What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…
Having rocked the ekiden, it was time for the Bakemasters pumpkin carving party, one of my favourite traditions! Actually, this is how Bakemasters began. Two years ago, my first girls night that coincided with hubby’s Toastmasters club was to celebrate Halloween with pumpkin carving. I made pumpkin themed pizza and pumpkin blondies, and used a pumpkin stencil for the first time.
This year I wanted to try something different. I tried a version of this eyeball pasta. I did it with spinach lasagne noodles, chicken mince, spinach, and mushrooms. But we ate it before I could snap a pictures. I also made some Halloween themed pumpkins:
The scarecrows were inspired by Sweet Little Thang and I found the pumpkins over on BHG. I made them with an orange velvet cupcake and a cream cheese frosting – yum. Food made, it was time for the main event – pumpkin carving. We picked our stencils, scooped out the innards, and started carving. Here are our masterpieces:
And yes, I’m a pirate – cuz of course there were costumes =D What do you think? Do you still carve pumpkins? What’s your favourite Fall tradition? Leave a comment and start the conversation.
