This whole week has been full on Halloween, from planning fun social media content at work to hosting a costume-party at my flat this weekend. I’m honestly all spooked out. But I always love Halloween, and this time it was no exception.
Always remember to iron your ghost.
Halloween isn’t all trickery though, I had to get some cake in there! This year I made a vanilla cheesecake with a spiderweb design (which I like to call Charlotte-Cheesecake) and anatomical cupcakes (the brains inspired by Lily Vanilli’s ‘A Zombie Ate My Cupcake). I also made some holiday-appropriate peppermint creams because they’re too good to leave out…
I got the little yellow recipe book out to make some of Mum’s classic boozy punch as well. It got the Halloween treatment of course, with gummy worms and mouths…I did go a bit excessive and make a second punch with my Salted Caramel Vodka which I never wanted to taste again. So into a cocktail it went!
My friend David even brought a gift! His friend makes these little chocolate sugar skulls, and me loving everything Mexican thought this was the best thing ever.
And the costume? Well I went as Little Miss Piggy and my flatmate, Erin, joined in the Muppet fun to go as Kermit the frog. We did alright really.

And since it was Halloween, we decided to chance our fate and go for a creepy midnight zombie walk around the park…we survived.
