Share your fun Halloween edible crafts and recipes and you could WIN.

All my readers are welcome to submit a picture of their edible Halloween creations
in my Halloween Themed Cuisine link party.

Plus you can enter for chance to win a signed copy of my book, Hungry Halloween,
 and a great assortment of Halloween decorating supplies. 

Seeing photos from readers who have been inspired by my projects is often the highlight of my week. When I see an attachment to an e-mail in my inbox and I open it to find something as cool as the snack cakes that Barbara and her son Josh created (pictured above,) I get giddy with excitement. 
It is so amazing to see how you all re-create my projects and it’s even more incredible to see how you transform them. Jo and Sue are two super talented ladies who live in a small town in Canada. When they wanted to make my Beaker Twinkie, but couldn’t find any Twinkies in their town, they got creative and used a hot dog bun. They tell the hilarious tale of their Beaker Expedition, here on their blog.
One of the coolest re-creations I have seen was also made by this duo. Their Medusa cheese ball based on my Spa Party Appetizer, just blew me away.
Whenever a reader shares a picture with me, I share it with all of you in my Readers’ Gallery and oftentimes on Facebook too. I am proud to have inspired so many of you to go have some fun in the kitchen. Above is just a small selection of fun images from the gallery.

I know many of you have purchased my book, Hungry Halloween, and I thank you!!!! For those of you who haven’t, I thought I’d take this opportunity to share a handful of images from the book to entice you. I know this is a shameless plug, but a girls got to make a living somehow! If you share this picture anywhere, please add a link to my book, here.

Now onto the fun.

    Your projects are really inspiring and always so well explained and illustrated. The attention to detail is awesome. I'm thinking about modifying the portrait of a monster dip design to a pumpkin or something very friendly for a party for little ones.

    Yes, I am going to decorate mini pies to look like eyes. Thanks for the idea.

      Ha, I know what you mean. My mind is already drifting to Thanksgiving and Christmas. I need to focus though, as we are really going to have a huge crowd at our party this year, and I haven't even finalized our menu. Aaack! Thanks for adding some of your recipe pictures!

    I'm trying to make chocolate curls on a cake. Seen a site which said to use chocolate clay rolled out, cut to strips then curl and leave to dry……looked so easy but I can't seem to get the chocolate to roll? It doesn't seem dry enough. On the site it rolled like fondant. Any tips? Thanks do much

    • says

      Hi, your modeling chocolate should feel just like fondant and roll just like fondant. Try reading all my troubleshooting tips for modeling chocolate here, I've never had a batch that I couldn't roll out because it was too wet. I've definitely had batches that were too dry and crumbly though. If that were the case, you'd knead in some more corn syrup, but if it's just too wet, you'd need to add more chocolate, but that can be tricky. Read my Chocolate Making Tips tutorial, see if that helps, if not let me know and I'll try to help your further.

      I am really sorry, but I have found that there are just too many different laws in other countries and it is so difficult to host a worldwide contest and keep it all legal. I sure wish I could allow everyone to join in on the fun.

    You know I am a huge, GIGANTIC fan…so many ideas have been inspired by you, it is hard to even think of them all!!! It was fun to link up what I Have posted so far this Halloween season…time doesn't allow for all the ideas to be done but that's ok, maybe I will get around to a few more. Your bat Swiss cake rolls have been a request by my daughter for the past couple of days so I think I better make those :) THANKS for hosting.

  20. says

    I know we can't win but we wanted to share some of our Halloween creations in your Halloween Collection.
    Thank you SO much for featuring our Beaker and Medusa in your post :)

    This is my first time on your site, i found you totaly by mistake, but talk about a good mistake! I have 3 year old twin boys and they love food that looks like something fun. I cant wait to share your site with my family and friends. Now my boys and i are heading to the kitchen to make a few of your creations right now. Thanks for giving us a new project to do today. You Rock! and so does your site!

  22. says

    Number 71 is my submission. I incorrectly assumed it was asking my name, not the name of the treat. Is there any way for you to change it to "Monster cake pops"? Thanks

  23. says

    Hey Beth, great giveaway! I was just popping in to let you know I'm featuring this post, your blog, and your book on my blog tomorrow for part of my 31 days of fall fun via pinterest :)

    OOO I love this post on facebook. I am all about decorative recipes!!! I saw that picture above on this page of the 'hand' buger I am going to make that for my kiddos soon. Thanks for the idea! My ideas tend to be an addition to something I've seen. Like a mummy pizza bagel I turned into Mummies Unwrapped…making an unwrapped mummy body from fettuccine alfredo and I add mummy guts in the middle of it like grilled sliced chicken and green beans or corn. Its so funny hearing the kids say, "More mummy guts please!" I would love to see all the ideas in your book.

    I love decorative recipes! I am going to make the hand burger recipe after seeing the picture above. Thanks for the idea. :) My favorite decorative recipes are the healthier ones. I love sugar too, but I'd prefer the ones that are actually a meal instead of just only desserts on the table. So far this year I've made the kids mummy dogs with czar salad and prospectors teeth, bloody fingers, and mummies unwrapped.
