I have an October tradition. Each year I try to cram as many Halloween related festivities into the month as I can. This year, I just have not had the time to spread it out, so they are all taking place this weekend. Party time! Excellent!
I was supposed to find time to get some last minute shopping after work yesterday.My plan was to meet up with my sister for dinner, attend a virtual haunted event, finish my costume, and make one of party snacks I needed for tonight.
The shopping part just didn’t work out. I ended up coming home after wandering the Penn Station KMART muttering obscenities, because they didn’t have mini marshmallows. Neither did Duane Reade. This is what I get for procrastinating.
HoHoHo! Then I remembered I had a Duncan Hines Perfect Size cake mix at home. It was a strawberry cake, but it came with white frosting mix. I was pretty sure I still had some black gel left in the pantry, too. That’s all I need to make a Jack Skellington face. I could make this work!
I baked the cake last night, and frosted it this morning.
I took a spoon and carved an outline for his face in the frosting.
I colored the areas in with my gel.
HeeHeeHee! Instant cake!
