Halloween week....! Not so exciting around here. With a pumpkin allergy, my love spent every Halloween in the emergency room -- needless to say, Halloween is not our favorite holiday. Although, this year, I made a special Halloween cake, that may just make Halloween fun again for us :)
Doesn't it look yummy? Chocolate cake... orange frosting for the pumpkin, green for the stem?
Wait... what's that inside?
Can you see it?
Why, there's a candle in my Jack-o-Lantern cake!
We greatly enjoyed this new Jack-o-Lantern Halloween Cake! Thanks, Amanda, for a way to make Halloween fun again for us :)
