I came home today, turned the light on and the fire alarm had fallen off the ceiling and smashed... bit strange but anyway............
move in to the living room and ALL the paintings have fallen off the walls..............
a coincidence or super creepy?? I'm going with creepy!
I rang the boy, no answer so I ring my dad (obviously!) he says very strange but is concentrating on all the "trick or treaters" knocking at his door. I can hear them giggling and growling and it cheers me up!
If there is a ghost living in my house I'm sure he or she is nice so, obviously over my scare, I potter off to make a Halloween chilli soup with sweet potatoes (which incidentally is yummy!).
Last Friday, after work, I ran a little Halloween cupcake decorating class. I modelled a spider, a cobweb, a ghost and a mummy. Then I let the team loose on the sweets, icing, squeezy tubes, piping bags and sprinkles. They either had a go at the ones I made or let their imagination run wild, and wild it ran!
Here we are with all the goodies, concentrating hard!
My super quick mummy, ghost and spider (who has lost two legs)
The lovely Ros with her ghost, her son Montel would be proud!
Charlotte with her spider in a web!
Colourful cobweb by Nicola
Squished frogs by Catherine
I'm slightly speechless at this one!
It was a lot of fun and I hope the team enjoyed it!
The cupcakes underneath are spiced pear, I thought this was a nice autumnal recipe for Halloween cupcakes. They were moist yet fluffy (which is tricky to get), definitely a repeat recipe, I highly recommend them with a cream cheese icing.
