Cakes – Power Puff Girls – Meredith’s Birthday – 2001 (I think)

   Okay, it's not a Halloween-themed cake, but it was for my sister's birthday, which is on Halloween, so I'm including it.  Because I can. Not much to say about the cake - it was chocolate, of course, and I cut that white piece out of fondant and then painted the Power Puff Girls on… Continue reading Cakes – Power Puff Girls – Meredith’s Birthday – 2001 (I think)

Tuesdays Thursdays Halloween With Dorie – Chocolate Chocolate Eyeball Cupcakes

  I had the best time making these cupcakes today. This post should have appeared on Tuesday, but I hadn't planned to participate this week.  And then I was reminded that Clara of I*Heart*Food4Thought had suggested decorating the Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes for Halloween.  Well, HECK!  Now I HAVE to participate!  (And by the way, you can… Continue reading Tuesdays Thursdays Halloween With Dorie – Chocolate Chocolate Eyeball Cupcakes

Anyway - this cake - disguised as a huge everything bagal - is kind of part 2 of the previous year's cake theme, which was the giant coffee mug.  As I'd mentioned… Continue reading Cakes – Everything Bagel – Meredith’s Birthday 1997

Sorry – no TWD today. But there ARE some Ghostly Steam pictures to see instead!

Here are a few photos I took one morning last week.  We'd had some frost, and I went outside to start up/warm up the truck.  The sun was rising higher over to the east there, and as the rays and warmth touched places on the truck, the frost would melt and ghostly steam would rise. … Continue reading Sorry – no TWD today.

Cakes – Spider Cake #3 – Calvin’s Birthday – 2001 (I think)

  Love them spiders.  They're so cute. This was a miniature cake for Calvin.  I also made a separate cake for Meredith - the family was celebrating their birthdays on the same day, but I wanted to make them each their own cake. Anyway, I made Calvin's chocolate cake with my 4" springform pans.  I… Continue reading Cakes – Spider Cake #3 – Calvin’s Birthday – 2001 (I think)
