I love October because it is the month of scares, tricks and spooky treats! Adding that scary edge to baking is so much fun as you can see from my Spooky "Bone" Meringues and "Zombie Brain" Charlotte Royale. I hope you've all been having a great time making your bakes look ghoulish and terrifying! We're having a Halloween buffet at work which I am so excited for, I'll be making Pumpkin Pie. Now that The Great British Bake Off has come to a close for another year, you may be inspired to get in the kitchen and start experimenting. Or you may be looking for Christmas gifts for a baking obsessed friend or relative. Here are some great baking accessories to consider...
