Happy Halloween Cake!


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the theatre and creativity it inspires in people. Once I had kids it took on a whole new level of special. The boys love to get in costume, and it is a great excuse for me to dress up too. They’ve gone from being little toddler dinosaurs, to anything scary and repulsive as pre-teens. I hate to miss any of it, because pretty soon they will be “too old” to dress up. So it is bittersweet this year that I will be on the road for Halloween. Off I go to Portland tonight to bake pizzas for our Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day Book Tour. I hope I will see you as I travel from Portland, to Seattle and on to San Francisco to attend Foodbuzz 2011. To find out where we will be this coming week, please visit the events page.

This is a revisit of a spider cake I did a couple of years ago. I recreated it for a post on Cooking Channel and thought I would share it again with you. Here is a link to the original post, have a very happy Halloween.

  1. Have a safe trip, Zoe. Sure wish you were coming down to Southern California. Sorry you miss out on the boys’ Hallowe’en….mine never wanted to be cute toddler dinosaurs. they have always been about the scary – both are Zombies this year….daughter (12) is Dr. Z. Ombie, Neurosurgeon.

  3. MMM! that looks delicious and I love the spiders and the design!
    btw, I bought your first bread book on my kindle a while ago but since then have become gluten intolerant. I am lusting after your new book with the GF bread recipes!

  4. Hello Zoe, I’m wondering if you can help me with the conversion of large eggs to medium. When using medium eggs but the recipe calls for large (5) how many medium can I/ should I use?
