Tricks and Treats

Germany has many delectable treats to offer.  During this very special time of the year (Halloween!) and in being an expat, I appreciate the part of globalization that brought about a very mild interest in Halloween over here.  Here are some goodies I've sampled:

This is an Amerikana frosted as a Jack-O-Lantern.  It looked promising and I thought it would taste a bit like a sugar cookie, but I was very wrong.  It was a sour kind of sweet, the frosting was wicked sweet, and the texture was more like a muffin top.
Definite Trick.

This is some sort of pastry (I don't recall the name) in the form of a Geist.  I had my reserves after the Amerikana, but this was a different pastry and my longing for Halloween goodies got the better of me.  It was quite thick, about an inch and a half, and I expected it to taste like shortcake.  It was soft, not too sweet, and absolutely delicious!
The perfect birthday Treat.
