A taste of Halloween (A guestpost)

Ola Nikki fans! My name’s Jazzy Elizabeth (from Hivenn) and i’m going to be your guest blogger for today.

I hate anything remotely scary so i’m not a great candidate for halloween but I do like baking. So today we are going to bake a snake infested lemon cake. I’m gluten free but i’ll convert into normal flour.

What you’ll need-
-175g margarine -165g light brown sugar -175g self raising flour -3 large eggs -Grated rind of one lemon -As many jelly snakes as you fancy -Icing sugar -Lemon juice – Green food colouring –

20cm round cake tin
Oven at 180c/350f/gas mark 4

How
-Beat marg, sugar, flour, eggs until smooth (I just use a wooden spoon). If a bit dry add milk
-Add lemon rind & snakes & a swirl of green food colouring
-Spoon in to tin
-Cook in middle of oven for 30-35 minutes
-Allow to cool & decorate if wanted

So yes, happy halloween! Whether you enjoy scaring yourself silly or not, have fun.

    Ooohh…this cake is so fun! Love it! I'm going to be a harloquin. It's like a French clown, but not like red-nosed clown. Hard to explain. Right.

    Very cute – if I wasn't awful at cooking/baking I would try to make it 🙂

    As far as Halloween, unfortunately I don't think I'm doing a costume this year. I have to work early the next morning… 🙁 We might host a small party with candy corn/wine/scary movies

    I don't like being scared myself! I guess we're not alone, because I've been seeing a few bloggers say it 🙂

    The cake is GORGEOUS, so colorful – I love it! I absolutely LOVE baking, so I will hold onto this recipe 🙂

    Hi Jazzy, great post! That cake looks really fun, lemon cakes/bars are definitely a weakness for me.
