    scarey cake for halloween 4th Oct 04 at 4:41 PM
    I used to make this for my kids at !halloween and they loved it

    make a square sponge cake

    slice the top off fairly thinly

    cut a coffin shape !(I know!!) out of the bottom deep part

    hollow it out

    make bones out of icing paste

    scatter them inside

    put the lid on !you make out of the top you cut off

    ice !RIP ! on the top you can cover it in chocolate if you want but I never did

    put on cake board or plate

    collect some dead leaves from garden !rinse them off

    place round the cake

    the kids love it

    they eat the bones and scare the life out of each other doing it

    lol

    Not a cake, but a food related game for kids halloween parties. I remember this from when I was a kid.

    Kids sat in a circle, lights off (needs to be really dark).

    Tell a spooky story worked around a person walking in a wood, found haunted house, went in (creak), went upstairs, found trunk in a room, in trunk (pass objects around or walk around and let them feel them):

    A finger (shapped carrot)
    An eye ball (Boiled egg without the shell)
    A Brain (Cauliflower with all the leaves stripped off)
    Finally he pulled out:

    A still beating heart!!!!!! (Jelly, in a freezer bag pulled into heart shape with your hand underneath, pulse hand like a heart beating)

    Don't forget to clear the food away before turning the lights back on. - it scares them even more if they don't know how you did it

    It's great fun - keeps the kids entertained for ages if you can weave a good long ghost story.

    Galtizz, I love it ;D what a great idea.

    We play a game called 'Pick The Bogie'
    Sit 2 teams of equal number of players in a line opposite each other.
    Give the first in line on each team a bowl of green jelly with green grapes in the bottom.
    Each child has a plastic 'witches finger' and they then have to fish out a grape ( or a specified number) before handing the bowl along to the next person.
    The first team either to get out all the grapes or first to get to the end of the line is the winner.
    Beware though, green jelly stains!

    we have made fairy cakes with green (lime) and red (strawberry) jam blobs in the middle, and coloured the sponge with green food colouring. the look disgusting but are quite yum.

    ypu could make a jelly using the inside of a pumpkin as the mould, and it would still be ok to use for a pumpkin pie or soup afterwards

    Someone also mentioned somewhere but no time to look, filling the marigolds with water and freezing to make a hand.

    This is also good in the ADULT punch and if you take some satsumas and carve out a face pumkin style (or turnip if you like) you can then pop the satsumas in the punch for flavour.

    Just came across this thread and thought, as it's that time of year again, it would be a good idea to "resurrect" it
