Rockin' Pumpkins

Okay, if you're anything like me (and I'm sorry if you you probably carve 2 triangles that look like eyes and a smile with a snaggletooth in the middle ... that's about the extent of my creativity when it comes to carving pumpkins. This morning we were at Mosby Farm's Pumpkin Patch getting some awesome tips on how to create a Jack-o-Lantern that will make you the talk of your block!

Scary ....

Really concentrating

It was seriously freezing!

Rosella Mosby, owner of the patch, gave us some great tips on carving and some amazingly fab recipes.
1. Download a stencil and make your carving simple (and super cool)
2. Cut the flesh away to make your pumpkin translucent and that way the candle light will shine through and look spooky
3. Use white glue and a sponge brush to adhere glue to the pumpkin. Sprinkle sparkles on the glue, shake off, and you have a gorgeous glittered squash!
CLICK HERE for some fabulous pumpkin recipes (the ones we featured on this morning's show).
Try them and then write a comment on the blog and let me know how they worked out!
