All Hallow’s Eve

Posted by on November 14, 2011

Winter is my most favoured of the seasons. Not exclusively due to the ease of hiding the extra layer that comes with cooking treats all year long. It’s mostly because it comes complete with all my most loved of the vacays: Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Each allow me the excuse to celebrate by whipping up delights of their respective nature.

I spent many hours trawling the internet for holiday baking inspiration and decided on spooky cake pops a la miss Bakerella and creepy broken glass cupcakes Queen Martha Stewart style.

This was my first attempt at cake pops and even though I did my research, I still managed to make a few mistakes. I initially made them on sticks but they were too top heavy and kept falling off. I used the famous Hummingbird Red Velvet Cupcake recipe and covered them in a layer of scrumptious white chocolate. I think in the future I’ll give candy melts a whirl to give me a wider range in my colour arsenal. Nevertheless I was delighted with the outcome. I encourage everyone to try their hand at these little poppity pops…

        There is a picture of the eyeball pasta on my facebook tagged photos :) ! The eyeballs are made out of mini mozzarella balls and pesto for eyeballs :) ! The pumpkin pasties were not very photogenic however, but tasted AMAZING! xxx
