It seems I can't ever pull out my fondant without my kids asking to play with some too. Not that I blame them, it's just like playdough, except better and you can eat it too.
The last several times that they've asked, I've said no. So, when I finished the baptism cake I was working on, I decided to let the kids. They were happy.
So, while they were making stuff, I decided I'd make some more stuff too. After all, I had a Halloween Party to go to in the evening and I had nothing to take. Plus, I had a small cake in my freezer than I put in there just a few days ago.
It seems that I rarely make cakes for myself and my family, so I decided I'd make a cake that I've thought about before. A Halloween cake. And I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
A long time ago, I bought a book by Debbie Brown called "Enchanted Cakes for Children". I love the book. And in it, there's a cake with a witch. Debbie's cake was a witch flying around a big cake moon. I didn't have time to do a moon like that, so I decided to put my own little spin on it and do a "simpler" cake that doesn't require carving. The idea of my cake is to portray the witch flying in the night sky. I could have put more details on it, but I'm happy with how it turned out. It was fun to make.
