Why do I love Halloween so much?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a witch nor do I harbour thoughts of becoming one,
though I've been told that I laugh like a banshee... a nice banshee, of course
Reason #1 for liking Halloween
I get to let loose my crazy creative juices on carving pumpkins.
These soft-skinned giant orange pumpkins are only available this time of year and they're really cheap, so I don't feel bad about throwing them into the compost heap after they've gone off.
To begin carving, I first scoop out the seeds and fibres
then, draw their faces onto the pumpkins using pen or marker
- I refused to use templates... I'm reckless that way!!
I LOVE trick or treaters!!!
especially the little ones in their most adorable outfits...
I LOVE giving away candies allsorts!!!
This year, I decided that I'd give them home-bakes instead
so I made a batch of...
Devil Food cupcakes
Pus-filled Boils pastry
Devil Food cupcakes (that's dark chocolate cupcakes on normal days)
Pus-filled Boils pastry (Strawberry Frangipane in sweet-crust pastry)
A strange two-legged manky cat just appeared from the kitchen door
and she's heading straight for the goodies!!
