alternatively titled when I felt bad for always trying to make you guess stuff: Snake Cake

This is the last of the Halloween treats for me. I dont know about you, but I have been looking at and thinking about and creating Halloween stuff for over a month now. Its time for Thanksgiving!

But not quite yet.

This is my Medusa cake. It is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and milkchocolatesnakes.

Seriously could not be easier to do. Melt some chocolate in plastic bag in microwave. Pipe out weird snake lookin like shapes. Let cool.

Make cake.

Make frosting.

Stick snakes in top of cake.


Just dont look at it too long…


Er, wait. Or is it that you are not supposed to look at it at all?


Or that she cant catch you looking at her???

Ugh. I should have thought this through more.

You can just go right ahead and look at this cake all you want! So there mythical scary-in-her-day-but-not-quite-anymore creature!


Now you go and have a happy and safe and sweet filled Halloween.

Thats an order. 😉

Here is the Chocolate Cake Recipe and  Chocolate Frosting Recipe!
