Happy Halloween 2014

For  long time I have watched and admired all the talented people who have built fantastic cakes, model coated or decorated with different designs in sugar paste, but did not dared to try it myself, partly because I do not like sugar paste or marzipan on cakes ... and partly because I did not know how. However, a few weeks ago, I tried anyway to make such a cake ... a baby's cradle, which I got a lot of credit for ... and that of course gave me the confidence I needed to try it again now.
Today's "cake" is actually not a real cake. I was unsure if I would succeed with this project, so I made no real cake base to it. I took a real pumpkin instead and coated it in orange sugar paste, modeled the face and colored. Even the eyes and the spider is completely made of sugar paste.
Now afterwards, when I see the result, I regret that I cheated with the base, but even if the cake is not eateble, I still think it's a cool decoration for Halloween, ...... and I also got to practice and learn a lot ...
Happy Halloween Everyone!
