Magnolia Down Under Challenge #117 - Halloween

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we are celebrating Halloween. We have our wonderful sponsor Stampyland joining us again this week too.

I decided I didn't need anymore Halloween cards - especially as we don't celebrate it here in Asutralia - so I decided to make a tag - but not any tag - a recipe tag! I loved doing my recipe set a couple of weeks ago so much it inspired me to keep the idea going! I had planned to attach this tag to a jar of pre-mixed dry ingredients - but unfortunately I didn't have a jar large enough!

I found this Betty Crocker recipe HERE. Along with this recipe I learnt that the slight red tint in this cake comes from the reaction between the acid in both the buttermilk and chocolate and the alkaline base of the baking soda - I don't know about you but I found that interesting.

Be sure to check out our BLOG to see what the rest of the MDUC DT have come up with for this spooky challenge.

I'm also entering this in the TOMIC challenge #18

Copics used - R20, R11, E11, E00, E000, 100, E49, E29, E27, E25, E23, C7, C5, R39, R37, R35, R32, YR30, YR20
