I am really getting into the Halloween spirit huh?
This cake was a little different for me, because I knew exactly what I wanted inside, but had NO IDEA what to do with the outside!
And even though the outside of this cake is just supposed to be pretty enough to pass for "please dont let people look at the outside and want to puke" I ended up loving it!
And it was really, really easy to do! Which is great cause when stuff is complicated my brain hurts.
I'm a simple girl I tell you. Simple!
But I like it too.
Can you tell what it is? My hubby did right away! He said, "Some diamonds lined up?"
*banging head against wall repeatedly*
Um, no. Its supposed to be a bat.
Oh well. At least it tasted ok.
It was white sheet cake (adapted from a recipe at allrecipes.com that I cannot seem to find for the life of me) and my favorite chocolate cake ever and chocolate frosting.
The top design is simply my glaze icing and the little tiny bit of chocolate for the bird and branch is left over chocolate frosting.
Even if you dont tackle the bat (heh, heh, tackle a bat, now that would be funny to see) I hope you will try the tree and bird design. It is really forgiving and will make such an impact!
(I just couldn't resist that big ole knife in there. I think thats about as scary as I get!)
