'13 Days of Halloween' at Village Bakery
"The 13 Days of Halloween" start on Wednesday at Village Bakery & Cafe in Atwater Village. On each of the 13 days leading up to Halloween, the neighborhood bakery offers a different scary treat. By Halloween Day, all 13 will be available.
It's sort of like an Advent calendar for Halloween rendered in baked goods -- starting with witches' fingers shortbread (pictured above). Other treats include: monster eyeballs, ghost meringues, jack o' lantern pumpkin tarts, skeleton gingerbread men, chocolate mice, skull cookies, mummy rice krispy treats, mini pumpkin cakes, black cat cookies, bat brownies, serial killer cookies and skeleton cupcakes. Other Halloween treats, not part of the 13 Days of Halloween, also will be available.
3119 Los Feliz Blvd., Atwater Village, (323) 662-8600, www.villagebakeryandcafe.com.
