Spooky Stuff

First, I'll start with a horrific story. I ran into an old classmate at a high school get-together. Some losers never change. He was drunk and obnoxious and he even tried to sexually harass me. I was seriously traumatized.

I've been decorating for the season. This is my new favorite decoration. I got it at Just A Bed Of Roses. It's the funnest store ever!

I made this lovely creation for a family get together. It was a big hit.
Dumpster Cake

3/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. pure vanilla
Heat cream until boiling, stirring constantly. Pour over chocolate chips. Stir until completely melted and add vanilla. Put in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
1 Chocolate Cake mix
Follow directions on the box and put mix in a bundt pan. Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate chip mixture in the batter - reserving 1/4 cup. This will create a "lava" filling. Bake according to directions. Remove from pan immediately (flip onto a serving platter).
1 large vanilla instant pudding mix
1 small chocolate instant pudding mix
Green food coloring
Make up puddings. Add green coloring to half of the vanilla pudding. When cake is cool drizzle puddings and reserved chocolate (reheated) and decorate with gummy worms, candy corns, Reese's pieces and anything else you like - that will look gross. (Gummy Rats, Body parts, etc.)
BEWARE! It is very yummy!

Festive decorations! I love them!!

So is that bag of bones sitting in the corner of your room with the chains the rude classmate?

He deserves to be shot!

First of all, WHO WAS IT? Next, love the decor. And especially the cake. Good to see a post from you. It's been ages.

I love all your decorations and your new one is so cute. I need to check out that link.
The dumpster cake looks right up my alley too - Looks wicked but tastes yummy :-D

P.S. Some of those guys from H.S. never change - why don't they get a life.

I can bear testimony to the adorableness that is the festive atmosphere Krista has created in her home!! OH!! And she has an AWESOME FAMILY!! ;D So thanks for the visit! So FUN!

NOW I have something to make with my granddaughters on Friday while they're out of school and with us. Last time they made their own headache bags and for their mom and had fun. I put away the sewing machine so I thought we'd do some fun things in the kitchen. YAY!!

Would you mind if I share this on my "Tasty... Or Not..." blog after we do it and credit/link back to this post? (((HUGS)))

Sorry that your experience was traumatizing…

Some people just don't seem to get it.

Hopefully you are over the trauma of harassement.

Eyeballs on display...awesome.

The dump cake...........gag!
Totally creative.

Donda said...

That cake looks super good but awfully labor intensive. I don't know if I would have the patience.

Karen said...

Your decorating was so cool! I loved it.

I am going to have to hear more about your scary story. YIKES!!

Late on the uptake here, but had to comment anyways.

As for the harassment, I've got my glove ready!! ;)
