My post today is a sad one. Each week, one person in my office brings in treats/food for the rest of us. We call it ‘Fat Friday’. I had moved my Fat Friday (snacks for the office) to today (Hallowe’en) so it could be themed. Unfortunately, only 1 part of my plan made it to work.
I am really getting into cake/cupcake decorating. My friend and I are planning to take a Wilton class in the winter, and I have done 2 Le Dolci cupcake classes. So, Hallowe’en = a theme cake. Out I go to my local kitchen store and buy a bat-shaped cake pan. I made the chocolate-beet cake from the Globe and Mail. I iced creatively, outlining my bat in multiple colours.
And then my dog ate it. He and I are still not talking. There was one wing left (my husband save what he could for me).
But there is more! I wanted to try something new! Traditional Hallowe’en fare, the caramel apple.
My mom and I tried two ways of melting the caramel (stove-top and microwave, go with the microwave) and quickly dipped the apples. I haven’t tried one yet, but they looked good 🙂
What are your favourite Hallowe’en treats? I think next year it will be all chocolate based.
