halloween meringue bones pavlova with raspberry blood

these meringue bones are so easy to make and i think used on a pavlova they look so cool, im sure that it would go down well at a halloween party. i decided to make a hand too,
i made a raspberry sauce but decided to keep the lumps of fruit in for extra gore.
Halloween is one of the holidays that i don't really celebrate, as a child my brothers and i would dress up for trick or treat but i don't think Halloween is as popular here in England then it is in the states.

i love coffee and walnut cake, but i really hate drinking coffee, i know alot of you will think that is odd as you cant function with out your morning coffee (mum I'm talking about you) but for some reason i just don't like it, i much prefer a cup of tea, i guess i am a proper English girl who enjoys her tea and cake at any hour.

apple pie for one

sometimes its nice to just have a pie to your self, i hate to make a big pie when its just the two of us,
i baked this pie in a large tea cup it could be shared with two spoons if you don't want to eat it all to your self. there is enough dough to make one large mug pie or two smaller ones.
