Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! All my blogger friends are invited to my virtual Halloween party over at the Bakezilla household. We've been cooking up a storm! Why not try one of these delightful Graveyard Cupcakes.....

....Or perhaps a Halloween Sugar Cookie is more your thing?

We have lots of fun shapes and characters....

...And if you're not too full, we have Chocolate Apples for all!

...The theme is fancy dress. Do you like my tinkerbell costume?

Office Bake Sale - Cupcakes.

Recently at work we held a bake sale to raise money for Macmillian Cancer Relief. I decided to bake a chocolate fudge cake (which I'm proud to say sold out in 15 minutes), savoury palmiers and of course, cupcakes.

I used a standard chocolate cupcake mixture and topped half the cupcakes with an orange frosting and the other half with a peppermint frosting. Both are easy to make by adapting a basic buttercream frosting recipe. Just add green food colouring and peppermint essence to one batch, and orange food colouring and orange juice and zest to the other batch. Add extra icing/confectioners sugar if the mixture becomes too wet.

Please excuse the poor quality pictures:


Sundried Tomato, Ham and Cheese Palmiers

I made these little babies for a bake sale at work. They're really scrummy and sold pretty well. I didn't really have a recipe to follow. If you want to try them, I'd suggest googling a standard palmier recipe and substituting the filling (usually a sugar-cinnamon butter) for sundried tomato paste, slices of ham or proscuitto and grated mature cheddar. Follow the standard palmier folding technique and slice, egg-wash and bake!
