Cavalock and The Halloween Cookies of Horror

It's almost Halloween and I thought I'll showcase some of the treats that left my tiny apartment kitchen over the weekend. I have only been to one Halloween party my entire life and that was an office event like a decade ago. Bet no one can guess who or what I came as*. Anyway, I thought these cookies came out looking pretty cool. And no, I didn't bake them, I just snap all the pix.

Every cookie was individually painted by hand and the tags were all cut, pasted and labelled the night before. They were made for sale for a little kid's school Halloween party. Hope they all like it.  You can check out some other goodies that left the kitchen here and here, and don't forget we got some Christmas fruitcakes for sale here too.

Well, I got nothing planned for Halloween nite so I'll probably play a solo game of Elder Sign. It's a great board game that's based on the horror stories by H.P. Lovecraft. Or maybe I'll just watch this year's Simpsons Halloween Treehouse of Horror, yah it's been sitting in my iPad for almost a week now.

Since we on the topic of baking from home, how's a little flashback to some of the more interesting bakes that have since left our kitchen to satisfied friends and ex-colleagues over the last year or two.

* I was Dilbert from the comic strip. Easiest costume ever, just a white office shirt, black pants and glasses with a curled-up tie. Which made it all the more unusual as I'm always in jeans and t-shirts in the office.
