Halloween Prep Part 1.

I bought this crazy haunted house gingerbread kit at the craft store. Thought it would be fun to make with Poppet for Halloween. In our house, you don't have to look hard for an excuse to do gingerbread, though I'm not quite ready to bake it yet. And why would you? This one tasted great.
It came with everything, just add water...

Control-freak Mummy actually let Poppet have a go (that's quite a challenge for me!).
 
A handy beer bottle doubled as a rolling pin and then a weight. We let the house sit an hour to set before decorating as it was rather wobbly....

I can't think of many occasions for which black icing is required.

We piped together, and of course a lot came out the wrong end all over me. I'm still washing the black stuff from under my fingernails...

Black apparently tastes just as good as pink!

Waste not want not...

Spooky! Not.

And those orange candies taste just like cough medicine. Mmmmm.....

We had some Aussies over to carve pumpkins and the kids smashed up the house and ate it. The big kids had some too...


Quite tasty. My next post will heavily feature pumpkins, as it should...

  1. Halloween is not something traditionally celebrated by Kiwis but a friend in Brisbane has a huge halloween party every year that we had the pleasure of attending both years we lived there.
