Share your fun Halloween edible crafts and recipes and you could WIN.

All my readers are welcome to submit a picture of their edible Halloween creations
in my Halloween Themed Cuisine link party.

Plus you can enter for chance to win a signed copy of my book, Hungry Halloween,
 and a great assortment of Halloween decorating supplies. 


Seeing photos from readers who have been inspired by my projects is often the highlight of my week. When I see an attachment to an e-mail in my inbox and I open it to find something as cool as the snack cakes that Barbara and her son Josh created (pictured above,) I get giddy with excitement. 


It is so amazing to see how you all re-create my projects and it's even more incredible to see how you transform them. Jo and Sue are two super talented ladies who live in a small town in Canada. When they wanted to make my Beaker Twinkie, but couldn't find any Twinkies in their town, they got creative and used a hot dog bun. They tell the hilarious tale of their Beaker Expedition, here on their blog.

One of the coolest re-creations I have seen was also made by this duo. Their Medusa cheese ball based on my Spa Party Appetizer, just blew me away.


Whenever a reader shares a picture with me, I share it with all of you in my Readers' Gallery and oftentimes on Facebook too. I am proud to have inspired so many of you to go have some fun in the kitchen. Above is just a small selection of fun images from the gallery.


I know many of you have purchased my book, Hungry Halloween, and I thank you!!!! For those of you who haven't, I thought I'd take this opportunity to share a handful of images from the book to entice you. I know this is a shameless plug, but a girls got to make a living somehow! If you share this picture anywhere, please add a link to my book, here.

Now onto the fun.

    1. Thanks. I cut out a stencil of a very friendly witch and used it instead of the monster last year for our magic party. Pumpkin carving stencils are great for this project.

  27. Hi
    I'm trying to make chocolate curls on a cake. Seen a site which said to use chocolate clay rolled out, cut to strips then curl and leave to dry......looked so easy but I can't seem to get the chocolate to roll? It doesn't seem dry enough. On the site it rolled like fondant. Any tips? Thanks do much

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, your modeling chocolate should feel just like fondant and roll just like fondant. Try reading all my troubleshooting tips for modeling chocolate here, http://www.hungryhappenings.com/p/chocolate-making-tips.html. I've never had a batch that I couldn't roll out because it was too wet. I've definitely had batches that were too dry and crumbly though. If that were the case, you'd knead in some more corn syrup, but if it's just too wet, you'd need to add more chocolate, but that can be tricky. Read my Chocolate Making Tips tutorial, see if that helps, if not let me know and I'll try to help your further.

  70. OOO I love this post on facebook. I am all about decorative recipes!!! I saw that picture above on this page of the 'hand' buger I am going to make that for my kiddos soon. Thanks for the idea! My ideas tend to be an addition to something I've seen. Like a mummy pizza bagel I turned into Mummies Unwrapped...making an unwrapped mummy body from fettuccine alfredo and I add mummy guts in the middle of it like grilled sliced chicken and green beans or corn. Its so funny hearing the kids say, "More mummy guts please!" I would love to see all the ideas in your book.

  72. I love decorative recipes! I am going to make the hand burger recipe after seeing the picture above. Thanks for the idea. :) My favorite decorative recipes are the healthier ones. I love sugar too, but I'd prefer the ones that are actually a meal instead of just only desserts on the table. So far this year I've made the kids mummy dogs with czar salad and prospectors teeth, bloody fingers, and mummies unwrapped.
