My daughter's friends came for lunch yesterday and we had a lovely time.
Unfortunately preparing a meal for seven young
I decided to keep the meal simple and having seen pumpkin shaped pizzas on various blogs, I thought I would give them a try, adding a ghost and bat for each child. They were supplemented with cocktail sausages and sausage rolls, as well as olives (black and green) and various cold meats.
There were shop bought cakes and biscuits for pudding and then once I had cleared the table the girls decorated orange (coloured) and chocolate (flavoured) cupcakes. I had baked enough for them to have six each to take home, which they did. (Of course, these are what I completely forgot to photograph, which is a great shame, as the girls had all come up with fantastic designs for their cakes!)
Looking at my daughter's lunch plate I think it's a good job we don't have celebrations every day! I did have raw carrots and as I had bought some yellow as well as orange, they did all have two carrot sticks to compare the taste - so some vegetables were consumed!
|The table, before the feasting started!|
|A spooooky, haunted Bundt castle cake|
|I used one cake stand for savouries|
|The cocktail sticks were bought as part of cupcake|
kits, but I thought it more fun to use them with the food
|Lots of shop bought goodies, which the girls all|
|We were inundated with spiders! UGGH!|
|Even on the fruit!|
|I made normal pizza dough, and used cookie cutters|
to cut out shapes
|I kept them simple, just tomato and mozzarella|
|I was pleased with the Bundt castle cake,|
I decorated it with a white glace icing, which I poured and
drizzled over the cake, and then various ghosts etc. from
the cupcake kits
And some more spiders!
