Astoria Gets Ready for Halloween with Delicious Sweet Things
With just two weeks away, Halloween is quickly creeping in, and it's fun to see that places in the neighborhood are getting ready. While on a stroll through 30th Avenue and Ditmars, I noticed a few awesome Halloweeny things that caught my attention. Make sure you check out these creepy, scary and beautiful windows and pop in for a treat.
Leli's Bakery - The best Halloween window I've seen so far is at Leli's with their creepy crawler cakes that you see above. Not only are these creative and colorful, they exemplify amazing pastry and fondant work. Aside from these impressive cakes, they also have Halloween themed cookies, cupcakes and other yums. 35-14 30th Avenue, Astoria. 718.626.8090
La Guli Pastry Shop - On my way to get a haircut yesterday, I noticed the beautiful Halloween desserts in their window, including fondant cakes, gorgeous marzipan pumpkins and ghosts. It looks like they have decorative sugar cookies as well, which are simple but always a big win with the kiddies. 19-15 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria. 718.728.5612
Martha's Bakery - While the Halloween decorations are still in the works, there are plenty of pumpkin flavored treats available such as cookies, cupcakes, a pumpkin apple cheesecake, pie and even sheet cake. Go orange! 36-21 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria. 718.545.9737
