|Chocolate Ghost Train|
I am not very good a baking cakes but I wanted to create a chocolate ghost train for Halloween so this is my practice run.
I have used two chocolate swiss rolls (2 for £2 ) some small mini rolls for wheels and sweets for decorations. The ghost at the front is from a pack of glow in the dark stickers that I have from last year. It looks a little busy so I will add another chocolate swiss roll for Halloween and spread the sweets out more. I also think I will use white chocolate buttons for the wheels as these mini rolls don`t look right.
If you have young children you could make a ghost train by covering cheap swiss rolls in chocolate. The small spoons from ice cream tubs covered in white chocolate would make great ghosts.
I have added fairy lights to my broomstick behind the table. There is also a little witch who lives in the broomstick this is a permanent fixture in my home. I hung a witches hat up to cover a picture on the wall and hey presto I will be ready to decorate the table.

|Flesh Eating Pumpkin|
Carving the pumpkin was the hardest part of this so I did get a little help. The skeleton came from £1 shop and you get two skeletons in the pack. Spiders and white hair also in packet from £1 shop. The skeletons insides are those sweet laces you can buy for about 50p. The pumpkin was £1.50 and has a tea light inside. Black material is from a witches cloak costume I already have and the pumpkin is resting on a vase for the photo.
I wanted this one to look like he had just knocked everything off the table as he swung his cape around. I should have painted his face to make him look like the Phantom of the Opera that would have looked much better.
One that won`t scare the kids to much but again I should have used some face paint to liven the face up a bit.
I got lots of ideas from pinterest including a similar idea for a very happy flasher. He is made from a butternut squash, a pomegranate, some well placed cherry tomatoes and a little sage. All very organic ha ha. This one will scare the kids but may give the grown ups a laugh.

This photo is my entry into a twitter competition for scary pumpkins it might give them a ` crackle`.
Now if only I had worn a witches outfit but then with my hair and gob I probably don`t need it. `crackle` `crackle`
