Halloween is here and we decided to make these uber yummy and moorish pumpkin Halloween cake balls that look like mummys. They are fun and so easy to make, and using a base pumpkin cake gives that great autumn feeling.
My kitchen was rather warm when I was making these little beauties and so I did quickly put them in the fridge to help set the white chocolate cover. You can make these for any occasion as they are great bite size treats.
My son initially said we should make ghosts but as I was making ghost cupcakes I thought I would give these little balls red eyes instead of black eyes. Halloween is a great event as you can make as much or as little inspired treats. All the little trick or treaters and their parents were loving these hand-made goodie bags full of Halloween home-baked treats.
