Last year, our first Halloween in Somerset was marked with utter disappointment by general malaise on lack of preparation on my part. We nearly had tears from a little girl...but remembering this, I am prepared.
Ghosties with a sprinkling of
frost icing sugar following my recipe previously used. These are rather short and then I realised that they have ground almonds, so will have to check with visitors that they do not have allergies.
and Bourbon Bats...Ice crystal eyes need to be added before baking, I discovered this in time for the last batch! This recipe has given a more robust biscuit, so next year will made bats for everyone!
Last week, we had one of the most amazing sunsets...wouldn't be great if we had one again this evening.
I have carved out the pumpkin, and checked that the flashing cycle lights are charged, ready to set by the front door this evening.
