Trick or Treat?

No recipes here...surely no one is loony enough to want to go to the trouble of making these! And, so I present a photo gallery of my latest stirrings in the lab.

First, gotta set that cauldron to berlin'.

Wow, sugar gets really hot and hardens REALLY fast! First attempt. Maybe too hot?

Ahh...much better luck this round. We might be getting the hang of this (only cause Debbie was pouring!). The yellow irises are all set in their silicone mold.

So what are we supposed to do with all this leftover sugar?? Hm...swirlies!

Ooooh pretty.

Alright, back to work! No wonder I'm blind and hunchbacked. Doing my best to trim off the extraneous bits and bobs.

Fabulous sclera layer! Who knew there was white opaque food coloring out there...

Almost there!

This is the tricksiest part of the whole recipe...just look at all the zucchini I've crammed into that cupcake batter. Ha!

Time for the enpupilation! Guess I forgot to mention that I molded the eyelids out of cocoa tinted marzipan? Fun stuff.

Shhhhh...don't tell those wretched kids that that's tofu frosting! Muahahahaha.
It's divine I must say. Do try it if you know what's good for you.

And to think I could have just made those darling little pumpkins on the marzipan box. As if!!

Not sure what kind of eye this is supposed to be. Monster said he wanted a dragon eye. I asked him what that was supposed to look like and he hadn't a clue. :-)
