I wanted a biscuit that was not too sweet to go with all the icing on these Mummies – I’m determined that this year, my girls won’t feel left out at Halloween but will also manage not to eat as much processed, sugary rubbish. Well, that’s the plan so far anyway!
The ideal biscuit is the digestive – Oaty and not too much sugar. I made my own in less than 20 minutes but obviously used shop bought if you need to be even quicker.
My featured Bake of the Week this week, comes from Jibber Jabber with her Cut & Come Again Cake – I love the idea behind this cake in that its all about friendship. Ness shared this cake at her local Clandestine Cake club (Which reminds me I haven’t been to one near me for ages! Must remedy that asap). This cake can be be prepared and baked in less than an hour – all in case of unexpected friends popping in.
1. Totally divine Black Forest Gateau from the super talented Eileen, Et Speaks From Home

7. Beautiful Chocolate Apples (even with the help of the children) from Et Speaks From Home.
8. I am so tempted to see what the combination of these flavours taste like in Winnie’s Apple Tart with Nuts – There’s Caramel & Cinnamon in there too! The overall look is a work of beauty.
9. Another beautiful bake and quite a light one is Winnie’s Oatmeal Lemon Bars – I love using Oats in cooking so am definitely bookmarking this one!

14. Reminding me that I have never yet tried a Pumpkin Spice Latte in a well known coffee shop is Baking Queen 74. I would love to try her Slow Cooker Spiced Pumpkin Cake though!
15. What a great alternative base for a cheesecake to use Peanut Butter – This Cheesecake from ET Speaks From Home sounds divine.
16. Truly beautiful and inspired flavours from Lancashire Food with her Fig, Yogurt & Rosemary Loaf Cake – Those figs are just a stunning addition!
