having a birthday on halloween means a party every year. whether we like it or not.
i used to not like it cuz i thought only witches were born on halloween and that i was found somewhere on a rotted broom and left at my parents' doorstep. that's cuz other kids thought it was weird when i told them i was born on halloween. they would tell me i was really a witch, lying, or making it up for attention. i thought that was pretty dumb cuz i would more than likely pick christmas instead cuz it wasn't scary and would make toys all day as an elf, if i was gonna make it up.
then shortly later on in life when i realized that every year was a paaar-tee where everyone got dressed up real silly and candy was given out for free was when i felt pretty lucky. and that i thought being born on christmas would either mean more presents or less presents cuz it would be 2 celebrations in one. and as a kid, i didn't wanna take my chances on the less presents. :>P
anywho, wanna know who else shares a booday/birthday with me?
Karyn thought it would be a great idea to share a halloween booday together and so we made a special silly halloween treat to help celebrate the occasion.
and seeing that we have our birthdays/booday on halloween, one may consider us strange, y'know, kinda like monsters or aliens or something.
or perhaps even like the one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eaters!?!?
check Karyn's creation HERE!
and mine here:
#1-i just made some vanilla cake shapes in a small whoopie pan. for some i glued them together with candy melt as shown in #2 but ended up using most of them alone as one little cake per cake pop.
for #3-6 i colored some of the leftover batter purple and turned that into cake pop dough. as you can see, i made small circle/oval shaped out of the purple dough. none were perfect and none matched. cuz, since when do monsters match?
some of the candy and more supplies are shown in #7-11 and for #12 i drew a face
on the teeny teeny tiny gingerbread man.
put those aside a sec and let's see what else i did:
it's basically a cake pop on top of a cake pop.
here's a better view on how the one-eyed one-horned guys were made using a banana candy sprinkle for the horn that i forgot to take a pic of for you:
ok that's how you make the face but
how are they people eaters?
oh my! that's crazy silly huh?
and dipping the shot glass in candy melt to finish the flying saucer is also in the cray cray category.
but uh oh!...
that was a close call!
thank goodness for toothpicks, a food crafter's best friend.
looks like they are coming over to our halloween birthday party!
but i think they are lost?!?!
who's their leader anyway?
looks like people it is.
i like people.
especially you guys.
what a fun way to spend a booday birthday!
thanks so much for celebrating early with Karyn and
one eye i!
