Halloween

Have a couple of hours free before we have to leave for a birthday party. I have been rather 'silent' the last few days. Just been tired and not wanting to do much. But we were invited to a Halloween party last evening at a friend's, and I was busy baking on Friday, both for the party and also baking a little cake for my grandma's birthday. We couldn't make it to her birthday dinner as I had already agreed to the Halloween party weeks ago. So, sorry Ah Ma. Hope you had a good dinner.

So yesterday saw me decorating the cakes and preparing a dish of stir fried pasta as it was a potluck party and everyone was to bring a dish.

This is for Ah Ma - a simply decorated chocolate cake.

These were the cuppies that I decorated with help from my little princess, as well as the 'big' helpers - the ready icings, gummies, and sweeties. I got ideas from a kids' cake decorating book which had all these lovely designs. Also made little bags for 'trick or treat' filled with eyeballs, and gummy worms, plus some rice crispies marshmallow melts which I had made earlier.


~ Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I'm gonna eat some worms. Big, fat juicy ones, long thin slimy ones, itsy bitsy, teeny weeny worms. First you bite their heads off, then you suck their guts out, see how they wriggle and they squirm... ~


Thank you Sam & your extended family for inviting us to join your gathering. Princess had loads of fun, especially the dancing part, but she still says the dance part was 'boring' as she preferred the games. Thanks Uncle A for being her wonderful partner. You rock, by the way. ;)

Before we left home, hubby was asking, erm, what is this party for again? I said 'halloween', and he said, 'oh, any excuse to have a party'. Haha, I agree. We don't celebrate Halloween but Eurasians being Eurasians love a good time and a good party, so even though we were all Christians there, it was all for the fun of it, getting to dress up and have a good time. The food was good too, especially the curry chicken, oh so shiok, with the baguettes.

Thanks for a wonderful time, and to the organizers who set everything up so well, I'd like to say 'great job!'. Thanks also to a talented Sam who so kindly sewed and donated the halloween bags for all the kids for their treats.


I have to say you (Sam) chose the perfect location for the party, and it sure was spooky with the resident bats flying around, and not to mention the cats which I hope G was not joking, but she said 8 live there??? The bats don't spook me! It's the cats.

Oh for the love of food! said...

Wow! what an excellent halloween party that was! Your little spooky cupcakes are soooo adorable! my kids would have LOVED to be there. I don't bother much about Halloween, my sis organizes smashing halloween parties for my girls and her son. Last year, she even made a video for me to see what was going on at the party. She had costumes and make up for her and the kids, a real pumpkin Jack o ' lantern, skeletons hanging everywhere, the whole works! This year's party is this Saturday and the kids are so looking forward to it!
Your cake for your Ah Ma is lovely too, you're so thoughtful. Why have you been silent? Wanna talk? you have my e-mail..
