Halloween is the day of horror. In this day, you can create creepy things such as ghost costumes, horror games and strange shaped cakes, etc, to trick your friends.

Therefore, today, I am going to continue to introduce a kind of cake that has a unique shape to you for the Halloween. With it, you can trick your friends or whoever to bring fun in this day. Let's start!


- 100g wheat flour

- 30g ground sugar

- 60g unsalted butter

- 1 egg

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1/3 teaspoon banking powder (check expiration date first)

- Strawberry jam

- Some peanuts


Step 1:

- Put a pan on the stove to roast the peanuts (*Note: add 1/2 teaspoon salt when start to roast them).

Step 2:

- Put 60g unsalted butter into a bowl then add 30g ground sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the bowl, then mix them together, continue to crack an egg into the mixture and mix well again.

- Next, add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to the mixture, then use a sifter to sieve 100g wheat flour and 1/3 teaspoon banking powder in the bowl of mixture and mix well.Then knead it for about 20-30 minutes until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3:

- Divide the mixture into small parts and shape them into the fingers as the image below. 

- Next use a toothpick and press slightly on surface of the "fingers" to create phalanges and wrinkles for the fingers. Next use the peanuts to make the nails and wait for 1 hour so that they are completely dried. Finally, put them into a oven.

Step 4:

- Put the “fingers” into an oven and bake them within 15 minutes with temperature of 150°C (320°F). After baking, you can use strawberry jam to fake the blood. The decoration might depend on you so that they look more horrible.
