Happy Halloween!!!

Today is one of DS's favorite days of the year, trick or treat! Before doing the rounds in the village this evening, we'll have some of DS's friends over for a make-up session and Halloween tea party. Creepy muffins, ghoulish sweets and spooky cookies are the order of the day.

Boo!!! Having slightly 'aged' from yesterday's look ;-) Good thing is, it's much easier to breathe! Sarves and accessories as yesterday.

Cup cakes recipe as in kid's cupcakes post, only with different colored icing and decoration

Halloween cookies

125 gr butter, unsalted and softened
60 gr sugar
1 large egg
2 tbsp liquid honey
2 tsp finely chopped lemon zest
310 gr flour
1/2 tsp ground ginger

Mix butter and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix on medium speed until well combined. Add lemon zest. With mixer on low speed, add ginger and flour in two batches, mixing until just incorporated. Form the dough into a ball, wrap with cling film and leave for a minimum of two hours in the fridge. Roll out the dough in between two layers of freezer bags. Cut out cookie shapes. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and bake for approx. 10min.

220 gr Icing sugar
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
Beat icing sugar with the lemon juice and add food coloring to your liking. Spread on biscuits with a spatula. Decorate with pearls, contrasting icing, sweets etc.
