GingerDEAD Cookies!

Gingerbread men. Their spice scents the air and lingers on gd cookiesthe tongue. Many reserve gingerbread cookies for Christmas, but why not give them a Gothic twist?
Fred sells cookie stamps called “Ginger Dead Man” which leave an imprint of a skeleton into which white icing can be piped for a skeletal effect. Williams Sonoma sells skull cookie cutters crying for sugar skull status. Foodiggity offers a macabre little cutter called “conjoined.” Two heads for the horror of all.
Andrea from Cupookie in Los Angeles, California posted amazing Dia de los Muertos cookies with beautiful, devious designs. (www.cupookie.blogspot.com) She takes the ordinary form and transforms it into the extraordinary.

Zombies and monsters may lurk within the traditional framework. With swipes of white chocolate, a gingerbread man can become an avenging Mummy. Drip red from broken bits to denote victims. With a little poke and a pin or two, the cookies become weapons in the hands of a voodoo practitioner. Simple circles can become Tim Burton’s Jack Skellington.

To begin, bake traditional gingerbread men and ladies, or buy unadorned cookies to decorate.
A simple gingerbread cookie recipe:
3 cups flour
3 teaspoons ground ginger, 2 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Directions: Mix flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt in large bowl. Set aside. Cream butter and brown sugar in large bowl on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add molasses, egg, and vanilla. Mix well. Gradually add flour mixture on low speed until well mixed.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness on lightly floured work surface. Cut into shapes. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges of cookies are set and just begin to brown. Cool on baking sheets 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.

Then comes the fun. Let your imagination run wild.

Scents of the Season

pumpkinPumpkin mania grips the nation. Baristas prepare pumpkin spice lattes and teashops pour out clever pumpkin combinations. Pies, cakes, muffins, cheesecake and mousse – just about every baked good sports a pumpkin flare as the weather turns cooler and the trees don astounding, colorful arrays.

Candles and sprays come in autumnal offerings, often linking perky pumpkin combinations. Not to be outdone, Halloween Forevermore’s Graveyard Gang scented wax melt shapes include “Rising Spirits”, with its light pumpkin-cinnamon scent, in its assortment. (The other scents in the package are “Boneyard Blend” black bats and “Bloody Shot of Berry” scented red cats.)

While some in America dread the shortened days scented with all things pumpkin spice, many others embrace the madness.

But why pumpkin and its accompanying spices? Native to North America, pumpkins are a part of the squash family. With their vibrant colors, refreshing smells, and distinctive flavor, they represent the autumn. Pumpkins are carved into Jack-O-Lanterns and its seeds roasted into delicious snacks. Pumpkins are celebrated in festivals all across the United States. Circleville, OH boasts the largest pumpkin festival to date. The aromatic blend featured in pumpkin pie spice compliments the clean, earthy flavors of the loved gourd. With its versatility, pumpkin remains the uncontested King of Gourds.

Looking for a way to bring the scents of the season into your personal spa? Try this:

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrubpumpkin mix

1 cup of granulated sugar

1/4 cup of almond oil (Can use olive or flax seed oil instead)

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

1 and 1/4 teaspoon of ground pumpkin pie spice (If you don’t have premixed, make your own by combining 1/4 teaspoon each: nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and ground ginger)

*Combine the above ingredients in a small bowl, mixing well until forming a thickened paste.

To Use a Body Scrub: Moisten the area you wish to scrub. Rub into skin in a circular direction for about 1 minute. Sugar scrub should be stored in an air-tight container and can be refrigerated for up to a week.

Haunted Attraction: Spook It Up

spookitup flyerI am happy to announce our featured Halloween Haunt of 2014! Spook it Up Entertainment and The Mix 101.3fm present The Mix Monster Bash! It will be held at the Lake Diamond Stadium in Lake Elsinore, CA. There will be Spookitup scare zones, bars, a VIP section and live music. Among the local bands featured will be Oingo Dance Party, a band that consists of many former members of Oingo Boingo. Here is the press release from Spookitup:

Flynn Messenger, aka the Halloweenkeeper, creator of Spookitup Entertainment has been “spooking up” events since 2007 but creating monsters for over 27 years. Flynn enjoys building terrifying tombstones in the hundreds, dozens of creepy coffins to fill his zombie graveyards and placing over one hundred hand built monsters in every scene imaginable.

The Halloweenkeeper has had the pleasure of sponsoring a few horrific haunted hayrides with his “Spook Crew,” actors that rise from the dead to eat hayride passengers, the Spook Crew also entertains by twirling swords, playing music, singing like angles of the dark and more. In the past, Flynn has spooked up Ontario City’s Deanza Commu-nity Center with fifteen spooky Halloween scenes, many private parties and has performed as the Halloween-keeper, MCing contests and games while singing and dancing to the delight of many creatures of the night.

The new spookitup.com will be geared towards the DIY Halloween enthusiast from little trick or treaters to mad monster maniacs, a site where spooky fans can learn where to find materials, how to create their own “monsterabilia” and hosting killer Halloween events “for pennies on the dollar!,” Don’t forget, “Spookitup will show you how!”

This year the Halloweenkeeper has been summoned from beyond to set up “Spookitup Scarezones” at the Diamond Stadium home of the Lake Elsinore Storm, a Class A– Advanced Minor League affiliate of Major League Baseball’s San Diego Padres and the legendary FIELD OF SCREAMS, an event held eight years consecutively with great success hosting five scary mazes. This year, 101.3 The Mix FM from Temecula, CA has hit a home run with live music from the Boingo Dance party (members from the original Oingo Boingo), Indie band Oliver Trol-ley and The Forty Nineteens.

Spookitup and the Halloweenkeeper are committed to bringing the spooky fans of Southern California live Hal-loween entertainment for years to come while spookitup.com can help spread the tradition of Halloween world-wide, so check us out and remember what the Halloweenkeeper always says, “We’re dying to see you!”

I will be at this event Saturday November 1st. If you live near Lake Elsinore and you aren’t quite ready to give up the Halloween ghost, maybe I will see you there!
