Picture of Presentation

The Deathberry scones although delicious, look best presented with other death themed items.
Old chicken bones, Moldy cheese, and the piece de resistance...rice "maggots" crawling around them.
Mix with dead flowers for that Victorian splendour.

Serve on equally deadly broken plates, or even better, aged tin plates with flour preferably slightly toasted sprinkled around the corners.

Happy Halloween!
