I had a dinner party a couple of weeks ago and my friend Michelle brought over the best red velvet cake. She decorated it perfectly for Halloween. She used these gummy candies shaped like a scary goul-like mouth with teeth. It is really odd to eat one as you look down and are actually eating teeth!
My favorite candy for Halloween is candy corn. A friend of mine at work has helped me to rekindle my love for this candy. She buys bags of it and shares it with the office. What is it about this candy? To put it simply, it is just so pretty and it reminds me of being a kid (not to mention it is pure sugar). My favorite chocolate shop Boule makes the most beautiful candy corn. It looks more ridged and hand cut. I was curious about the history of candy corn and read this article.
A new world record was made, check out bigpumpkin.com for a picture of the world’s largest pumpkin. It weighed 1502 lbs!
Happy Halloween Everybody!
