Spooky Edible Slime

Here’s a yummy recipe that’s perfect for little monsters to go with our ghoulish new ghost crumpets!



  • 1 Large bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 Cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Cup icing sugar
  • Dash of green food colouring


Ask an adult to pour the bag of marshmallows into a large microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds and stop. Then repeat.

Add in the icing sugar, colouring and oil then mix together, but be careful with the hot mixture!

Let it cool for about 15 minutes. Coat your hands in some of the remaining oil and mix by hand. It will be really sticky, but you can continue adding a little oil until you are happy with the consistency.

Best played with on a washable surface! If you want to make your slime less sticky, it helps to coat your hands in some oil.

With Hallowe’en just around the corner, get ready for frightening fun with our Trick or Crumpeats game for all your little (and big!) monsters!!!

Pop our crumpets in the toaster and let your imagine loose with messy and sticky toppings. Simply cover your crumpets in toppings like sticky treacle, whipped cream or lashings of chocolate spread and tie them up and them ‘float’ in front of your guisers!

Alternatively, put the crumpets on plates on the floor – just make sure you have no helpful furry friends around to ‘help’ the guisers 🐶🐱

Now with their hands behind their backs – let the Trick or Crumpeats competition start!

Don’t forget to share your photos and videos on our Facebook page for a chance to win a box of our spooktacular crumpets 👻🎃

Panic? What panic?

The C02 shortage and why we’re not worried

The CO2 shortage means that some other crumpet manufacturers are struggling to produce their crumpets – but not us at Lakeland Bake!

A number of factors have caused this including high gas prices, factories in Europe closing.

Some big names have been badly affected, at a busy time of year for the food and drink industry, and there is genuine concern that demand cannot be met.

How the BBC reported the C02 shortage

The obvious ones being beer and fizzy drinks, but the gas is also used to slaughter farm animals and package food.

Here at Lakeland Bake we don’t use C02, so our supply is totally unaffected because we believe in delivering the freshest product to the customer.

So why not enjoy your summer with our tasty crumpets, whether it’s the World Cup,Wimbeldon or family barbecue.

Try one of our serving suggestions and you’ll keep coming back for more.
