There were some disasters with it, too...After joking that my son would eat the grim reaper's head off the cake as a late night snack; due to a problem with a misplaced dowel rod, the head rolled off anyway. I replaced it, and think it came out even better than it was originally (updated version pictured below.) I love how the finished cake looked all set up at my friend's house, pictured in the bottom photo below.
I have other cakes I'll be doing in November, and will post pics. I wish all a safe and Happy Halloween!
