Bake off, Halloween Special

A very good evening and warm welcome to my Halloween Post!

This year we decided to celebrate Halloween a little differently. In past years we’d have a Halloween party, fancy dress (of course), and a night out drinking.

This year was slightly more relaxed but no doubt just as entertaining.

We also watched the brilliant, BettleJuice at the cinema for a one off screening. My friend told about about this a few weeks ago and I booked the tickets there and then. You can’t beat a classic. We also dressed up at home, whilst drinking heaverly and watching Halloween films… What more could you want?

So, this evening… We mixed it up a bit.

The final of The Great British Bake off aired last night, so I decided that Halloween night, we would have a get together and watch in suspense on channel 4 catch up.

I asked each guest to bring their home baked goods. The delicious dishes included, shortbread, Welsh cakes, 2 varieties of sausage rolls, sweet potato pie and rice crispy cakes. It was quite the fest!

And yes… I gave a handshake

I went a little rogue with the recipe as couldn’t find one I liked so made it my own. I made sweet and sticky orange buns for the occasion. And not to toot my own horn, but they were bloody tasty!

Countless cups of tea and great company made my Halloween perfect.

How was your Halloween and do you have any traditions?

  1. I’ve never had any traditions when it comes to Halloween, because depending on what day it lands on, it is just a normal day to any other.

    When Halloween has fell on a weekend, I once got it tub of sweets in, just in case anyone kids knocked on the door, to join in the fun that way. So that was good, to see their costumes. But not many came round. It’s not like how it was when I was a kid, where you find lots out and about. But although it seems like that, there are many that dress up their properties for Halloween in last few years.

    As for you watching Beetlejuice. Good choice. I’ve lost count how many times I have seen this film one time.

    1. Bettlejuice is one of my all time favorites. I’m so thankful that I saw it on the big screen. As an adult, I’ve always associated Halloween as a occasion to dress up, decorate the house and go party. One day when I have a house I’m excited to give sweets out to children too 🙂 x

  2. That sounds like so much fun! I love GBBO, but we get the seasons so much later than they initially air over there! I just recently binged the previous 2 seasons on Netflix a few months ago and now I’m in serious withdrawal 😔.

  3. It all looks delicious!! I took my daughter out for trick-or-treating like we do every year. She’s 11 now so she wasn’t as into it as other years. It makes me sad that she’s growing up so fast!
