Halloween at Hummingbird Bakery
Trick or treat your boo to some ghoulish new Halloween cupcakes from the Hummingbird zombakers including Red Velvet, chocolate and vanilla flavours. A million times tastier than brains, these freshly baked frights are bound to vanish as soon as they’re opened. For something for all the family, bring bone-chilling terror to the table at dessert time with this orange, green and purple-coloured Vanilla Halloween Cake topped with 3D vampire bats.
Halloween Spirits at Harvey Nichols
Dragon Tears Scotch Whiskey, Bloodshot Spiced Vodka, Black Tears Spiced Rum and a Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Cream Liqueur, are just some of the Halloween inspired Spirits available at Harvey Nichols. Be the ghostess with the mostest and prep the drinks cabinet with these ghoulish delights. With its pumpkin-faced label, we’re also a fan of the Tenuta di Tavignano. Crisp and dry with a gentle fizz, it tastes like pear sorbet, crunchy green apples, lemon sherbet, wildflowers, the herb patch on a frosty morning, and an ever-so-gentle waft of fine cider.
