Have a Spooktacular Feast with Fair Cape Dairies.
Halloween isn’t a South African holiday but its so much fun to dress up! Em loves to dress up and the thought of getting sweets from people, really excites her! It doesn’t help that she hears about Halloween and all its ghoulish fun from friends living in the States.
Fair Cape Dairies challenged me to create some Halloween inspired treats from their products.
I got my cauldron out and swished my wand to create some Fangtastic treats ( or are they tricks?)
(All these items are easy to make. You just need a little creativity. Em who is 4years old helped me with everything , so nothing is perfect )
