Halloween Bake-a-thon!

Its the 29th October, and today is halloween baking day! On the menu is a batch of cupcakes for a kids party, my third paid order, general halloween cupcakes and gingerbread cookies :D

The first lot of cakes are in the oven, and the batter is ready to go for more cupcakes when they come out! All in hand and I'll make gingerbread with my little helper tonight. Photos of cupcakes and decorations to follow!

I could scream, really, there's a strange smell about my cupcakes and I'm not happy with them. I'll have to make a  fresh batch this evening.

Cupcakes, Birthdays and Biscuits.

My client finally got her cupcakes, and her husband declared he was going to divorce her and marry me instead! High praise indeed, but no wedding bells yet, I have enough of everyone elses love lives to deal with without my own!

I've been commissioned for a few more cakes, including a set of cupcakes for wednesday, for some of my collegues at work, including trying to make one that looks like a sheep... that one may have to wait until I'm more focused. Several of my collegues have complained they've not tried my cakes yet, so I'm trying to get them in for when they are, but its proving difficult.

I've decided that this week is biscuit week, and possibly bread week. I'm feeling more savoury this week, so some fresh bread and savoury snacks would be a good idea. I think I'll make some ANZAC biscuits, and debate what savoury foods would be good to make.

Planning for halloween baking has also begun, alongside planning the menu for my bonfire night party.
