The 5 Best Bingo-Themed Sweets and Treats

Who would’ve thought that bingo night calls for the ultimate time to whip out your best baking skills? Well, if you’re looking to impress, you should definitely produce all the spoils for your guests. Let’s get into the five best bingo-themed sweets and treats that you could surprise your guests with – or simply enjoy by yourself. Sweet treats will surely put a smile on people’s faces while delighting in a good ol’ game of daubing the numbers on a bingo card.

Gone are the days of whipping up some deviled eggs for a games night and thinking that you’ve done your part of feeding your guests. Whether it’s traditional brick-and-mortar or online bingo games, this national pastime has seen a resurgence in the past few years. So it only makes sense to gather friends and entertain them with some delicious and aesthetically pleasing treats.

What are you waiting for? After all, this classic game is all about socialising, and the tasty nibbles will definitely get your guests raving about your hosting efforts (plus they’ll give them more energy for a few extra games). And who doesn’t love being praised for their games-night hosting skills?

Here are the five best bingo-themed sweets and treats to add to your games-night menu:

1. Pancakes

There’s no reason why we can’t enjoy this breakfast staple all year round and during a night of socialising over bingo. It’s time to get creative with some pancake batter and reach rock-star status in the kitchen! All you’ll need is a piping bag or squeezing bottle filled with some of the good stuff. Once you’ve preheated the pan, you can draw a bingo ball design on the buttered pan (or your favourite call number!). This simple and wonderful treat is sure to make your guests beam with delight.

2. Cupcakes

You can’t go wrong with cupcakes! It’s happiness in cake batter adorned with your wildest creativity. You can go wild when it comes to bingo-inspired cupcakes. Whether it’s 75-ball or 90-ball, you could create a set of cupcakes, each with its own number. If you’re up for the challenge, you could decorate some Slingo bingo-inspired cupcakes too with some icing for the bingo-style. Apart from the delicious sweetness and general “mmmm” factor, the visual appeal of these tiny cakes will definitely get your guests talking and praising your creativity.

3. Biscuits

Yummy biscuits, anyone? What better accompaniment to a few bingo games! Go wild with your own biscuit masterpiece. There’s no limit when it comes to biscuit decorations – only your imagination! We suggest as our top tip: use some writing icing to create a gingerbread bingo card. It might even look too good to eat (but that’s unlikely to stop your guest for long). You can set it up on your snack table and watch as your games-night guests stare in bewilderment.

4. Doughnut holes

Whether you’re hosting a games night, or simply having some alone time playing your favourite online bingo games, doughnut holes will provide the ultimate comfort and energy boost. (Yes, they’re a bit naughty, but you can always make up for it by eating something a bit more nutritious later!) Wondering how you’ll get to make these delicious treats emulate the traditional bingo games? One cool idea is to dip the doughnut holes in white chocolate and then pipe some icing for the numbers. Voila! You have edible bingo balls. They sure will be hard to resist, and certainly add a generous helping of indulgence to the occasion!

5. A themed cake

Since you’re well on your way to embracing The Great British Bake Off with all of these phenomenal sweets and treats, the final showstopper should definitely be a bingo-inspired cake. Here, you’ll get to use your wildest imagination when it comes to decorating. With a much bigger canvas to work on, cakes allow you to have the most fun and sometimes outrageous designs, no matter the theme. You can create cakes with everything from bingo daubers, a cage full of numbers, or even a table full of friends playing this classic favourite social game. We should warn you, it might be difficult to cut the cake and eat it with a design so aesthetically pleasing. But it’s just a matter of time before temptation takes over, right?
