Treat Petite October - Round Up
Happy Halloween! The theme for this month's Treat Petite was 'Trick or Treat', luckily all we got were plenty of treats! Read on for some fantasic baking ideas if you are in the kitchen this weekend...
Katie from Feeding Boys and a Firefighter started us off with two recipes. Toffee Apple Cupcakes and Pumpkin, Ginger & Orange Traybake. They are both delicious seasonal bakes that I am sure her family enjoyed!
Caroline Makes... entered these Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies. She made these with goodies brought back from America by her boyfriend's mum.
These spooky spiderweb cookies are Spiced Pumpkin Cookies from Corina at Searching For Spice. She made these using a home grown pumpkin!
Next up we have Gruesome Green Popcorn from my Treat Petite co-host Stuart at Cakeyboi. A fantastic simple idea which creates such a great effect!
Linzi from Lancashire Food made a Gingerbread Loaf. A classic comforting recipe perfect for this time of year. It's definitely one of my favourites, although I have not seen it with sultanas in before. I'm going to have to try that next time!
You would never guess these pretty Roasted Beetroot & Raw Cacao Nib Cupcakes from Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary were so healthy! It's a great way to get kids eating vegetables, and Elizabeth's son loved these!
Wow aren't these Halloween Chocolate Apples impressive?! Camilla from Fab Food 4 All sent these in. I love the spiderweb pattern it's so cool!
These little beauties are Ginger & White Chocolate Hi Hat Cupcakes from Helen at Casa Costello. I've never heard of Hi Hats before, but buttercream frosting encased in chocolate sounds pretty good to me!
Kevin from The Crafty Larder sent in these gorgeously bright Spiced Pumpkin In A Jar. I love the presentation, they look so great in the jars so you can see the layers of the cake!
My Halloween bake this month were these Halloween Cupcakes. I did three designs; a brain, broken 'glass', and scratched cupcakes. I thought they looked pretty gruesome!
Dominic from Belleau Kitchen made these creepy looking Halloween Witches Eyeballs. They are actually sponge covered in chocolate ganache, not as scary as they look!
There are so many macarons around nowadays it's nice to see some Macaroons for a change! These green macaroons from Keep Calm & Fanny On would make a perfect Halloween treat.
Laura from I'd Much Rather Bake Than... sent in these Mini Double Chocolate Pecan Pear Crumbles. She made them as a delicious surprise for her parents.
The sauce running over these Toffee Apple Cheesecakes from Something Sweet, Something Savoury makes them look so appetising!
Caroline Makes... was back for a second time with these Pumpkin Spice M&M Halloween Cookies. I've never heard of this flavour of M&M's before, I must hunt some down!
I love these Halloween Two Tone Rose Red Velvet Cupcakes from Domestic Gothess. The icing is absolutely beautiful. Pretty, with a dark twist!
Eeek! I am not a fan of spiders but Kate at The Gluten Free Alchemist has managed to make these Halloween Cake Pop Spiders look a little less frightening. Don't think my arachnophobia is quite cured just yet, but Kate is doing better than me!
The letters on these Spiced Honey Shortbread by Family Friends Food were stamped on using a letterpress cookie set. You can change the letters in the set to say anything you like, very clever! I love the cute pumpkin in the background too.
Ruth from Makey Cakey entered her Franken-Biscuits. These would be great for making with kids as they can get creative and make a scary Frankenstein face!
Ros from The More Than Occasional Baker sent in two spooky bakes. Pumpkin Pecan Roll with Maple Cinnamon Glaze, she doesn't make bread often but when she does, she does it well! And
Spooky Ghost Cake Pops, I find cake pops difficult to make so I'm impressed with her efforts!
Another American style treat from Caroline Makes... with this Halloween Candy Corn Rocky Road. I love candy corn! It's really yummy and I would love to try a piece of this.
The final bake for this month are these spooky Halloween Cake Pops from Helen at Casa Costello. They look brilliant and are really well decorated!
Wow such an amazing array of bakes this month. Thank you to everyone who got their spook on this month! Please check out the blogs above if a recipe takes your fancy. Look out for November's theme announcement soon over on Cakeyboi.
