Halloween wedding cakes look amazing, most look like works of art with mini gourds, corpse brides, bats, gothic themes and of course pumpkins. With all the time that a cake like that takes to make it is not surprising that they can cost a fortune - the good ones certainly do, but there is an alternative.
You first need to buy a plain celebration cake, you can get these at most supermarkets and then decorate it yourself. It could be a simple ribbon around the cakes in halloween colors with a halloween cake topper. Simple to put together and it won't cost the earth.
You can also use mini gourds, real or fake. Place a few on the top of the cake - secure them with wire or cocktail sticks when you are happy with the way they look. You can make them sparkly by brushing with egg whites and sprinkling sugar or glitter on them.
Keep a look out for halloween stuff at local discount stores, you may find the perfect cake topper and there will be loads of bits to decorate the tables with.
You can also buy halloween cake decorations that you can use to decorate your cake, these look great on cupcakes.
If you are having cupcakes then a touch of sparkle on top of your frosting would look great. This set from Wilton has a variety of sprinkles - pumpkins, black, orange and purple sugars. You can also buy the sprinkles seperately and there are some very cute Halloween edible confetti too.
Lots more Wilton on Amazon products for you to look at.
