Here at TruffleShuffle, we LOVE Halloween! Remember our amazing Pumpkin Carving Competition on Facebook?!

This year we thought we would try our hand at more than just the traditional Jack-O-Lantern and see what other tricks treats we could come up with.

Starting with the food (of course!) we found some fantastic ideas that we are just dying to try…….!

First the cake, you have to have cake right! These cup cakes look easy and effective, chocolate cakes topped with white icing and decorated with black skeletal detail – spookily edible!

White chocolate dipped strawberry ghosts, decorated with dark chocolate – plus it’s essentially fruit so totally healthy :-)

You will need something to drink so make sure you keep your (blood red!) punch chilled with a frozen ghostly hand. Just fill a latex glove with water and freeze, take off the glove and float the hand in your drinks bowl! Eeeeeasy!

We are especially excited to try these jelly worms. How realistically disgusting to these look – make sure you get the bendy straws for the lifelike wormy texture! Another simple and effective treat for kids and ermm.. big kids like us :)

Of course no Halloween party would be complete without dressing up, if you are going for a traditional spooky theme we have our Ladies Rebel Toons Wicked Witch Fancy Dress Costume or Men’s Skeleton Fancy Dress Costume included in our huge selection of Fancy Dress

Ladies Rebel Toons Wicked Witch Fancy Dress Costume £29.99

Ladies Rebel Toons Wicked Witch Fancy Dress Costume £29.99

Men's Skeleton Fancy Dress Costume £16.99

Alternatively, check out what Pinterest has to offer for Homemade Halloween Costumes, we really like the no-sew ideas!

So, you’ve decorated your food and yourselves – don’t forget to give your house The Addams Family treatment…….

Bats and spiders are Halloween essentials!

Love this simply gory idea

Mrs Voorhees severed head! It must be Halloween Weekend.

As the darkness thickens and your bones start to chill and tiny hairs on your body stand on end. Your eyes refuse to blink as you look around every corner for what you thought you saw, you heard something, a  flicker of a shadowy figure darts from one wall to another as a gentle whisper of air brushes past your ear! Your spine trembles, your body tenses, you’d rather not turn around because you know situations like this never end well! There’s a creek from the wooden floorboards and as your heart thumps louder your curiosity gets the better of you as you make the decision to turn – you take one last gulp of air before you turn your head! Something darts out from the corner of the darkness, you jump literally out of your skin and let out a tiny yelp as your kitty cat playing  tricks on you runs between your legs looking like the smuggest little butter wouldn’t melt [insert swear word] (true story, this actually happened!)

So like a group of happy little kiddies dressed to the nines like ghosts and witches let us be your friendly bandaged head to foot mummy and try to fill your plastic glowing pumpkin heads to the brim as we take you door to door looking for retro tricks and nostalgic treats of pure spooky cinematic greatness.

Have a happy retro spooky weekend mwaaa hahahah haaaaa!

One of life’s small pleasures is when it actually gets cold and you turn on the central heating for first time; there’s a nice cosy feeling that goes along with that and it makes me want to watch horror movies which I love! I do enjoy a good scare although there aren’t many things I’m afraid of, apart from Big Bird from Sesame Street and telephones but that’s a story for another time.

Whatever you get up to this weekend enjoy yourselves and try not to eat too many sweets – it will spoil your tea.

Trick or treat.
