Halloween Fun Pack From Flora Butter : Review...


Big thanks to Flora for sending us a Halloween fun pack to keep the children entertained this week. 


We have had a great time, dressing up, making cakes, playing games and getting ready for Halloween. 


My daughter was only saying the other day 'mum I need a new Halloween costume' and this witches costume was the first thing she pulled out of the box.


The first cakes we made were these yummy Banana cupcakes.

So yummy, I've added the link to the recipe so you can try them too...

I let my son make these as he was looking forward to making some cakes...

They tasted amazing!!

We can't wait to make these again..


On Friday we had lots of fun carving our Pumpkins.



This was my favourite cake we made. 

A Halloween cake that looks like a graveyard. 

The first cake I made I burnt.

So I made another one and we shared it after Halloween. 

No worries as it was worth weighting for.

Here is the recipe for Halloween Cake...


Jelly worms were a little harder to master...

Maybe next time they will turn out perfect!?!


My daughter loved the colour me in pumpkin...

For lots more cool ideas I have shared a link to the fun pack so you can download them all --- the fun pack here...
