Women in Horror Month: Terrifying Treats

Phew! Well, after a month of movie reviews, short stories, fun makes and more, I think we all need a treat to keep our energy up.

I had planned to make something from ‘A Zombie Ate My Cupcake‘ by Lily Vanilli but the toddler decided she wanted biscuits instead. However, we did make use of the skull cookie cutter from the set, whilst also making a zombie and some bunnies (it must be bunnies!) I’ve used this basic biscuit recipe from the BBC Good Food site a number of times. I like to add some freshly ground vanilla, mostly because I always forget to buy vanilla essence at the supermarket and it seems to work equally well.

We’ve collected assorted cookie cutters over the years and so have a zombie, skull and rabbit. I’ve not much success with the zombie cutter in the past and it was the same story today as his arms broke off but the crumbs tasted good.

It’s always fun baking with the toddler and as normal it’s not until it’s time to decorate that the real mess, sorry fun, begins. It being Women in Horror Month, we used a lot of pink icing, which was fun and I think, looked good. The only frustrating thing was that the Dr Oetker icing pouch was tricky to use, hence the hole in one skull. Still, it was our first attempt and we managed to make brains, eyes, teeth and more.

Our finished biscuits! Waht do you think? Have you made anything special for Women in Horror Month?
