Happy Halloween from My Pumpkins to Yours


This was my 1st time decorating a cake & now I know why. Me & frosting just have a heckuva time. But it was all worth it because this is what Tristan wanted for his school party today. I took the best from 2 recipes here & here & then improvised a bit in order to make the face.

Happy Halloween to all!!!!!!!

Great cake! You would never know that it was your first time, but you what this means? Your little guy will think you can do anything with a cake and frosting. Watch out!

Great cake!!!!! I want to make one now, but Baby Blue's daycare party was yesterday :( There's always next year... hope I can remember!!

I'm getting further in The Shack... funny you mentioned it, I was going to ask you today. I kind of got over the hump, so I'm more interested again now, LOL. Now, it's just finding the time to finish it. I was sick yesterday and couldn't move since I got home from work. Better today though :)

Lump said...

Pumpkin Delight said...

That is incredible. I bet he was so proud to bring that in to school.

TMI said...

Impressive indeed!

Braja said...

Loved your profile, especially the eating and getting closer to God :) And where I live, those two practices are intertwined...it's a beautiful thing...if you're into it i can share more...

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

that cake is awesome!! frosting can be tricky! Don't ever use the tub frosting - it is too slick and wet - if you are in a pinch - add powdered sugar to it - or Meringue powder to stiffen it up.

Jamey said...

Love the cake and what a great picture! Frame it!

Lo said...

Adorable cake! Thanks for coming to visit my blog! I LOVE good food, so I promise I'll be back! :)

Shannon said...

Hey, SITSta! Kudos, for trying the cake. I'mnot so hung upon frosting as I am getting the ^$%*! cake out of the pan, so I stick to cupcakes!

Jennifer said...

awesome job on teh cake!!!

Tabitha Blue said...

Yeah, I think that scary house was a frat house or something... there were about 8 guys there all dressed up and having a part in the show. A couple of them running around in the cemetary they made, one in a casket, the guy at the door and a few more. It was pretty cool... just maybe not for the little ones.

So... how's the book coming now? I'm still NOT done, LOL.

Little O' Me said...

you did a great job!!! I love it!!!

Tara @ Feels like home said...

That is a great pumpkin! I'm going to feature it in my Things to Write Home About today. :)

Melissa Lester said...

Your cake turned out cute! I made a pumpkin cake for Carson's class when he was in kindergarten, but our preschool and elementary school don't allow parents to send sweets anymore. Boo! I understand that it can be overdone, but I think it's OK in moderation for a holiday party. Guess I'll peddle my baked goods somewhere else!

Nicki & Mathis said...

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

That looks scrumptious!!! I've never made icing from scratch before.....

Mary said...

Looks great! I did one of these last year and it was a huge success. I used the store bought frosting by had to add a ton of yellow to it b/c it was practically pink. Great job.

angie said...
