Halloweentime is upon us, and that means people will be doing lots of baking, prepping food and entertaining guests like they do for all the other fall and winter holidays.
Your jolly uncle Jim might not care what he stuffs in his piehole, but everyone else will be wondering what's in it, how long it took you to make it and how it tastes.
However, if your Halloween themed baked dish comes out looking like this people won't be wondering anything but "why did they bother?"
But sometimes a failure is simply not your fault, because the recipe claims to be far easier to complete than it actually is.
When that happens you should just grin and bear the friendly ribbing, because all that really matters is how your baked goods taste!
