Last year I was humbled to judge some cakes at a community event in the city centre. I never got round to sharing the pictures on my blog last year, so here are a selected few from Halloween last year.
One - This one by the way is not one of the entries, it was the prize for the winner.
Two - These Halloween cupcakes were the winners, for taste but also for visual impact and effort. I love the individual pumpkin, the witches hat, the grave-stone heads, and look close there is even a spider and a ghost!
We had this Chocolate Bundt cake covered in skull heads.
Three - There were also plenty of savoury nibbles, such as these creepy black olive spiders. Not the best picture, but don't they look like they are moving - they were delicious to eat.
Another savoury morsel topped with peppers, olives, sweetcorn and gherkins.
More black olive spiders.
Four - Now we have some home-made spooky up-cycled tins (see first picture); DIY bats made by the children.
DIY Halloween bunting. I love individual and personal touches like these so much.
Five - A little while ago I made this Smoked Chilli Roasted Butternut Squash and Red Onion pastry tart. Although still to be baked and turned golden, I think the colours are very seasonal!On a side note, a work friend is going tomorrow night to Fear Fest Halloween Night. I am envious a it will be an awesome spooky night, but haven't been able to convince D to go with me, so I am excited for her and look forward to hearing from her come Monday.
