How to Make a Superhero Birthday Cake!

How to make an easy superhero birthday cake

 

Blogtober17 is drawing to a close, the topic a few days ago was Villains and Superheros. I wasn’t sure how to approach this topic even though I have a superhero obsessed little boy! Then I remembered for his birthday way back in February I made him a Superhero birthday cake and it was relatively simple to make.

I thought I would share with you my easy peezy recipe for some Halloween Inspired Popcorn. A perfect treat to go with my suggested Horror Com Movies or my Not so Scary Kids Movies!

Halloween would not be complete without a pumpkin. Often though, as we carve them into Jack-o laterns, the innards are just strewn into the bin to rot. What a waste! I have been guilty of this too. It wasn’t until last year and I decided to grab a cookbook and make Pumpkin Pie, that I realised howdeliciouss it really was! So this year I really wanted to post a Pumpkin Pie recipe so you too can use every last bit of your pumpkin!

 

Now, unfortunatley with a  new baby I just haven’t had the time (or energy) to experiment in the kitchen. However, one of my fellow bloggers has! Donna from Bobsy’s Mum has very kindly offered to Guest Post for me. Donna, a busy mum herself, shares her own recipes on her blog which she describes as mostly super kid friendly and offers advice on how to save time and money and most importantly enjoy cooking when you are busy!… Read More
