    ReplyDelete
  106. This cake looks sufficiently creepy! The cherries on the side are a nice touch too!

I love, love love to get candy corn in my bag ('cause I'm just too ashamed to buy them myself) and I like to give out Tootsie Rolls (because my Mother loves them) and Eyeball truffles to the children of my neighbors (kinda sad the way you can't give out homemade candies to just anyone these days, eh?).

    ReplyDelete
