Although I love Halloween and will be attending a great party tonight in an apartment with a terrace overlooking the NYC Village Halloween parade, I am a bit sad about the state of my blog this month. October was a freight train whizzing by and it left all my fabulous Halloween baking ideas in the dust. They all will just have to wait until next year. BOO-hoo.
I did do a huge amount of generic Halloween baking this month for parties and events, just didn't have time the spare time to photograph and post everything.
For my own Halloween kickoff cocktail party I made Halloween themed food and treats. All I have to show for it is this picture of a fleshless face dip.
These BOOmeringues are also from my party. They are a bit wonky and I was hesitant to post them but I had nothing else Halloweeny and the visual pun was perfect for the theme of this post.
For the meringues I used a recipe from the very creative The Art of Being Perfect. Instead of piping upwards to make standing ghosts. I made boomerang shapes.
Enough whining and onto the posts this month that turned my frown upside down:
