Halloween

Not much going on here for halloween, but I did think I ought to do something, so I have of course carved my pumpkin!IMG_3766

I’m not the most accomplished carver, but I quite like it.

I roasted the innards, and made some pumpkin soup, and finally, I made some ghost cakes!

I used the Hummingbird Bakery chocolate cupcake recipe, but tweaked it to make it a little more bitter and less sweet. I did this because I topped the cakes with little (read: huge) ghosts made of piped marshmallow icing, from this recipe. I then finished them off with faces made of melted dark chocolate, and a sprinkle of edible glitter.

Hope everyone has a suitably spooky evening!
