There are many versions of this frozen orange treat around. My version entails mixing the orange pulp with the ice cream but you can just use the ice cream straight. They are perfect for Halloween because of their shape but also good for any time of year. Our kids prefer chocolate chip mint ice cream but you can use any flavour. Try and find oranges with thick skins and keep the carving small to minimise the "ooze"!

Soul cakes come from the Celtic festival of Samhain, more commonly known today as All Hallows eve. Soul cakes were baked and left on the porch with a glass of milk or wine, for the dearly departed. On All Hallows day Nov 1, traditionally children and the poor, would perform, sing, or pray for the dead to earn the treat of the Soul cake. Which evolved into the modern day version of trick or treating.
