Make some friends with these friendly ghost cupcakes. These little ghosties have a special secret ingredient - herbal cinnamon tea brewed in milk to spice up your classic vanilla vegan cupcake.

Try using Cinnamon Apple Chamomile tea by Stash Tea for the perfect fall flavor.


Bite into these donuts with your fangs. The herbal lemon tea adds an unexpected but delightful twist on these gluten-free vanilla vampire donuts.

Check out Meyer Lemon tea by Stash Tea for a burst of lemon flavor.


Get caught in a cupcake web. With the hidden ingredient of oolong tea, these sticky donuts are sure to please everyone in the room. We recommend using this pure organic oolong tea called Shangri-La Oolong by Nepal Tea.


Munch down on a paleo-friendly (grain-free and gluten-free) werewolf paw this Halloween to feel good about your chocolatey cravings. The pu-erh tea steeped in milk adds another layer of flavor you don’t find in most cupcakes and the nut butter and roasted nuts makes for a balanced treat that’s both slightly savory and slightly sweet. Trick or treat!


The deliciousness of a caramel apple in the form of this flavorful drink is brought together by a drop of caramel vodka, a smidgen of cider, and a bit of black tea like Bitaco's Colombian Black Tea.

Try using Rooibos Spiced Chai by Davidson's Organic Tea for that classic fall spice flavor.


There are many ways to enjoy tea other than just drinking it. Try this rich and decadent Black Wolf Cake — it’s perfect for a spooky Halloween treat! No tricks here!

We recommend pairing a slice of this cake with one of these teas that cast a spell!
