#witchesofinstagram – here is the perfect book for your haunted kitchen!
Give your baking a wicked twist with eerily clever ideas for all manner of cakes, cookies, pastries, breads, desserts and even drinks to spook up your cooking repertoire and make Halloween an occasion to remember. Whether you're a curious witch, a Halloween fiend or you just want to add a creepy touch to your baking, Helena Garcia will give you all the inspiration you need.
Try her mummified eclairs, some cinnamon buns that look shockingly like brains, a batch of cookie bats, or a scarily impressive haunted tree cake and before you know it, every day will seem like Halloween. Helena wowed the Great British Bake Off judges and audience with her surprisingly ghoulish interpretations of the baking challenges and now, with her amazingly inventive recipes, you too can become the ghostess with the mostest.
About the Author
Helena was born in Spain and schooled there until she decided to do her last year of High School in Las Vegas. During her second year of university back in Spain, she joined the Erasmus programme and went to the UK to finish her studies at Leeds University. Later, she was given the chance to take over a beautiful Victorian apothecary in which she developed her own brand of fashion accessories and oddities. Helena competed in the Great British Bake Off 2019 and her eccentric style, spooky approach and fun-loving personality made her an exceptionally popular contestant. Obsessed with anything witchy, Helena's mission is to inspire everyone to live like every day is Halloween.
