RECIPE: Gingerbread Mummies

These are a really fun take on your typical Gingerbread men, seeing as it’s Halloween, we decided to make Halloween Gingerbread Mummies.  It’s just your normal gingerbread recipe and gingerbread man cutter and then it’s how you decorate them. We used buttercream (piped) and edible eyes to decorate ours but you could use white chocolate,Continue reading “RECIPE: Gingerbread Mummies”

RECIPE: Chocolate Avocado Cake

Pottering around with Pumpkins

Every year I attempt to carve my own pumpkins, I’m such a big kid, but when I was younger I never got to do all this!  When we were younger pumpkins were unthought-of, it was turnips all the way, yes turnips, instead of a pumpkin my parents would carve out a turnip!  I love pumpkinsContinue reading “Pottering around with Pumpkins”

Rarely am I happy with something creative that I do, yes when it comes to baking or nail art etc I am a total perfectionist, but I have to admit this year I’m pretty happy with myContinue reading “Halloween Nail Art”
