Vampire Spider Cupcakes

Earlier today I stumbled across a photo I did for a kids’ workshop last half term and decided I had to share. Looking back at all my other Halloween bakes over the years there seems to be a prevalence of creepy crawlies, I have an affinity to them and arachnids are far nicer than severed …

Halloween Pumpkin Cakes

This is a case of two classes one cake. It may have been half term in these neck of the woods last week, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t busy. If anything the scale of the commitments meant I was busier. A business meeting at a stunning private estate about something exciting coming to East Midlands in …

Beetle Forest Gateau

Those of you with entomophobia (fear of insects) may want to look away now.

Black Velvet Beetle Cakes

We don’t celebrate Halloween as such in our household. Well we don’t trick or treat or encourage trick or treaters, but I do use it as an opportunity to take something and give it a gruesome twist. Last year was a Sweeney Todd Pie to accompany my Mrs Lovatt costume. This year as inspired by …

Possibly the worst pies in London…

…or maybe should that be Derbyshire. Pen is going to be so proud of me for fitting a musical connection into my blog post! For those who don’t follow me on Twitter you may not realise that Hubby & I are going to a Halloween Party as Sweeney Todd & Mrs Lovett. Going as Mrs …
