Hey Candy Lovers,
With only two weeks to Halloween – one of our favourite times of the year – we’ve been filling our shelves with some ghoulish goodies and organising a couple of truly superb competitions. Watch our Facebook page later this week for a chance to win a gorgeous vampire teeth necklace from Me & Zena, and at the end of the month we’re partnering with our friends over at Truffle Shuffle for a competition prize pack that will blow your mind! (Quite literally, so make sure you have a sponge handy).
For now though, as you may know, Cybercandy love weird stuff. At the end of last week I came across some of the coolest and weirdest food art that is just perfect for Halloween. Check this out, here are my top five picks (those of a nervous disposition may want to look away…….now!)
Halloween Meat Head via That’s Nerdalicious made with a plastic skull, a ‘red jello surprise’ in the middle and lots of cooked ham or cold cuts. Who’s for a spooky Halloween table centerpiece? We are!
Hand-carved by the gruesomely talented artists at Villafane Studios this handsome chap is just one of many Halloween pumpkins in their gallery. Unfortunately, these are only available to purchase in the US, however they do have a non-US webstore full of pumpkin carving kits, tutorial DVDs and other stuff of much coolness for the spooky season.
Fancy a spider on your pancake first thing in the morning? We found this awesome recipe in the Not Martha archives for fluffy pumpkin pancakes with extra orange and extra spider, just for good measure.
Eating chocolate pudding has never been more ghoulish! We found these on Pinterest and unfortunately don’t have a link back to the original creator, but we’d like to him or her major Cybercandy kudos for such a fantastic idea! Why not try creating your own and send us a link so we can feature your creations on our Facebook page.
If you’re going to make sausage rolls for your Halloween bash, then these little guys are an awesome party idea. Mummy sausages wrapped in pastry – another delicious Pinterest find. Although, I’m not sure I could actually eat them….

’til next week, keep being sweet!
