Halloween - Black Cupcakes!

Lovely week off ending with Halloween. Gracie carved a pumpkin and we decided to make some cupcakes and see how they would turn out by using black paste food colouring. They looked great and reall fooled the tastebuds when bitten into - you don't expect vanilla sponge from something so black.Gracie didn't just dress up for trick or treat , she had a dance show in St.Albans. She looked fab but did get loads of sweets while trick or treating too !
We went to our friends, Sam and Rob's for dinner on Saturday  night and had a really lovely time - haven't been able to catch up with friends for ages being on tour. There were a group of ten of us and the food was great including this white chocolate cheesecake, a Mary Berry recipe. That's Sam holding her creation.
Huddersfield this week and I'm about to start making a courgette and lime cake. Never tackled one before and am adding some twists too.
