Amongst all the Halloween excitement, one thing I can't resist is making lots and lots of food. No, no, not just any food. Pinterest and tumblr inspired Halloween food *smirk*.

Jack Skellington Cupcakes

You will need:
  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix ( I used a betty crocker brownie one )
  • 1 egg
  • 40ml vegetable oil
  • 75ml water
  • fluffy white icing ( betty crocker vanilla )
  • black gel writing icing
  • oreos

1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, eggs, oil and water. Mix until it's completely blended with no lumps, and a dark brown colour.



2. Divide the batter among all the cupcake liners you can fit, and put in the oven for around 25 minutes, or until they are ready ( put a knife through one, if the knife is clean when you pull it out, it's baked ). Let cool.


3. Ice all the cakes. Use the black gel to make two large eyes. Next, pipe on two short lines for a nose. Finally, pipe a long line across the bottom of the cake and add dashes for the mouth.

4. If you're like me, you'll only have bought one tube of writing icing and run out of it. If this happens, you can cheat and pop some oreos on the remaining cakes.



Orange Sherbet Sorbet


You will need:
  • oranges ( or lemons if you've run out, like me )
  • orange sherbet/ice-cream
  • mango sherbet/ice-cream. Luckily for me, at asda they had a mango and chocolate orange tub of ice-cream.





1. Slice off the top of an orange, and get rid of the insides, or make juice.
2. Put the orange and mango sherbet inside, until the top of the orange is flat enough to replace the top.
3. Serve immediately and enjoy!

'Eyeballs'


You will need:
  • babybel cheeses
  • black olives
  • ketchup
  • red food colouring/icing
  • a paintbrush



1. Paint the veins/blood vessels ( !? ) on the cheese to make it look more like an eye.
2. Slice open an olive, and using a very thin piece from the middle, place on top of the cheese.
3. Fill the center of the olive with ketchup. If you're not a ketchup fan, leave the center of the olive empty.

So, all my favourite quick, easy, yummy Halloween food recipes in one post. Lucky you *wink*. Let me know if you're going to make any of them!
