Ebay x Juniper Cakery: Cute & Colourful Halloween Cake Tutorial!

eBay #fillyourcartwithcolour Halloween cake by Juniper Cakery

When Autumn swings around we get ridiculously excited about Halloween! It’s the perfect holiday to kickstart party season! Seriously… what’s not to love? Spooky themed candy (our particular favourites are jelly spiders & eyeballs), anything with black cats on them, and absolutely everything pumpkin related! So when eBay (definitely give them a follow over on Instagram) contacted us about creating a Halloween cake tutorial perfect for their #fillyourcartwithcolour we couldn’t wait to start!

#fillyourcartwithcolour is a such a vibrant idea for a campaign and we love it! eBay is so convenient. Lots of retailers sell on the auction site now making it even easier to shop online. If we have a project coming up eBay is the first stop. From fondant and food colour via Cake Stuff to Lakeland’s own kitchen gadget range it helps take the stress out of shopping. The way people use eBay is completely different to a few years ago (enter Krystle searching for those beautiful Alexander McQueen bee embroidered slippers) to now (still searching for those mythical shoes as well as sourcing cake supplies and photography backdrops). The #fillyourcartiwthcolour campaign helps highlight how anyone’s passion can be fuelled by just a few clicks on eBay!

Halloween colour palette

We started our collaboration with eBay by thinking about… colour! We wanted something obviously Halloween-esque, but also suitably quirky. At the time we began gathering ideas we’d also just planned a trip to a nearby pumpkin patch! Obviously we wanted to work some gorgeous rustic orange tones in. We then played with different oranges and pinks. It then made sense to add blacks, charcoal tones and different metallics. In the end our eyes kept gravitating towards a bright amber orange paired with a bubblegum pink (we LOVE our pink photography backdrop) with gold leaf accents, crisp white, soft pink and a glittery black!

Find the perfect cake tools on eBay

One of our favourite eBay finds were these rose gold modern unicorn make-up brushes (and those cute pink modelling tools)! They are seriously perfect for cake. We often talk about using food safe brushes when working with cakes and treats. What that means is any non-animal containing brush (no hair or bristles) that has only ever been used on edible items. Brand new make-up brushes and nail art brushes are perfect. Nail art brushes are so tiny they are amazing when it comes to painting intricate details. Make-up brushes are super fluffy so they’re great for dusting and adding sparkle! Obviously another plus is that they look so glam. They’re perfect for photography or to feel a little magical when decorating a treat!
