TruffleShuffle Does Homemade Halloween!

Here at TruffleShuffle, we LOVE Halloween! Remember our amazing Pumpkin Carving Competition on Facebook?!

This year we thought we would try our hand at more than just the traditional Jack-O-Lantern and see what other tricks treats we could come up with.

Starting with the food (of course!) we found some fantastic ideas that we are just dying to try!

First the cake, you have to have cake right! These cupcakes look easy and effective, chocolate cakes topped with white icing and decorated with black skeletal detail – spookily edible!

White chocolate dipped strawberry ghosts, decorated with dark chocolate – plus it’s essentially fruit so totally healthy 🙂

You will need something to drink so make sure you keep your (blood red!) punch chilled with a frozen ghostly hand. Just fill a latex glove with water and freeze, take off the glove and float the hand in your drinks bowl! Eeeeeasy!

We are especially excited to try these jelly worms. How realistically disgusting to these look – make sure you get the bendy straws for the lifelike wormy texture! Another simple and effective treat for kids and ermm… big kids like us 🙂

Of course, no Halloween party would be complete without dressing up, if you are going for a traditional spooky theme we have our Ladies Rebel Toons Wicked Witch Fancy Dress Costume or Men’s Skeleton Fancy Dress Costume included in our huge selection of Fancy Dress

Ladies Rebel Toons Wicked Witch Fancy Dress Costume £29.99
Ladies Rebel Toons Wicked Witch Fancy Dress Costume £29.99
Men's Skeleton Fancy Dress Costume £16.99
Men’s Skeleton Fancy Dress Costume £16.99

Alternatively, check out what Pinterest has to offer for Homemade Halloween Costumes, we really like the no-sew ideas!

So, you’ve decorated your food and yourselves – don’t forget to give your house The Addams Family treatment…….

Bats and spiders are Halloween essentials!

Love this simply gory idea

It looks like we have most things covered, don’t forget to stock up on sweets for the trick or treaters!


Let us know what spooktacular stuff you have planned!


Need Inspiration? The TruffleShufflers Have Created Some Retro 80′s Pumpkins To Die For!!!

This week, the TruffleShufflers have been racking their brains and seeking inspiration for that well-known Halloween dilemma, what the hell do I carve into my pumpkin???

Yes, for this week’s Friday Facebook competition, everyone at Truffle Towers was given their very own pumpkin with the brief that we had 2 days to design and create a character carving with a retro, 80’s spin.

Well, I must say the end results were very impressive! After a week of highly competitive talk and secretive Internet researching, the portly pumpkins have now been papped and released on our Facebook page!

The name of the game is to LIKE or comment on your favourite to help us decide which TruffleShuffler deserves the title of Pumpkin carving chief! The one with the most votes wins the TruffleShuffler a prize and whoever likes or comments on any pumpkin gets popped into a hat and we’ll randomly select one of you to win a special Halloween treat! You can enter here until 2pm today so please do get invovled!

So, here are the entries..

Superman Logo
Mario (Super Mario Brothers, Nintendo)
Gene Simmons (KISS)
Jack (Nightmare Before Christmas)
Space Invaders
Elmo (Sesame Street)
The Count (Sesame street)
Chunk (The Goonies)

From Pac-Man to Mario, Transformers to Sesame St, a whole host of our favourite characters have been represented in pumpkin form!

Which is your favourite? xoxo
