Brrr...There's a Chill In The Air.

My kids have been marveling at the plumes of steam they can create simply by huffing at each other while waiting for the school bus each morning, out the front of our house.

There's definitely a chill in the air and since the trees are all sporting coats of red, gold and bronze, it can only mean one thing...Fall is here!

And that means Halloween is just around the corner, which means there's lots of Halloween parties in the planning stages right now. In this issue you'll find lots of super easy and fun Halloween cake ideas.

And check out the Halloween party ideas too!

Happy Halloween to all my wonderful readers. I hope you have a scary good time on the 31st, whatever your plans are.

Best regards,

Halloween Party Ideas

If ever there's a time to go overboard on your decorations, food and dress-ups, it's Halloween.

Try some of these great ideas for invitations, food and decorations for your upcoming Halloween party:

1. Line the front path of your house with headstones created from Styrofoam. You can always get this for free from your local appliance store. Paint it grey, let dry then sponge on a little black and white to create a Granite effect. Add some spook by naming some of your guests on the headstones.

2. Add a group of these 3' high ghosts to your front yard or porch.

3. Black out your entire party room to add instant spooky atmosphere.

4. Serve up a buffet of scary treats like a skull prop draped in sliced ham or smoked salmon, a body-shaped meatloaf swimming in blood red sauce, witches fingers - finger shaped cookies topped with almond 'fingernails' and drizzled in red-tinted corn syrup 'blood', white chocolate dipped rice krispie 'eyeballs' complete with red veins drawn in food color and served in a bowl spattered with red-tinted corn syrup 'blood'.
