I know I’m in the middle of promoting a Book Release and everything, but let’s not forget the true meaning of October: HALLOWEEN!! I don’t know about you, but this month officially kicks off my Holiday Season. This year, with my book just coming out, writing Holiday articles, and planning a lot of life changes with Husband (a blog for another time!), I am almost inclined to ignore Halloween completely. But I just can’t let that happen. So here’s a recipe for 3-D Skull cake for your Halloween or Day of the Dead Celebration, courtesy of one kick-ass lady: Photographer Hailey of Wicked Hailey Photography (TX).
“The first one I made I made a traditional chocolate cake and dusted with powdered sugar (recipe below). I made a 2nd one today and documented it much more. My husband loves Funfetti or Rainbow Party cake mix from the box (~ EYE ROLL~) so I made this one for him. I hate all store bought icing so I made a Royal Icing (recipe below). This not only glued the parts of the skull together, but also makes a hard shell for the cake. Also, the wine is a necessary supply! Enjoy!” – Wicked Hailey
