Halloween - Cauldron Crafts

Halloween is a fun time of year around our house.  First off who doesn't like to play dress up?  Well, okay, a lot of people don't, BUT those that do have a lot of fun!  Secondly, my husband is a Halloween baby.  All in all this means, cake, costumes, candy, parties,

The reason that this post is called Cauldron Crafts is because of some lovely ladies from Fabric Donkey .  For the month of September you can find Cauldron Crafts, a month of Halloween crafting on their blog.  A little bonus is that they are running a fabric giveaway.  To win, you have to post about Cauldron Crafts (really check it out, there are some cute things, I like the Mummy pillow).

My Halloween craft is from a couple years ago.  Halloween Petit Fours that I made for my husband.  Every guy dreams of petit fours right?  Okay, they do not, but he is a good sport and enjoyed his cake(s).

The spiders and ghosts were made ahead of time with Royal icing.  I used techniques from Wilton.  For the cake I baked a large square/rectangle cake and cut it in to small squares.  I covered half of the squares with chocolate ganache and the other half with white chocolate ganache with orange food colouring.  They were a lot of fun.

If you are not in to petit fours, you can do the same thing on cupcakes, like I did here.  The kids took these ones to school.

The cupcakes were a yummy pumpkin cake recipe, unfortunately I forget the recipe I used. 

Stay tuned for more Halloween updates as we approach October 31.  Happy Halloween Crafting!
