I was pleased with the Halloween cakes I made at home last week
The children learned how to make the swirl on top of a cupcake and Mari decorated them with the bones.
Earlier in the day we'd visited Beaumaris to indulge Osian's interest in Norman castles and playing football, Mari's interest in jumping in puddles, and my and Angharad's interest in eating ice cream at the Red Boat Cafe. They make fantastic ice cream in all kinds of flavours and we enjoyed rhubarb crumble, Irish cream, marshmallow and jelly baby ice cream. No one was brave enough to try cheese and onion flavour though.
Here's a photo of us atop Beaumaris castle with the Menai Strait in the background.
I also took a picture of Mari playing in the castle's chapel. Quite how a snap of an angelic little girl turned out this eery I don't know - look at the shadow on the table, it's like Satan's pitchfork.
Thanks for having me to stay. Happy Hallowe'en, Calan Gaeaf Hapus!
