It’s Autumn, the leaves are falling and the days are getting shorter. But the only thing on your mind is the fact that it’s nearly Halloween! On October 31, young and old alike will be able to have a ball scaring each other! It’s the perfect opportunity for getting together with family or friends and serving up some horribly fun and terrifyingly delicious dishes.
Between the cooking and the make-up, it’s set to be a busy day!
This year’s Halloween falls on a Saturday, and you’re determined to make the most of it by having as much fun as possible!
Firstly, what to cook?
When it comes to food, you can choose between Crep’Party, for sweet pancakes decorated with chocolate spread or strawberry jam to create terrifying monster faces; pumpkin cupcakes topped with chocolate vampire bats; or bleeding witches’ fingers - small sausages or Frankfurters wrapped in strips of puff pastry, decorated with split almonds and glazed with a mixture of beaten egg yolk and a drop of milk. Then simply put your Easy Grip dish in a hot oven (180°C) for approximately 20 minutes. Once cooled, you can dip your fake fingers in ketchup to make them look even more revolting!
Needless to say, you can’t go and frighten the neighbours without first getting made-up!
It’s now possible to get organic make-up that’s perfect for children’s skin. For the more artistic amongst you, why not try a brightly coloured “Calavera” or Mexican ceremonial skull? And if your creative skills aren’t quite up to that, go for animal faces (tigers, lions etc.), monsters, and pumpkin-heads – all you need is some orange, black and green and you’re done!
