Witches Cauldron Cake

This fun creepy Witches Cauldron Cake will make a great centrepiece at any Halloween party, read own to discover how to make one yourself this Halloween.

With it being Halloween at the end of the month, my boys are started to get a little excited already. This is largely due to the fact that the school Halloween disco is on the 20th and they, like many of the other school children, love this because they get to dress up in fancy dress and so do the teachers and PTA helpers. I have to admit, *whispers* it is my favourite disco of the three held each year too!

Apple & Blackberry Crumble Slices (#GBBO week 5)

Apple & Blackberry Crumble Slices (#GBBO week 5)

So it is week 5 of the Great British Bake Off which means it is the fifth week of our Great Bloggers Bake Off!!! I was completely taken aback by the entries to the last linky – 40 in total which is amazing and all the pies were so fantastic too. I love how everyone is continuing to challenge themselves and produce some outstanding results *pats everyone on the back*

Our fourth Star Baker was Karin (Cafe Bebe) with her gluten free mini blueberry pies so a very well done to her 🙂

Anyway, back to this week and on The Great British Bake Off the contestants had to create traybakes, tuiles and biscuits. I loved Becca’s biscuit cake stand and the colour of Rob’s macaroons and that banoffee style salted millionnaires shortbread looked tempting. I am also glad that I did not decide to make tuiles this week – I think I would have failed miserably!

I decided to go with a traybake for my GBBO entry. I had some apples given to me and having picked some blackberries at the weekend, I opted to make some apple and blackberry crumble slices. So here is my bake off.
