Halloween Horrors

Ghoulish greetings and a Happy Halloween! Still no news from genie wrangler Jessica Black, but I've ordered my clone anyway, and set her to making a few horrific offerings in the kitchen while I play about on the internet.  If you're stuck for some last minute treats for the kids, these are all pretty quick to do.


Bloodshot Monster Eyeballs
[Fairy cake, glace icing, half a liquorice allsort, red writing icing]

Graveyard Cakes
[Fairy cake, green butter icing, half a bourbon biscuit, black writing icing]

Cheesy Pumpkin
[Wotsits, cherry tomatoes, black paper]


Gingerbread Mummies
[Gingerbread men, icing, silver/sugar balls]


Rice krispie Spiders - with assistance of Boy2
[Rice krispie cakes, matchmakers, sugar balls]

Ogre Teeth
[Apple slices, peanut butter, mini marshmallows]

I've carved a fairly standard Jack O Lantern for this Halloween, but I thought I'd show you last year's effort. My brother in law got married at this time last year, and he and my sister in law wanted all the guests to carve a 'romantic' pumpkin to decorate the venue. So this is supposed to be Lionel Richie! 


Hello! Is it me you're looking for?

Pretty terrifying I think you'll agree!

  13. It's things like these that make me totally look forward to having munchkins in the future. As it is right now I barely even celebrate Halloween. But when I do have munchkins I know I will be going ALL OUT!! (Cause I will have a good excuse too.) *heheheh*

    Your pumpkin was amazing & treats looks delicious.

  18. Pretty amazing what you've done with these ingredients foreign to me. I could lick that cheese puff pumpkin up in one lickity split. Those ogre teeth are so cool. Love it all, if I ever make babies I'm totally going to entertain them with these treats. Oh and thanks for flattering clown advice. I'm still looking into it. Figure I could dress as a pochahontas or. Snow white or Dora the explorer as well.

  19. Oh fabulous cakes! Truly inspired!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'll have to wait a whole year to try these ideas out! They're all brilliant, I felt rather sad looking at my pathetic Rice Crispie efforts with a couple of sweet teeth rammed in.
    Did you do the Lionel Richtea? If so, you're invited to my wedding (when I decide to get married!).

  21. really creative! I love the look of the graveyard cakes, but the ogre teeth are a little too realistic for my liking...
    Very realistic Lionel Richie pumpkin, that made me giggle :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Amazingly creative! I especially love the gingerbread mummies and the graveyard cakes! I bet all the children in your neighbourhood want an invitation to your house at Hallowe'en.

  42. That is the best pumpkin ever! Not that I am a massive Lionel Ritchie fan but appreciate how both random and creative it is. Very impressed with your gravestone cup cakes too. Going to enjoy catching up on your blog while my foot is stuck in a bucket of ice (Australian ants).
