DIY With Spotlight: Spooky Cakes

Here at LENZO, we are so excited for the #ScarySeason that is quickly dawning upon us, so much so, that we have teamed up with Spotlight to throw a Halloween bash like no other.

If you too are having a get together for Halloween, we recommend going all out on the sweets and to create anything from #BOO monogramed cookies to brain jelly to ensure you are the host of the #SpookiestPartyOfTheYear. To get the #WOWfactor for Halloween, LENZO loves getting creative and decorating cakes with everything creepy you can get your hands on from your local Spotlight!

Here, we decorate a simple cake pre-pared for us by Lamanna Patisserie with meringue bones and Spotlight Decorations. We have included a step-by-step guide, but the best thing about this DIY, is that you can do whatever your heart desires!



  • Skull cake topper
  • Colour Mist Food Colouring
  • Pre-made cake
  • Bone Meringues


STEP ONE: Prepare any baking goods (ie. the cake and bone meringues) and head over to Spotlight to pick out some cool decorations.

STEP TWO: Spray your bone meringues with Colour Mist Food Colouring (from Spotlight) to give it a real authentic finish.

STEP THREE: Begin from the bottom of the cake and decorate up with your chosen decorations. We kept the base bare with only our coloured bone meringues, which was then topped off by a chilling skull we picked up from Spotlight.

STEP FOUR: Bon-appetite lovelies and we hope you enjoy eating your ghoulish cake!
