Halloween Bakes, Cakes & Recipes:
Win a Spooky Halloween Party Planner App!
With little over two weeks to go to Halloween, or All Hallow’s Eve as prefer to call it, I am sharing a few of my recipes for cakes, bakes and savoury dishes with you, as well as an opportunity to win one of FIVE special Halloween Party Planner Apps for your iPad or iPhone……this special app is provided by Good to Know Recipes and is worth £1:99 – it’s just a bit of fun and all you have to do win one of the five apps I have to give away is to leave a comment below……..but first, let me share my Halloween recipes with you. These are my most recent Halloween recipes, and there is something to suit everyone.
Firstly, here is my recipe for some little savoury creepy crawlies…..Just for the Grown-Ups for All Hallow’s Eve – Creepy Crawly Curried Devilled Eggs! Those of you with a nervous disposition or those who suffer from arachnophobia should step away from the table, as my curried devilled eggs have a green spider sat astride each egg, complete with legs…..all eight of them!
Secondly, here is a lovely recipe for Mashed of Nine Sorts, an old English recipe that is pure comfort food……More Spooky Family Food with a Traditional All Hallows’ Eve Supper ~ Mash O’ Nine Sorts. This is such a wonderful and traditional English recipe for Hallowe’en – All Hallow’s Eve. It was a dish traditionally served to unmarried guests with the added intrigue of a ring hidden inside. Whoever found the ring would be the next one to be married. This delicious mashed potato has nine ingredients in it ~ hence its name.
Thirdly is a recipe for Spooky Spider Cakes – I JUST love these and even though I am sure they are meant to be baked for children, why can’t the grown ups have a little bit of fun too! Spooky Spider Cakes for a Howling Halloween. I JUST love these little spider cakes, every time I make them, their faces make me laugh ~ well, I am easily pleased! Furthermore, they are delicious ~ they taste much better than NORMAL spiders I find, as normal spider’s legs are a little too chewy…….. (This recipe was originally published in Good Food Magazine ~ I tweaked it slightly!)
Next up on the Halloween cake’s front, is a recipe for Twit Woo Hooting Halloween Owl Cupcakes - These are GREAT fun…..just bake some chocolate fairy cakes, muffins or cupcakes, decorate them and then turn them into Hooting Halloween Owls, just like that ~ it’s magic. I made these last year for a children’s Halloween party, and they all loved them. The recipe is based on our British fairy cake or angel cake recipe, where the top of the baked cake or muffin is cut off to create the “wings”. (This wonderful recipe idea is one that I have adapted slightly from Tana Ramsay)
How about this spooky breakfast recipe for Ghoulish Ghostly Cinnamon Toast for Halloween! I first saw this idea on a large food website somewhere, but now I can’t remember where! I think in the original recipe idea, the plan was that you used a “ghost” cookie cutter to cut out the shapes; as I don’t possess a ghost cookie cutter (but maybe I should?!) I cut my ghostly shapes out with a sharp knife, hence their different shapes……well, why not, not all ghosts are the same!
