In case you didn’t notice…it’s Halloween tomorrow. Which means that you’re either likely to be going OTT thinking we live in America (hello pumpkin carving!) or you’re making preparations to spend the night hiding in the back room, pretending you can’t hear kids knocking on the door. Again. And again. And again.
No matter which side of the spooky fence you sit on, the one thing we can all agree on is the best thing about any kind of ‘theme’ day is the food—and the lengths people and businesses will go to, so that our stomachs don’t miss out on the action.
This year, the much-loved bakery Van Wegen’s Bakery are stepping up to the plate in a big way and our mouths are already watering.
Not ones to do things by halves, this Mooloolaba bakery is selling a special coffin cake and we’re already betting they’ll be a sell-out. Small enough that you won’t feel guilty for not sharing, the coffin-shaped spelt mud cake is filled with caramel ganache and finished with a morbid R.I.P. script and a skeleton hand. We know they’re supposed to be scary, but they’re pretty darn cute, TBH.
Not a fan of chocolate? Who even are you? Thankfully, Van Wegen’s knows your kind, so they’ve also whipped up pumpkin profiteroles with a blood clot custard inside. And yes, we’re serious, although we’ve been promised no actual blood was used. Phew!
There’s not an endless supply of these ghoulish sweets, so if you have your heart set on surprising your work besties with the ultimate snack for that 3pm slump, either send Van Wegen’s a message on Facebook or give them a call first thing in the morning.
