Evil Genius Parent Award #7 – Hallowe’en

Hallowe’en. Sure, most of us think that it is just an opportunity for Cadbury’s and Allens to make a mint *grin*. It is supposed to be a festival. Lots of ghouls, science experiments gone wrong, that sort of thing.

Gotta love the pirate skeleton in the web

With Halloween, there’s not much opportunity to really practice your evil genius. Most of the best stories have been taken, and most of the really cool stuff is expected.

So let’s ease back for a week, and instead appreciate the creative genius of those parents (and honorary parents) out there, who have made the extra effort to really work Hallowe’en up.

For me, I think it takes a special level of creative genius to design and make food that truly has the potential to turn off the people you are feeding. And you know what? If you can turn the kids off eating it despite it being junk food then wow! Kudos to you.

Which brings me to this week’s recipient: 3AM Dad. And yes – you may be familiar with 3AM Dad – he has been a previous recipient, and is definitely moving up the minion ranks.

This week, 3AM Dad has been busy making Halloween treats:

Witches broomsticks, ghostly strawberries, severed fingers, and other treats.

Particularly check out the severed fingers. They are officially enough to  some 6yo boys from the table. The choc-covered strawberries will entice them back but watch the fingers – they look divine.

So, 3AM Dad – well done on your second award! Let this be a lesson to you lesser minions!!
