Hi bakerella,
thanks for sharing and this great giveaway! And congratulations on your new book!! That is really exiting. Here in Germany we do not really celebrate Halloween, but there are H. parties in the clubs. The last time I went I was dressed as the Grim Reaper with a scythe and long black cloak. I looked great but it was way to hot under that cloak!

Hi Bakerella,
as we don’t celebrate Halloween here, I go for nice sweets in autumn and that is definitely the plum cake my grandmother used to do. Just take a plane yeast dough on a baking sheet and cover it with lots of plums. Bake it, sugar it and savor it!
