Sneak PEEK

It is my dh's birthday on Halloween and we are having a big costume party for him tonight. My gf is hosting the party at her place and I am cooking the meal. I am so looking forward to it. Roasted Pork Tenderloin, Roasted Potatoes, and Roasted Veggies... Oh this is going to be delicious.

I used evite to ask everyone to save the date and then as a reminder with all the details I sent them a little white box, when opened had a severed witch finger cookie that had a little black tie on it. The invite had all the particulars, but also this ....

Don't Forget....

Severed Limbs will be served shortly after 7:00pm, please don't be late, as there is nothing like gnawing on a COLD SHOULDER!!!!

Bring Your Own BLOOD!!!!

So any ways, yesterday I was working on the table center piece, my gf has a beautiful chandelier above her dining table and she has pulled the spider web down from it and managed to suspend some spiders in mid air. The cake will be the table center piece and as I mentioned on my blog, I had no idea what I was going to create for dh. Every idea I found was rather childish, and cutesy, so I kept searching for that perfect cake idea.

I will post photos from the party, as that shot will look fabulous, but until then, here is a sneak peek of the master piece. I have a few pieces yet to add, like a couple of bolts at the bottom (yes this is supposed to be Frankenstein, not just an old man), but I think it turned out alright. I think if I added one more cake on the bottom I might have had the proportions correct, but I didn't think we needed 4 cakes!!!! Any ways, it still looks creepy enough and I am sure will look awesome tomorrow night.

What do you think????

8 days

That is how much time I have to come up with an idea for birthday cake for Scott. It can't be just any old cake, for the husband of the cake maker. This has got to be something fabulous. I spent hours on line trying to find a great cake idea and found a few amazing cakes out there, but I think they are a bit beyond the scope of what I am capable of doing. I don't have any airbrush tools, so that limits a few things I can do.

Any ways, off to check more sites, and more books. Here's hoping inspiration finds it way to me quickly!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This is the newest creation added to my portfolio, it was orginally only to feed 6 people, but when I baked the first cake, it looked so small, and not quite enough, (sure it would totally feed 6 people, but it wasn't grand enough), so I made another layer and decided to do a basket weave on it. I put silk leaves all around the bottom, and mounded the gourds on top.

I hope the family enjoyed it!!!
