    Halloween Fun

    So the pumpkins are still being carved, so no pics on those yet. We've got only three this year, Mickey, the Doctor and Tardis, and I'm working like heck to finish up a rendition of the Son of Man (dude in Bowler Cap with the apple). I usually also do a few others, but that's really all I had time for this year I'll post some pics of those tomorrow.

    But I did complete one of two entries in this year's company Halloween potluck. Final assembly will be move to a pewter platter and spoon some nice congealed blood (blackberry sauce) in some strategic places. Turned out okay, but a couple things I'd do different for next time! Sorry for the crappy pics. You'll have to trust me that it looks better in person

    Red velvet cake on the inside, with Marshmallow fondant, and some piping gel on the outside. I'll add the blackberry sauce to the arteries and all around the base come show time!

    Well, the potluck is over and the answer is ... not a lot. A few half-hearted attempts at eyeballs, a jello-ish brain mold thingy... It was weak this year. Last year was better.

    Last year I had made a 2 foot tall Stay-Puft marshmallow man out of home-made marshmallows and marshmallow fondant, and had people slice off bits of him to put into their belgian style hot chocolate... AND LOST! Another person had made ossi dei morti (awesome Italian cookies) that they molded into fingers, complete with nasty chocolate nails, which I think they must have sculpted individually ... AND LOST!

    What won that year? A friggin' pumpkin vomiting vacuum-packed store-bought guacamole.

    Anyhoo. I got the all set up in the break room, went to go get my camera, and in the five minutes it took me, it was already have destroyed by the time I got back. Only pics I've got of this things existence was the one I already posted. Course, it looked better last night too. Adding the piping gel last night turned out to be a BIG mistake. Made the fondant hell to work with the next day! Well, you live and you learn. This is one of the many many reasons I don't usually bake.

    Holy Crap! I forgot about that! Damn it. Why didn't I think of this when I was trying to color the ****ing fondant?!

    Thanks for the offer Ryan, but I swore to myself this is my last year doing anything with Marshmallow fondant, so I think I'm done with cakes! Fondant and I just don't get along. Well, that and I always end up bringing a sweet and a savory because all everybody brings is sweets. This year was Dum Aloo. Next year I think I'll make a spooky savory of some sort...

    Miserable turn out for Halloween, so I didn't bother rushing through the Man in Bowler. I'll finish him up and put him out on display on a night that isn't raining cats and dogs.
