I was once a beautiful and fair lady. Somebody was jealous of my beauty and grilled me to death! Not only that, they eat my flesh!!!!!”
This is a special post on Halloween that will be celebrated on Western countries on 31 October 2013. Being an Asian, I have never celebrated Halloween for all my past years. We do have festivals to pay respects to the death like the Chin Ming festivals. Therefore, I am rather unsure how Western countries really celebrate Halloween and what are their traditions. What I knew from watching television shows was that kids went house by house having some trick or treating activities and house owners will give them sweets or candy for their “visits”.
Being a blogger who have joined several blog hop parties, I can sense that how big Halloween is celebrated in these countries. I just want to join the fun and suddenly it come across my mind of baking some marshmallows. This post is not actually a recipe and but some baking art work that I am rather poor at and I am sure those who are interested will be able to do a much better design than me.
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Some round cylindrical shaped marshmallow candy
Some baking paper
Some honey for sticking
STEPS OF PREPARATION
In a big baking tray, put a sheet of baking paper. Roughly draw the shape of the hand. Use a scissor to cut the marshmallows in the shape of finger nails.
Put a bit of honey and stick it to baking paper following the shape of the hand. Bake in the oven at 150 degree Celsius for 15-20 minutes. When cooled, cut away the baking paper following the candy shape.
Note the increased in size of the marshmallows as the baking progresses. The sizes of the marshmallows will reduce once it is cool. Depending on how horror you want your creations to be, your can monitor the colour of the marshmallow.
How do you serve, put it in a plate for your “guest”!
If you want it to be even more scary, have some strawberry sauce!
So, is this edible? Yes, it is very nice and extremely crispy and you would not want to stop at one piece only.
They eat with the papers? No, it can easily peel off from the baking paper.
What if they don’t want to have the candy in my house, what shall I do? Well, just pack it, hang it in the door for them and wish them Happy Halloween and STAY SAFE!
Well, this is my creation and I knew the first picture is rather scary as on of my Google Plus friends is commenting, sending shivers down her spine. For the second batch, I have tone down the horror by baking it and packaging in a less scary manner! Hope you like the post today. Cheers and have a nice day.
