More from HP-07

These are the last pictures from the party. These first ones are of the Haunted gingerbread house my DD1 decorated. I got up early and stuck all the pieces together (they need an hour between each "gluing" to set) and she did the decorating. I think it came out just darling!




These are my cat poop cookies. Served in the grape-nuts "cat litter" and litter box. Complete with a pooper scooper! Unfortunately no one and I mean no one ate a single one! There were 2 kinds of "poop" chocolate and gingerbread, made with whole wheat flour and honey.

I made this pumpkin, really a Jack-O-Lantern, cake. It was a from scratch pumpkin flavored cake. It is a wonderful recipe!! no one cut into that all night either, so I ended up bringing it to work on Monday.

I made this mummy out of cheese logs. DD1 used the pastry bag with thinned down cream cheese to actually create the mummy. Again no one would eat him!

This shows The whole desert table.

Here is the actual food table. Can you find the "vertebrae" on the platter??

These are some friends from work. Who dressed up like work dorks?? They did!
Ahhh here is me as a vampire with my friend "Cher" aka Shelby (the one my DD! was named after and she is DD2's Godmother.

Here I am trying to feed off of my friend Hiro. He is a visiting MD from Japan. He and his wife, my friend, Yuki, are here for 2 more years.

Karen, my friend from Brazil, and me. She is working on her post doc in our lab. She is such a sweetie and was TOTALLY fascinated with Halloween since they don't have it in Brazil

Karen and Hiro (I wonder who did Hiro's make-up since Yuki was still in Japan visiting??)

Aren't they so sweet? It is Karen again with her boyfriend, Cory.


All in all it was a great night!! The party moved outside into the gazebo in the back yard. My DH put the heaters on the propane tanks and we were quite comfortable in the slightly damp, chilly night. just purrrrfect for a Spooktacular Halloween evening!

What fun! Your desserts are hilarious and funny... the kitty litter? OMG... that is the most disgusting-mental challenge ever-I've got to try that!

I can't even imagine why no one ate from the litter box, imagine... !! It looks like y'all had a fantastic time.

Wow, what fantastic food. you guys did an amazing job. love the mummy. I was thinking "who wouldn't eat the cat poop cookies?", but then I took a look at them. eeeeyah. a little real. but still, I'd think someone would do it just to gross everyone out. how do they actually taste? throwing ramen noodles in there seems like it would throw the flavors off. would definitely be a fun thing to play with. I've made some chocolate oatmeal cookies that came out far more disgusting looking than I'd like - they'd probably work great!
