    Happy halloween

    robin chisholm from WEST MONROE, LA

    We made this cake for our Halloween party this year. And it was the greatest ever. I used little shortbread cookies for the tombstones and candycorn pumpkins throughout the whole graveyard. It was the easiest cake ever but after I started working with it I found that I couldn't stop adding stuff to it. Great cake lots of fun.
