I assume we all have fond memories of ghost cakes from Halloween Past. The only thing to say is that trying to find the pan instructions on the Wilton website is a pain in the ass. Seriously, why do I get Spooky Cinnamon Rolls before I get "here is how to bake things in this pan"? Wilton's instructions also assume I have the fortitude to bake 18-20 ghost cakes, which would require washing the pan multiple times during baking rather than putting it in the sink and waiting for the mythical Brownies to clean it. (IMPORTANT: Do not say any stupid poems and look in a reflective surface or you will learn an important lesson about performing household drudgery.)
The tormented souls doomed to wander the Earth on the right have melted frosting. Those miserable spirits trapped between worlds on the left have room temperature frosting.
I'm not really happy with the purple frosting. It's paler than I'd hoped, and I want you to know that I was most generous with the concentrated "violet" icing color.
Wilton started selling molds for candy picks for those of you who feel that a single serving of frosted cake does not provide enough sugar. And for jerks like me.
And they've got bats. I could bake cupcakes in bat-baking cups and then put bat-candies on top of them! And then after Halloween, I can just make non-holiday themed Bat-cupcakes!
Today's candy-related blonde moment: I have red candy melts and yellow candy melts. Red and yellow make orange. There must be some way to turn this to my advantage...
When you're making orange, you generally want to use more yellow than red. However, it is possible to mix red candy melts with yellow candy melts to make orange candies. The message here is that arts education is important and is useful in the real world.
Although a bigger problem for me seems to be remembering not to fill the entire candy mold when I only need
Next super-important problem to solve: what does one do with spare candypicks? The options are either bring them tonight or chuck them in with the candy-coated cookies I'm definitely not going to forget to bring to karate again.
