Halloween Cookies

Every year I try to come up with new ideas for all of my holiday cookies.  These cookies were made using my White Chocolate Roll Out Sugar Cookies  

For the skull and witch’s hat cookies I used  cookie cutters that I found in AC Moore.  The cat silhouettes were made using a plastic template that I made from these pictrures. Check out my Birdhouse Cookies to see how I make templates


I used the below picture as a decorating guide for the skulls







Day of the Dead Cake

A few years ago I was lucky enough to be in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico during Day of the Dead.   It was fascinating to see the shrines around the towns, the festive colors and marigolds.  My time there was brief and someday I would love to go back and be part of the celebration.

For this cake I used 1/2 of my Wilton 3D cake pan, black fondant, buttercream, and royal icing to decorate.
