It's still summer here, folks and forever will be! Though I'm not complaining (cold weather depresses me), it does get a little boring. If we had all the four seasons, Fall would be my favourite, hands down.
I made these pumpkin-shaped bread rolls yesterday as I wanted to make something cute and Fall-ish. You can find the tutorial here. I made the dough using the 65°C Bread  method. I used cloves for the stems as they were the closest edible thing I could find in the kitchen that resembled stems. I was pretty happy with how they turned out. The cloves imparted a subtle cinnamon-ish flavour and smell to the bread.

While I'm on the subject of pumpkins, check out the following adorable painted pumpkin ideas from Better Homes And Gardens.
Use cone-shape pumpkins and spray-paint to create these Halloween treats.
Spray-paint two pumpkins luscious matte black. Craft cardstock features, and pin in place.
"Ice" the pumpkins and squash in pretty pastel paints, embellish with lacy trims and adhesive gems, and stack
Draw bats on white pumpkins with a permanent marker
Use paper doilies as stencils to create intricate, lacelike designs
You  can download the free templates of these cat and mouse silhouettes

You've just created a whole pin board, lol!! Great items here. In fact, all of your blog posts could be pinned. Do you have Pinterest?

Oh my gosh, these are so cute. I really want to make some of the bats on white pumpkins to put in some of the flower beds near the house. I've got to try your bread too. Thanks so much for sharing, now I'm in a Halloween mood :).

Hey Veronica -

Loved your pumpkin rolls! These are adorable. I am very impressed with BHG pumpkin decorating ideas - especially the candy corn and I love that black cat. Have a great week Veronica!

Veronica! what a fun post. I bought my first table size pumpkins this week. The out door ones will come a little later. I really liked the lace designs but the haunted house was my fav. Yes, I'll give these ideas a try.
