Hall-OH-ween 2013

More halloween.  Bake, decorate, and repeat.  Better get to the gym.  Or yard work.  Or shoveling snow (too early for Buffalo?).

A Cat, a Hat, and a little black Bat

Favors for the ladies at cards.  It’s how I imagined Dr. Suess would celebrate Halloween.  🙂


DSC_0321Made the cat, hat, and bat using royal icing on waxed or parchment paper; I just free-hand drew them for “character.”  Wait at least 4 hours before trying to take them off the paper.

DSC_0327In process… outlined in black royal icing and filled in with colored glaze.  Next, the dots in white royal icing were added, followed by the halloween shapes; this was done while the icing was still wet.  When dry (overnight), I placed them in a pretzel bag and Voila.
