it’s some googly eyes…
Speaking of googly eyes, I absolutely love these Easy Eyeball Chocolate Cookies from The Antony Kitchen. The cracked surface and dusting of sugar makes for the perfect creepy cookie!
Halloween Brownie & Bar Ideas
My kids would definitely enjoy making Frankenstein brownies although I’m not sure they’d end up as tidy as those offered by When is Dinner?. Personally I would love to get stuck into the cat silhouette brownies from Faeries & Fauna… they look delicious!
Halloween Pies & Pastry Ideas
Whether it’s sweet or savory, there is lots of fun to be had with pastry. These unique Halloween baking ideas are all adorable. but I think my favorite has to be the Jack O Lantern Cherry Pies from House of Nash Eats. SO many fun ideas!
Halloween Cake Decorating Ideas
I recently bought a bundt cake tray and am, yet to use it… I’m feeling a Halloween bundt glaze coming on! I have made a classic unicorn cake in the past and I love this Witch Unicorn Cake from Cupcake Project, perfectly executed!
Halloween Cake Pops, Truffles, Doughnuts & More
I had a few extra Halloween baking ideas which didn’t fit my categories above but these beauts are too good to miss! The adorable mini Frankenstein cheesecakes from Home Made Interest are a total win. And those Bat Doughnuts from The Simple Sweet Life are perfect!
Lastly, I can’t mention Halloween baking ideas without throwing back to the Night of the Living Gingerbread Cookies I made with Elsie three years ago. So much fun and a bit of a mess… in a good way!
Have fun with your Halloween baking. It’s the one time of year things can be a bit gooey and messy and you can pretend it was planned that way. And if you can’t find something to bake after these 67 baking ideas you are in trouble, ha!
