Pumpkin pie...with a difference :D

A Blessed Samhain to you all :D

I love the colours of Autumn, and the magic in the air as the earth prepares for it's long winter rest. 
It has become the time when we think more openly about death, and what may or may not come after.
With this in mind, I spend today cooking treats...yes all that any visitor may find something to their taste.
And of course Pumpkin pie.
I found this fabulous cake mould in a supermarket for £1.99!!
blind baked my pastry base....
then added a thin layer of raspberry curd,
before pouring in my pumpkin mix.
 When set, the pie tipped out easily(some areas were a little undercooked so I put it back in the oven to dry out)
 And I couldn't resist adding a little colour :D
 Quite a fun and fitting addition to the table don't you think?

Though Samhain is a time for deep though and contemplation, it is also a celebration, so don't forget to have fun :D
Blessed Be, and Enjoy :D XXX

  3. Gina, I hope you had a very blessed Samhain! I had a very special day! I love your skull pie! That is so cool and I bet it was so yummy ;o)
    Guess what? I got a beautiful package in the mail today! I cried happy tears when I opened it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the two paintings and the feathers! I have everything on my altar right now! I will take pictures soon, to share on my blog, when I get the earrings.
    Big Hugs and thank you for being you!
