My little lady is all grown up now and started demanding new things every now and then! Her demands are funny at times and innovative at times and even spooky at times. The day before yesterday she demanded Halloween makeup and I was shocked. I was not expecting her to know about Halloween! I was not aware of Halloween when I was five (and even twenty-five). Then I thought I was not aware of many things she knows or understands when I was five. She got her makeup and she also got a few Halloween Cake Pops!
Truly speaking I couldn’t say her no! I had hardly 4 hours to make her treat; to do her makeup, to click and edit the pictures and finally to come up with the blog post. At this moment; it is 03.10 a.m. in the morning and I will be leaving for a field trip by 9 a.m.
Before going further with the Halloween cake pops recipe or Pasta’s Halloween look let me share a little bit about Halloween for people like me. Halloween is also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve. This is celebrated in several western countries to remember the dead, martyrs, saints and all who departed. The activities during Halloween are inclusive of costume parties, pumpkin carvings, watching horror movies, playing pranks, visiting haunted places, having Halloween special food etc. Attending the Church to pray and lighting the candles are also part of the event.
On the Hallow’s eve, people generally opt for vegetarian food. There is some specific food associated with different countries and respective Halloween celebration. The popular food items are Candy apple. caramel corn, Bonfire Toffee, pumpkin seed, caramel apple and also horror themed food!
Pasta’s first Halloween look for 2018!
Here I must mention Pasta ended on having two Halloween looks and she was so very enthusiastic about it! I in fact goofed up! While doing the makeup for her first look I forgot that the Camera battery was down. She with patience waited for getting it charged with the makeup on! It was funny watching my active kid waiting patiently!
Knowing my limited capability with makeup I decided to give her a spooky kitten look! I have used loads of eyeliner and a good chunk of my lipstick! I have used little poster color as I had not anything Yellow available. However, Pasta was not satisfied with her first look. According to her, it was not spooky enough!
Halloween Cake Pops prepared by Pasta and Momma with the support of Rosie didi and Papa!
Seeing the enthusiasm I decided to make the Halloween a bit more special for Pasta. I had very little time and moreover almost no preparation. However, with the limited resources available I and the little lady ended on making some Halloween Cake Pops on the night of 29th. Basically, we have used some leftover Vanilla Cake, some cream cheese, Chocolate, and food coloring to make the Halloween Cake Pops. I, however, involved Pasta in the making of the spooky yet cute Cake Pops. She was super excited and helped me a lot. In fact, that is when I decided to opt for another Halloween look for her!
I have made four types of Halloween Cake Pops which are as follows:
- Pumpkin Cake Pops
- Monster Eye Cake Pops
- Monster Cake Pops
- Jack Skelingtons Cake Pops!
Pasta’s 2nd Halloween Look!
While her first Halloween look was cute; I wanted the real spooky look for the second one. Pasta actually was not satisfied with her first look! According to her, it was not spooky enough! For that, I requested Mehebub to help me out as he is very good with the paint brushes. Again some eyeliner, CC cream, Red Lipstick we ended on getting Pasta’s second look; spookier this time. Pasta again didn’t disappoint us. She was thoroughly enjoying the makeup.
Pasta carried it amazingly. In fact, she was ready to give pose with the fresh Halloween Cake Pops! From the entire lot, her favorite was the pumpkin one and also the monster eye cake pop!
