  • Megan’s halloween cookie activity book is the perfect option for plan lovers- a step by step guide book to making eight different Fall themed cookies, whether you go solo or bring one of your favorite junior bakers into the kitchen with you. Choose a couple of your favorites or make all eight as a bountiful autumnal cookie harvest. Handcutting templates are included so there’s no need for any specialty cookie cutters! 

  • Another great thing about being a pre-planner is being able to tackle multi-day baking projects. These candy apple cupcakes are an apple vanilla cupcake with a cheeky swirl of salted caramel sauce topped with a gorgeous mirror glaze mousse.


    On day one you’re just making the mousse and letting it set. Then on day two you prepare the mirror glaze, stewed apples and cupcakes, and assemble your masterpieces. 

  • Master meringues with Jyoti’s mastering meringues activity book, and then make your own custom spooky shapes. We’re partial to adorable ghosts and candy corns, but once you have the fundamentals of meringue making down, the only limit is your imagination. Jyoti likes to put them on a paper straw or stick like this to make meringue pops that are easy for little hands to hold onto. 

  • Mix and match our vibrant, saturated gel colors to create a spooky colour palette for your Halloween treats. Baked into doughs and batters, mixed into buttercream or painted on the outside of your treats, there’s almost nothing these gels can’t do. Coordinating all your seasonal bakes with consistent colors? We see you A-types, and we celebrate you. Vibrant oranges, deep blacks, and witchy purples are a great place to start.
