This not-so-friendly winged critter takes a menacing turn, thanks to a spooky color palette and a fearsome fondant-feature expression. Shape cookie wings in a 10 in. x 2 in Heart Pan and form the head and torso from cakes baked in Animal Crackers and Oval pans.

I made a 14x18 inch cake for a party.
I used color-flow to make a haunted house, head stones, a scarey tree, and ghosts.
I used necco wafers to make a path leading away from the house through the graveyard. It looked so cool!

I made this cake for Halloween. I decorated the haunted house, and instead of the cookies, I made chocolate tumb stones using the candy molds. It came out really nice!

I made this cake and it turned out beautifully. The only thing is that I couldn't put the same cookies that were on the cake as the cookies would not stay up.
