Spiderweb Pumpkin Cheesecake for Halloween

Hi guys!

We’ve had Halloween Cupcakes and Cookies. Now it’s time for a Halloween Cheesecake! What seasonal veggie could be better to play the lead in today’s Halloween recipe than pumpkin? None I tell you πŸ™‚

Pumpkins always remind me of October and of Halloween. Always. So of course one of my Halloween recipes had to feature pumpkins. I mean, come on. Pumpkins are veggies that can’t be ignored or they’ll turn ugly, agressive and mean. Oh wait, that’s my neighbour’s fabulous carved out pumpkin I’m describing… Anyways, it’s pumpkin recipe time today!

Chocolate Chip Vampire Cookies for Halloween

Hi guys!

Do you know the story about that cute, little nerdy Cookie that went bad? No? Let me tell you.

Nerdy Nummies Smart Cookie

Once upon a Halloween night, Nerdy Cookie felt bored. He thought a walk outside might make him feel better. But he was too afraid to go outside on Halloween, so instead, he grabbed some sweets, installed himelf on the couch and chose a funny movie to watch. Little did he know that eating vampire teeth on Halloween would have a very different outcome than a little bit of a stomach-ache. Continue reading

6 Awesome Halloween Recipes

Hi guys!

Tomorrow is Halloween! I can’t believe it’s here already…
I started off so well with my Spider Web Cupcakes… I actually thought I was going to be able to make lots of Halloween recipes this year! I guess I underestimated the life of a working person. No, I don’t have to work until midnight or something but I really am tired when I come home and I barely feel like baking something, let alone turn on the computer (again) and write something. Sounds silly, I know.

But you’re not here to read all this crap, right. You’re here for the 6 awesome Halloween recipes! I saw it as my duty to give you guys the Halloween you all deserve: one with lots of fun recipe ideas! Soooo I looked around and found some great Halloween recipes πŸ™‚

Halloween Cinnamon Spider Web Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Halloween is coming and that calls for some Spider Web Cupcakes! I’ve seen some amazing Halloween recipes in the last few weeks and I realized I couldn’t wait much longer to come up with some Halloween recipes myself πŸ™‚

Although we don’t celebrate Halloween that much, we did get some Halloween spirits yesterday with our little Halloween pumpkin light… It almost turned out in a burning table so I don’t think I’ll light that thing again xD

What didn’t get burned were these yummy Halloween Cinnamon Spider Cupcakes! πŸ˜€

  • 220 g sugar
  • 220 g butter

  • 250 g mascarpone or cream cheese
  • 250 ml whipping cream

Halloween Cinnamon Spider Web Cupcake Recipe

Let’s make the frosting while our cupcakes cool:

  1. Whip the cream
  2. Add mascarpone and the amount of powder sugar you want
  3. Add cinnamon and mix it all together
  4. Put the frosting in a piping bag with a tip of your choice. I used tip #31
  5. Pipe the frosting on the cupcakes

Time for our spider webs!

  1. Melt the chocolate and put it in a piping bag.
  2. Cut just a little piece off.
  3. Make spider webs on a sheet of baking paper. I made circles with a glass and a pencil to get +- the same size of spider webs.
  4. Let the chocolate webs cool in the fridge. Don’t take them out before they are completely hard!
  5. Place the spider webs on your cupcakes

Halloween Birthdays

Hi guys!

It is October already…
I love fall! Leaves gaining colour and starting to fall on the ground, pumpkin pie, colder weather, hot chocolate, …Almost in need of some cute gloves…

I’m sure I’m not the only one dreaming about a perfect fall ^^

There is ONE day in October that I really, really like: Halloween!
I used to dress myself as a witch and go door to door with some friends.
Too bad we don’t celebrate it that much as English people do…
I would love to decorate my entire house! Oh, I do decorate it but not so much on the outside…
We don’t put graves in our front garden and we don’t throw toilet paper all around…
But we do go door to door! All dressed up!
No, I don’t do that anymore. Although I sometimes wish I could still do so!
Yeah yeah, I know what you’re thinking: “Why don’t you just go out and go door to door! Who cares?!”
Well, I do! And besides, it’s not fair for the children in my street because with me around, they wouldn’t get any candy! No just kidding! But I do have an awesome outfit! It’s Disney so it has to be awesome!Β (I’ll share a picture with you in a later post ;))

Let’s talk Halloween Birthdays!

My Cousin always celebrates her birthday at Halloween or the day before. So you probably already know what I’ve been doing the past two years around Halloween… Indeed! Baking her a birthday cake! And I’m doing the exact same thing this year! But she doesn’t know it yet πŸ˜‰

LISA

My first cake for her was the one with the little ghost. She absolutely loved it!
My second one was a bit harder to make because I wanted to make a witch. So I printed a picture and cut it out in the fondant. I also made a tiny pumpkin.

LISAAAAAA

This year might be the year of the pumpkin :p
What do you think πŸ˜€

Have a delicious day ❀
