Spooky Cakes for Halloween

As you can tell from previous posts on Spooky Fruits and Halloween decorations, I’m getting prepared early for Halloween this year!  Monkey and I decided to make some Spooky Cakes for Halloween earlier in the week, that I could freeze until the big event.

I’d bought a silicone cake mould last year from Avon of all places, and just never got round to using it.

Spooky CakesThis year was going to be different, I actually remembered where I’d put it for a start!  So after lunch my little chef and I got to work. Time to make some spooky cakes for Halloween.

Spooky CakesWe decided on Mixed Berry Muffins (a Hummingbird Bakery recipe that we LOVE).

Spooky CakesOnce the cakes were baked – what could we do to make them look a bit more ghoulish? (I do like that word!)

Spooky CakesI decided to cover them in icing, it was a bit too runny, but I figured that if it had been thicker I would have lost the detail on the cakes ….

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
