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

-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.

Thank you Jazzy Elisabeth!
And just out of curiousity,
What are you dressing up to be this halloween?

    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.
