Halloween Treats

Here are the eyeball truffles everyone voted on the other day. They are spice cake with cream cheese frosting dipped in white chocolate. The centers are royal icing in green and dark chocolate colored black. I think everyone liked them at recipe group.

To make my dear friend, Dee, happy I made chocolate cuppies too. They are colored black in the spirit of Halloween. The filling was an orange sweet cream. The decorations are made with fondant. TFL and Happy Halloween!

Dee- Maybe I'll make some chocolate cuppies too.

Pumpkin Cake Truffles

This is my first attempt at cake truffles or cake balls. I like them but would like it if the bottoms of the truffles looked cleaner. The chocolate pools at the bottom, next time I think I will put them on a rack so the chocolate can drip down. I also have a few air bubbles that I should have pricked with a tooth pick. Oh well. They were just a test run.

I am going to try eyeballs next for a recipe group I belong to. If any of my recipe group friends are reading- what flavor are you in the mood for. I was thinking spice cake with cream cheese frosting. Wish me luck.

Fall Cake

This cake was made for a local organization. They asked for chocolate and fall colors so this is what I came up with. It is devils food cake with dark chocolate buttercream. The outside is encircled with pirouette cookies. The flowers are made with fondant and the center are gold dragees. Thanks for looking!
