Happy (late) Halloween everyone! This year I spent my halloween eating Pizza at a pretty cool restaurant here in Milan with my sister and two of my girlfriends. The place is called PizzaClub and if you are a little bit familiar with the city of Milan, it is located on the yellow subway at the Maciachini stop in via Carlo Imbonati. Basically you pay a fixed price at the end of the meal and you eat as much pizza as you want. One of the coolest things about this place is that waiters walk around tables with a tray full of the craziest combinations of pizza you could imagine. They also make sweet pizza, so you can get pizza with icecream, nutella, ricotta pears and chocolate, pistachio, strawberries and cream. They pretty much make any flavour you could ever imagine. I honestly love it. If you are not afraid of trying different and weird pizza, I highly recommend this place. And of course, since it was halloween we all decided to go with crazy make up on. I went for the mexican skull look and I loved it. Unfortunately this year I had no time to do more halloween blog posts like last years. But if you want to see a few of my makeup tutorials here are the links (The crazy clown, The zebra, The zombie and My Halloween themed party).
I did manage, though, to bake something special. You all know that I couldn’t let you down at least on the baking posts. So last week I went to the super market to choose a few ingredients for a new recipe, when I realised that it was almost Halloween. So, of course, I grabbed a big ol’ pumpking and went streight home. Wanna know what I made? Well of course you already know by the title, but oh well, I’m gonna tell you anyway. I baked some good ol'(sorry I love saying it too much XD) spiced pumpkin pie cupcakes. Why pumpkin spice you ask? Well while sourching for the recipe on youtube ( like I always do) I found cupcake jemma’s recipe and I thought it was absolutely brilliant. She wanted to transform a simple pumpkin pie into cupcake. So she didn’t make some boring, regular pumpkin cupcakes. Oh no, she added a disk of shortcrust pastry at the bottom of each cupcake to resemble exactly a pie. Isn’t it brilliant? And these are sooo good. So thank you jemma for the recipe. Here is the link to her video if you want to check it out. And now let’s get baking!
