Ok, so it’s not Halloween yet, but I don’t normally like posting on Saturdays and with the way my week has been if I don’t schedule this post now it won’t get posted. I made this cake for my work Halloween party–the tombstones are made from Milano cookies, the ghosts from marshmallows speared by pretzels, the trees from bigger pretzels piped with frosting, the bones and skulls are little candies, and of course the beloved pumpkins (although I think Brach’s changed their recipe!). The cake is vanilla because I don’t like chocolate cake and refuse to make it, but the icing is chocolate (which strangely I do like).
It’s a little busy and I don’t know how we’ll cut and eat the cake, but I’m pretty excited to have made my first cake where a teacher wasn’t telling me what to do. Doesn’t it look yummy??
We don’t have any plans for Halloween yet. We’ll have some company this weekend, but other than that I hope for a quiet weekend where I can catch up a bit on life. The house is a wreck, laundry needs to be done, I need to do some serious running, and of course blog stuff. Hopefully aside from all of that I’ll have some time to curl up with Hunger Games!
What plans do you have for the weekend?
