Halloween Witch Cake

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.
