Fun with Food

Being nearly Halloween, I thought I would make a witch cake.
Sometimes it's great fun to play with food or be creative. 

I saw the cutest green witch fingers at the Dollar store.  I thought they would look great surrounding a cake.
They are actually suckers, so I cut off the sticks.  Afterwards, I know I need something for the top of the cake. It looked too plain.  Aha, an idea occurred to me. A witch stencil.  I looked online and found a cute stencil.  I found mine here.  The printables are free, providing you like them on Facebook.

I used green candy sparkles for the top.  It goes with the green witch fingers.

We had another dinner party and decided to make the brie more festive.
