These Halloween-Cake ideas are perfect if you don’t mind spending a wee bit of money and really want to go all out. You can buy a Nordic cake pan and some decorations which can really help you create some wonderful looking Halloween-cakes. Have you ever thought about making a Haunted House cake?

Halloween Cupcakes & Treats

Nordic Ware Pro Cast Castle Bundt Pan

It's the perfect base for a Haunted House or Castle and could be used for birthday parties throughout the year and is suitable for making castles for both boys and girls!

You could even make a Christmas Snow Castle which would make a nice change from the traditional Gingerbread House. Customers who have purchased this Bundt pan say that the castle looks wonderful when baked and highly recommend it. The cake pan is made from a heavyweight cast aluminum which provides balanced cooking and produces moist cakes.

The interior of the pan is non stick and the outside has a heat reflector which allows for even browning. The superior quality of this cake pan allows for all the details to be transformed into the cake itself. All you have to do is to start decorating.

Other similar cake pans that can do double duty for a Halloween-cake include the Nordic Ware Pro Cast Pirate Ship Cake Pan and the Nordic Ware Fairytale Cottage.

Plus you just have to take a peek at the Nordic Ware Backyard Bugs Pan! This would be another cake pan that you could use many times throughout the year. One of the nicest features about this cake bug pan is that you can use it over and over again. For Halloween you can turn the bugs into creepy insects for example.

Then for a birthday you can make the bugs fun and adorable! As one customer noted this is a cake pan that you will want to pass on someday.

It comes with a lifetime warranty and bears the quality that you have come to recognize from Nordic Ware.

Here are a few samples of what customers are currently saying about this Backyard Bugs Pan:

  • I study insects for a living and one of my colleagues made me birthday cupcakes with this cake pan. They were so adorable!
  • Apparently the pan comes with its own cake mix recipe that works really well with the pan and also tastes delicious!
  • This is one of the funniest pans I have, the kids love them and they are perfect for individual sized cakes.
  • EVERYONE love these little bugs that come out from this pan!
  • The details on the cakes are beautiful!

Another important feature to note about this cake pan is that it is made in the US and not in China, another point which many customers really liked. A similar pan to this is the Nordic Ware Pro Cast Zoo Animal Muffin Pan. This is another cake pan that has received great reviews and produces muffins with lots of detail.

Also look for small sugar decorations in various Halloween shapes such as ghosts, witches and pumpkins. This can easily be placed on top of cupcakes or muffins to add a quick Halloween touch.

If you don’t want to buy a new cake pan you can still make a great Halloween cake by using cake toppers.

For example you can purchase a Pirates of the Caribbean Cake Topper or a Batman Cake Topper.

It is quite easy to match the cake topper to your child’s costume in most cases.

Buying Tips for Halloween-Cake Pans

The average price for a cake pan is going to be around $20 so you really want to look for a cake pan that can you can use for more than just Halloween. Try to choose one that you can use at Christmas time, for parties and special occasions and of course your kid’s birthday’s.

Buying a quality pan such as the Nordic Ware ones will save you money in the long run. These pans are made to last and by following the ‘care’ instructions they will last a life time.

Here are a few cake making tips that I found for you:

  • Preheat your cake pan while preheating your oven, and then spray it once it is hot.
  • Only fill the cake cavity 2/3 full.
  • Use a 375 F oven with a shorter baking time to see as much detail as possible.
  • Cool cakes in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out.
  • To clean your pan rinse while the pan is hot and set it inside the cooling oven to dry.
