Treat Petite - October 2015

I cannot believe it’s October already. Where the hecky thump did this year go??

It’s been so fast, I’ve barely had time to catch my breath, until now to announce to you that Treat Petite October is finally here.

Many thanks to those of you who took the time to enter your bakes for September’s Anything Goes festivities.

October brings Halloween at the end of the month of course, but also the full autumn with crisp leaves everywhere, the darker nights coming in and a feeling of cosiness.

The theme this month is ‘Black and Orange’ the colours of Halloween, but I’d like you to think beyond that if you don’t feel you want to embrace the supernatural.

The flavour of orange is an obvious one, or treats the colour of black and orange, or orange or black (we will accept chocolate as 'black'!).

If you want to bake for your favourite football team too – Dundee United – whose colours are black and orange, that would be fine.

Also anything orangey in an autumnal colour sort of way – whatever you can interpret from ‘Black and Orange’ we will gladly accept in Treat Petite form!

Here them rules…

Treat Petite is for all of those delicious bites, which can be individually portioned. Tray bakes are fine, cookies, cupcakes, brownies, macarons and so on. No cakes, puddings, whole loaves – you get the idea…here are those all-important rules:

1. Add your petite treat to the Linky Tool at the bottom of the current month's post by the 31st of the month, midnight at the latest (bit longer for you this month!)

2. Post your bake onto your blog and link back to Cakeyboi and The Baking Explorer, stating who is hosting this month

3. Follow Cakeyboi and The Baking Explorer blogs on Google+ (see sidebar links), if you haven't already.

4. If you tweet use #treatpetite and mention @MrCakeyboi and @BakingExplorer - we will retweet

5. Add the challenge logo to the post and 'Treat Petite' as a label to the post

6. Use any recipe as long as the source is noted

7. If you like, add your photo to the 'Treat Petite' Pinterest board (request access from me, Cakeyboi)

8. Feel free to enter old posts as long as you update the post and meet all the requirements above!

Above all else - have fun!


  1. Can't wait to see how everyone interprets the theme!

  2. I am wondering if my apple and cinnamon madeleines are autumnal enough? Please let me know ;-)
