Halloween Meringue Ghost & Cookies

This Halloween was full of fun and baking. I’ve tried making something that I’ve never done before this year. Since the ghost has been my Halloween favorite so I decided to make Halloween Meringue Ghost.  This was my first time making meringue but it was a fun experience.  There were so many key things to watch out for making a great meringue.  How the eggs whites were beat, the type of sugar used, the duration of baking and decoration.  Even though it didn’t come perfectly but they definitely look festive.  After the meringue ghosts were cooled, I used the edible pen to draw the facial features.  I found piping the ghosts and drawing were the most fun part of making the ghosts.

“Meringue ghost in a coffee bath.”  I was wondering what would happen if I put a meringue ghost in my coffee.  So I dropped one in the cup and it looked kinda cute. =)

What’s in the cupcake jar?

I walked into the store and saw the cupcake jar and just couldn’t believe my eyes with what I saw.  “Holy cow, it’s a Cupcake Cookie Jar & it’s soooo cute!!!”  As soon as I picked up the cupcake jar, I paused for a few second, asking myself “Do I really need one?”  Then I quickly put it right back and walked away from the baking aisle.

You would wonder what happened.  I think most of you are going to be right.  Yes, I went back to the baking aisle and put the cupcake jar in my shopping cart.  I quickly paid so I won’t change mind again. =)  I was so excited and wanted to put something in the cookie jar.  So I decided to make some Halloween cookies since it’s coming up soon.

It’s candy corn cookies with orange zest in it and it tasted flavorful.  Halloween is less than a week away and it’s a perfect time to be festive.  I couldn’t be happier.  =)
