-- Happy Halloween --

Happy Halloween!!!

The boys went off to a four hour Halloween party at martial arts last weekend, they all love dressing up and I secretly love getting arty with the face paints.


Sunday we got stuck into carving the pumpkins that we picked up from the pumpkin patch.
Jon and Ru attacked the massive white one and the boys all did their own, we're going to have to buy Alex a new pumpkin today as his had gone a little mouldy.


I turned mine into a vase and bought some autumnal flowers from Tesco's.
I also bought some bunting which I've been able to cut up into three different banners as it was so long and I've popped it up over the fireplace, in the hallway and in the kitchen.


I also found a recipe for Pumpkin spice latte cupcakes.
I wasn't too keen on them to start with, but the taste grew on me and I rather enjoyed them.
Even the boys loved them!


It's not really Halloween without some Krispy Kreme doughnuts.


I'm not sure if we are going trick or treating this year as Noah has parents evening on Thursday and we're away on Friday so probably we'll just get some Halloween themed snacks in and watch some family-friendly Halloween films after school.


Halloween is not complete without the yearly Halloween snap chat filter fun!


Hope you all have a fun Halloween.

FLUFFNUT Cupcakes #NumNomsCrazyCreation


We've been getting creative in the kitchen with NumNoms for their latest food campaign 
#NumNomsCrazyCreation


We’ve seen the Cronut (donut and croissant combination), a genius idea, which brought together two of our favourite pastry items into one amazing desert. 
Next it was the turn of green tea cake, for the slightly more health conscious, which saw a refreshing cake born from a popular hot beverage. 
More recently, Marks and Spencer introduced the Croloaf, a loaf of bread make out of croissants 


When thinking of ideas for our creations, we sat down with all our NumNoms on the table and picked out our favourites.....

The over all winners were ....
Cherry Ann (doughnut type)
Softy Mallow (marshmallow type)
Nana Heart (Candy Num)

So from them we decided to make......

FLUFFNUT CUPCAKES!


RECIPE:

Mini Ring Doughnuts,
Fluff Spread
Love hearts.

The no bake cupcakes, that are just perfect for doing with the little ones.
Beware you can get rather sticky!!!


The end result was pretty epic!
They looked really sweet and tasted amazing, I could have eaten all of them!

They were easy and super quick to put together and everyone got involved.

The boys and myself were all really impressed with our creative make and I know it will be requested the next time I go shopping.
