Martha Stewart inspired jack-o'-lanterns.

Meringue bones (Martha again). I didn't have the called for pastry tip to pipe these out with, but had a smaller one, so I made a bunch of mini bones and used them to decorate this cake (which, incidentally, is a perfect chocolate cake. I can't imagine ever bothering with another chocolate cake recipe again. It's that good!)

Cheshire Cat (who later grew some whiskers during a nap, the only possible time I could get away with drawing on her face).

Plus Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts.

I love my tiny crown. I don't love the fly swatter back there in the background. Gross.

Okay, back to hiatus mode!


  1. you guys look great! also, thanks for the chocolate cake recipe--I've been looking for a good one. tried one from 101 cookbooks on two occasions, but decided i don't really like it.

  2. Thanks, I saw the Halloween pictures of you and Jesse on FB and they were so hilarious! I hope you like the cake recipe, let me know what you think if you make it. I am completely over the 101 black bean brownies...they're impressive at first because you really can't detect the beans, but as far as brownies go, they're just really not my favorite.
