WeHo hotspot serves up more than a party atmosphere, there’s also really scary sweets. Halloween night is your last chance to get into the spirit of the season with really spooky sweets from The Abbey Food & Bar West Hollywood.
Pastry Chef Alan Zumel created a variety of terrifying treats including a Terrormisu with blood streaks throughout and marzipan maggots; a chocolate tart ashtray with cigarette butts made with an Oreo cookie base, milk chocolate pot de crème, cookies and white chocolate; bloody finger brownie bites filled with Butterfinger filling and ground Chuck, made with Rice Crispy treats covered in chocolate syrup, red dye and blackberry juice. Zumel’s pastry assistant Saira also made us some ghoulish red velvet cake cupcakes.
We stopped by The Abbey to sample some of Zumel’s crafty desserts. You won’t find happy pumpkins and ghosts on sale at the bakery, but you will get one of kind unique creative delicious treats.
“I love scary movies and Halloween is my favorite time of year to bake,” said Zumel, who spent all day baking up the creepy sweets for us to try. When asked how long it takes for him to bake the Halloween desserts, he replied “I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so it usually takes a long time to come up with a finished dessert that I feel I can present.”
Regulars who know about the special spooky treats come by often to scoop them up, so if you want to try some of Zumel’s eerie edibles get to The Abbey bakery, which is a small space to the left of the bar, early.
Mark your calendar, and join The Abbey West Hollywood for a Halloween celebration like no other, where the magic of culinary artistry meets the spirit of the season. Alan Zumel’s spooky creations are sure to enchant your taste buds while you dance the night away at The Abbey Halloween night.
The delicious treats are available at The Abbey through Halloween night on October 31. The Abbey is located at 692 N Robertson Boulevard.
