As I've already written, I prefer to celebrate Halloween at home. This time I also made a party for friends. But it was my first Halloween, when I cooked so much thematic dishes.
First of all I made "witch's fingers". I tried to bake them 4 times before to get perfect shape. For these cookies I used flour, eggs, sugar, baking powder, almond and jam. The main secret was about "nails". When cookies were ready, almond just fell down. I added some jam to "fingers" and sticked almond.
The most disgusting and tasty dish was "earth in a cup". There were several layers. I put cocoa pudding in cups, then added marmalade bones and crumbs from chocolate cookies. It looked realistic.
I made a pie with dark cocoa pastry and marmalade eyes and bones.
I also baked a fish with dark bread inside. A forcemeat I fried with tomato paste, which looked like a blood, and then hided some "witch's fingers" inside.
I filled syringes with cherry jam, so they looked a bit scary. We have one "normal" dish. It was baked pumpkin.
