Dream Valley Challenge 43 - Halloween


My littl'un, Charlie, and I have had sooo much fun with this weeks challenge at Dream Valley :-) There was no way Charlie was going to leave me in peace to make a card this week so I decided to make my DT offering a little more kid friendly!

Our theme for this challenge is:


Charlie loves helping me bake and it's been ages since I've made "proper" cakes (since I joined Slimming World three months ago I've lost 1 stone 3 pounds!!!) I took inspiration from some cute little biscuits a friend showed me at The Decorated Cookie.  So these are our spooky googly eyed halloween cakes:

Some close-ups.....

The purple and green icing are coloured ready to roll stuff from Hobbycraft and then we drew the eyes on with writing icing. So simple but very cute :-) Unfortunately, I don't think there'll be any left for Halloween so I might just have to make some more!!! What a shame :-)

Anyway, don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley for the fab spooky creations from the rest of the DT!

Love 'n' hugs,

These are too cute! Congrats to you and Charlie for a simply delicious 'make'!

Congrats also on your weight loss! That is seriously impressive, my lovely! Since joining Slimming World in June I have lost (ta-da!) 5 and a half pounds! I'm not very good at counting Syns....

Have a great week!

love Mags B x

Yummm I was admiring these over at the DV blog! Wonder how many you have left? There'd be zero if I was there, Slimming World or not! Congrats on your weightloss ... took me about 10 months to lose 1st 12lb through SW (mainly because I like cakes too much LOL)

Those cakes do look yummy! Well done on your weight loss. I joined Slimming World a few months ago, I've lost 1 stone 5 pounds so far. Fingers crossed I get my next half stone award tomorrow.
