Halloween-liscious Food

Boo! Halloween is here! We don't really celebrate Halloween in Malaysia, but you know what? I'm still in the spirit to share with you guys some yummyliscious Halloween treats! If you're throwing a little Halloween party, I'd be perfect! Before that, here's a little recycling Halloween craft for you.
Little Pumpkin Display. Adorable, aren't they? These are done pretty easily. How is it recycled? That right there folks, is an old light bulb in disguise! Here's what you need for this :
1. Old lightbulb
2. Permanent markers & Glue
3. White and red paint
4.small piece of cardboard
5. Scrap pieces of ribbons
6. Mini wreath
7. Orange spray paint

All you need to do here, is spray the old light bulb in orange and leave it to dry a bit. While waiting for it to dry, cut out a cardboard star and colour/draw on it with your permanent markers. Glue the cardboard star + scrap ribbon on the top of the light bulb [after you turn it upside down]. You can use superglue or glue gun. For the rosy cheeks of the pumpkin, dab your finger into a tiny bit of red paint and smudge it on the light bulb in a circular motion [makes me think of physics]. Draw on the eyes, nose and mouth with black permanent marker and use a sharp tipped brush to dot the white paint on the eye. Lastly, place the pumpkin on the wreath and stick it on. Now, admire your adorable pumpkin like there's no tomorrow. The end! Fairly easy isn't it?

Let's move on to the food.

I know you've heard of kaya butter waffles, peanut butter chocolate waffles, blueberry choc waffles, choc banana waffles, peanut butter and kaya waffles.. etc, but have you heard of jack o' lantern waffles? Yums!
 To make this, mix a batter of waffle mix and add orange colouring to your liking. Pour the batter onto the waffle making machine as you would a normal waffle. For the eyes, nose and mouth, use choc chips to 'draw' it on. And that is all! You have your jack o' lantern waffles! [You might not want too much spread as the waffle already has choc chips]

 If you're having eggs, this is a pretty adorable idea. 

 Monster cake!
 This is fairly simple, it's just bread with sausages as legs. You could use eggs as the eyes and black olives or cut out seaweed for the pupil. If I'm not wrong, the pink 'web' is a kind of candy. Perhaps you could get those long chewy sour ones? I can't think of the name right now.

Now this one here is really great for parties, especially if it involves kids! Why? It's like a cookie face fixing game for them! Provide them with the cookies & orange plates and they won't bother you for a good number of hours! The cookies pieces are a variety of eyes, nose and mouth. You could add in hair, mustache, or beards too! Kids would have fun fixing up all sorts of funny faces. I think I myself would have that much fun too! I'm such a kid. Tsk tsk.
That is all for today's post! Have a wonderful Halloween people! <-- Pretend you read this early in the morning where it's just the beginning of Halloween. Thank you.
