A set of food for celebrating Halloween!

I continue the theme of Halloween and made a festive menu for your Sims. Several types of food for the whole day and two desserts.

Update! Fixed a bug with pancakes (Fritters "Spider") - now they do NOT replace those that are in the game.
If you downloaded before 07/30/2018 you can re-download the AdeLana_Halloween Food.rar for the fix and allow it to overwrite the files. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Common notes.
- All meals are created in Base Game and are compatible with any addons.
- Meal menus are currently available in English, Polish and Russian.
(I thank Misaki Chan for translating the text of the menu into Polish!)
If someone wants proper menus for other languages - please help me to translate meal names to your language.

Now, let's review each meal.

Sandwiches "Jack's Smile"
- This is cloned from the Maxis' food Sandwiches
- Sandwiches - is a Lunch.
- skill 0 is required.

Stuffed eggs "Eyes"
- This is cloned from the Maxis' food Chef Salad
- Stuffed eggs - is a Lunch.
- skill 0 is required.

Spaghetti "Dracula"
- This is cloned from the Maxis' food Spaghetti
- Spaghetti - is a Dinner.
- skill 1 is required.

Fritters "Spider"
- This is cloned from the Maxis' food Pancakes
- Pancakes - is a Breakfast.
- skill 3 is required.
(In the English version, fritters are written in the menu as pancakes)

Cupcakes "NightFear"
- This is cloned from the Maxis' food Layer Cake
- Cupcakes - is a Dessert.
- skill 3 is required.

Cookies "Halloween"
- This is cloned from the Maxis' food Layer Cake
- Cookies - is a Dessert.
- skill 3 is required.

Wow, AdeLana, what a creative and festive set of food! I love everything about it, but especially the stuffed eggs as they are perfect for my zombie family. Thank you so much!

I really like this food set ... it's whimsical and I love that it's edible, not just decorative clutter; and the textures are wonderful. I can't decide which I like more, but I think "Jack's Smile" is my fav (I'm just partial to cheese, lol!) Then again, the "Night Fear" cupcakes look so delicious, then there are the cookies ... see I told you I couldn't decide.

I absolutely love this food set! It's so festive and just screams Halloween. Even if I no longer observe the holiday, this food set is perfect for my Sims to celebrate Halloween in their own way. :)

These look amazing, espeically the cupcakes!

Just letting you know, though, that the cookies will show up in fridge menus as 'Cakes "Halloween"' (I edited mine while adding them to my "cookies" sub-menu, but that's something I only recently learned how to do.)

I really love this set. Very creative and very well done. It's a nice addon to my own set of Halloween food. Now my sims don't have 6 but 12 dishes to enjoy.

Forgive me, I did not understand what to add to the description of cupcakes (I understand English very poorly). I wrote that the muffins will appear in the menu - dessert. Or did you mean something different?

As they are a desert, they should appear in the desert menu, and this is where they appear, so that's not a problem! I meant that in that fridge menu, when you click on the fridge and choose "serve desert," the name of the food does not show up as "cupcakes" but as "cakes" (specifically, 'Cakes "Halloween"'). I assumed this was unintentional, as the catalog description as well as the descriptions here on MTS calls them "Cupcakes" (specifically, 'Cupcakes "NightFear"').

I'm attaching a screen cap from SimPE which shows how I have personally edited the fridge menus for your cupcakes myself (inside the red box on that image). Your SimPE might look different, and obviously you wouldn't have the sub-menu I'm using, but hopefully that gives you some idea of what I'm talking about.

Now I understand! Thank you.
In my version of the game there was no such description, I just edited the name of the meal. For this reason, I do not have such a section.

Hi Adelana, thanks for making these, they do look great in game. I thought that because the Halloween meals were cloned that they would then show up in addition to the normal food menu that is skill based, however in my game they are showing up as defaults. Are they meant to be defaults that replace their original cloned dish? I hardly ever download custom food/meals, so I am not sure whether food custom content usually replaces a default or is in addition to the originals.

No, these food menus are not defaults. They should appear as a separate dish.
I made these food menus with a low skill level, perhaps the menu from the game will appear when your sim has more skill.
