abooja – I am in the process of cleaning out my freezers to prep for holiday baking and I don’t have any caramel – but now I wish I did!

I made a Red Velvet cake from Cooks’ Country Magazine for a work birthday today. Her birthday is actually Halloween, so I tarted it up with ‘blood’ and gummy eyeballs:



It was a LOT redder than it looks in the picture. I’m not a big fan of Red Velvet. To me, it has an off-putting aftertaste. Possibly the dye since I’ve heard that some people are sensitive to the flavor. But it was a request and everyone loved it.

My mother always requests Halloween cookies. These are fun, but take too much time to be profitable :smile:

Those are just beautiful! Great piping skills. I need to start practicing!! Happy Halloween!

Thanks! I love Halloween.

Claire Fontaine from the Lenotre Pastrymaking book.

Layers of ladyfinger biscuit cake soaked in orange punch and vanilla bavarian-type cream with bits of candied orange in it. Topped with slices of candied orange and then a clear glaze on top.

Sorry I was so excited that I finally downloaded a picture that I forgot to mention the flavors.

Here they are....

First row to the left is Plain ganache with Peruvian Salt sprinkled on top

Next row is Kona Coffee Truffles with a coffee bean on top

Next row is Cherry Truffle made with Washington Cherry Extract with a dried cherry on top

Last row is 2 Cream De Menth Truffles (it's the one with a gold/green razzle dazzle dust on it)

and the other one is a Sereno Chile Truffle with a pink razzle dazzle dust on it. I dusted them

so I could tell which flavor is what.

So many wonderful looking (and tasting) sweets lately. But I have to say, I love the little Mummy cupcakes best! The child in me speaks. :smile:

Little strange, I don't normally find myself kicking it here with the bakers :-p but it's 4 AM, I couldn't sleep, so a few hours ago I figured I needed some bread or something for the morning, so I made a batch of brioche - and forgot my loaf pans were elsewhere so I figured some smaller variation would work best. Plus I didn't have much else going on this early, so of course I took a picture lol


Everyone's stuff looks great. Making me a little jealous with all the cupcakes and cakes and whatnot, I just don't have the energy to do that sort of thing much, plus desserts have never really been my strong point. I think i'll stick to my breads :laugh:
