Hello! Merry almost Valentine’s Day. I’m not one for hearts and cuddly toys so I was happily surprised with an Alice In Wonderland tea set and home made cakes – including a rainbow cake – from
Bill Purnell. Coincidentally he also does a lot of my book covers, have a look at his site.
As a weird fiction and bizarro author I’ve always loved Alice In Wonderland, it was the first time I realised things could be surreal. So feast your eyes upon today’s amazingness, and happy Valentine to you all.
I’m obsessed with tea parties, probably because I don’t really drink anymore. But,
of course, no boring parties for me. Here’s a few unusual things you could bring to proceedings:
First off I love psychedelia, not sure why I just always have. Why not get some
mugs to match, or for an extra boost of weirdness how about one of these Day of the Dead sugar skull mugs? I’ve got mine!
Or if you prefer drinking vessels that are even spookier, how about these
surprisingly sinister mugs?
And let’s not forget there will be those that don’t like tea (weirdos). Here’s a quick how to on
serving blacklight lemonade.
Of course no mad hatter’s psychedelic party would be complete without rainbow cupcakes,
get the recipe here.
If something a little more disturbing is your thing, and let’s face it why wouldn’t it be, try these. First up is a savoury centre piece treat,
Zombie Head Cheese.
Next is a recipe for
melting witch cookies. Rather timely with the release of this new Wizard of Oz movie.
And lastly my favourite recipes from Halloween Culture. First is the
oreo spider web cookies, and to decorate all those cakes here’s a how to for edible glass sculptures.
Super happy fun times!
Me, a sugar skull mug and a skull onesie. You wish you were me
I thought I’d share
these exciting cakes by artist Scott Hove. He does other varieties of art too, have a quick look at his website.
For anyone wanting to make their own spookily brilliant food stuffs the obvious choice is the
Food and Drink section in blog Halloween Culture.
