Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova

Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova

This Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova would make an impressive centrepiece. Marshmallowy meringue filled with a chocolate cream and raspberries, topped with more of the same plus chocolate soil, raspberry blood coulis and meringue ghosts and chocolate spiders. Try if you dare…..

Halloween is such a great excuse to get creative when I bake and make some fun treats to share with my friends, family and blog readers. There is just so much scope to get messy in the kitchen and create something that looks fun and tastes delicious. This Spooktacular Halloween Pavlova is actually very easy to make and does not take as long as you might think.

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake #GBBO #Veganweek

This decadent Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake is great for those following a plant based diet. It is fudgy and delicious and the iced cobweb and added spiders are optional!

It is Vegan week on the Great British Bake Off tonight and for someone who has never made a vegan cake before, this proved to be a little tricky. However, thankfully after a third attempt in the kitchen last Friday, this Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake was created and I was very happy with it.

Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats #GBBO #Patisserieweek

These Halloween themed Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats are great fun to serve your children at this time of year. Easy to make and your kids could even help decorate them!

It is semi finals week on the Great British Bake Off and with that brings patisserie week.  Do you have your favourite to win the series yet? Having read up on tonights show, I decided to have a go at making some Choux Buns which is the signature round this week. Rather than make 24 identical choux buns, I thought I would make some Halloween inspired buns instead: Halloween Mummy Eclairs and Chocolate Choux Bats. Therefore, I opted to make 10 Mummy Eclairs and 10 Choux Bats (for some reason my recipe made 20 choux buns instead of 24!).
