Half Term Halloween Crafting

It’s half term again!  Where did that time go?

So we’re off in the stormy weather and looking forward to Halloween and Bonfire Night.  That can mean only one thing, it’s time to bake!

Baking really does seem to be the best craft with a small child.  We had a party to go to on Saturday, so it seemed only polite to make some cakes and biscuits to take with us.

Out came the ghost cake moulds, spidery cake cases and the spookiest biscuit cutters we could find – stars, cats and bats!  And how could we forget adding orange and green icing for decoration???

Halloween Party Baking

The biscuits are gingerbread and the recipe is from a Hello Kitty Christmas book!!  It’s really simple and makes very lovely biscuits.  The cakes are an all-in-one sponge recipe with cocoa powder and chocolate buttons added for interest, decorated with chocolate buttercream and a ginger biscuit!

They were all demolished at the party, but we did manage to sample a couple first (all in the name of quality control of course).

Next stop is carving the pumpkin and making a pumpkin curry!
