Casper the Cake...A donation story....

I hope I caught your attention with my title.
Here's a little story about a cake.....

I was contacted earlier in the week asking
if my sister and I would be interested in donating
a baked good to our local elementary school for
their Fall Carnival. Since we both have kids at
Greenbrier Elementary, of course I said we'd be
happy to donate a cake for the "cake walk".

Not only was it for a good cause, it would also help
us get our name out there as someone to go to for
cakes as well as cupcakes.

As I was thinking about what to make, for some
reason this little ghost cake keep coming into my head.
Since it's so close to Halloween and all, I thought
this would be great for the cake walk.

Now, we could have done easy and simple,
but nooooooo, the one I had in mind was more complicated.

He's four layers tall, he's covered in homemade marshmallow
fondant, he's cute and edible. What more could you ask for?

So without further delay - I present "Casper"

He stands about 9-10 inches tall and I guess
he weighs about 8-10 lbs.

After I delivered him this morning I was told
that he probably wouldn't make it to the cake walk
after all, but would become part of the auction!
We were thrilled with that news!

So if you have a chance tonight, head over to
Greenbrier Elementary School for their
Fall Carnival. It's from 5-8pm.

Maybe you can take "Casper" home!
