Cake project with Brownies...

Cake cutting with the  Gypsy is so much easier since you can line up the cuts after you place the gumpaste!
Aren't these too cute?! The detail is surprising!
I know Halloween is over but I had to post these few last projects since they turned out so well. I made these for Halloween/Juliette Low's Birthday for my Girl Scout troop(Brownies). I am finally getting the hang of my cake and I can't wait to do more. First off I used my Gypsy so it was so simple to load the mat for my cuts. Also having more experience I rolled my gumpaste even thinner than before and had really good results! A third factor was placing the mat with the gumpaste in the fridge for just a few minutes while I moved the pumpkins around on the G :) Then to remove them from the mat I placed them in the fridge for a few more minutes...not too long but just to make them cooler. I used a toothpick to remove the eyes, nose and mouth while they were still on the mat. I am wondering if we'll be able to load our imagine cartridges onto our G then cut those shapes with our Cake. Wheels are turning!

The second project was some cute little cupcakes made with battery tea lights. I can't remember where I saw this idea but it wasn't mine...I used the SU scalloped circle with just a strip of paper from the Halloween glitter stack that was already out! lol. I used my favorite sookwang tape for the side paper again and the girls loved them. These would be cute party favors or table decorations for a party as well!! Or, maybe some fall colors for Thanksgiving buffets or Christmas papers to decorate each place setting?

Thanks for stopping by and adding your thoughts....
