Hey Stephani...........I FINALLY got to see the Halloween Cake Challenge last night and the only clue I will give you is all the cakes are awesome! I do have a favorite of the five though and will tell you which it is after you have seen the show.

Now, I have NOT seen the Halloween Gingerbread Challenge yet but will try to catch it today. Didn't even know it was coming on today so THANKS for the heads up on this one! icon_smile.gif

Ya'll do know that these challenges are really old right? I love Norm Davis but he didn't place! He's cake was sooo good! He should have gotten 2nd or 3rd. Duff's wasn't that great IMHO. icon_sad.gif

ummm...DON'T TELL ME! icon_lol.gif I don't get to watch them very often so they are not a repeat for me! icon_biggrin.gif

I will probably be watching them tomorrow since there is FOOTBALL today! icon_lol.gif and handing out candy! icon_biggrin.gif

it's not THAT old...although Bronwen does look quite different. it's from 2005 (the cake one, at least)...i know, i was there.

thanks for the head's up about the gingerbread one though...i've never seen that one!

I saw the cake/candy challenge but I have my tvo set to the gingerbread today! (so excited!)

The cake/candy challenge is awesome! The thing that blew my mind was the way Bronwen "sculpts" the fondant after it is on the cake! icon_eek.gif Watch for it - how the heck does she do that without tearing or stretching the fondant?!?! icon_confused.gif If anyone knows, please give out the secret thumbs_up.gif

2005 is old icon_smile.gif I wish they would come up with some new Challenges. I love to watch them! When I was at the ICES Convention Norm, Colette, Linda Shank, Kerry Vincent even Nick Lodge all said that foodtv should show more of the shows then they do. They said they joke & play around the whole time. I wish we could see that side of it. icon_smile.gif

BeckySue - the judge asked Bronwen how she does that. She has a LOT of frosting under the fondant, so she can "sculpt" by moving the frosting around under the fondant. They also stated that she practiced that cake over and over again. Practice makes perfect. icon_biggrin.gif

I'll have to watch the gingerbread episode. Too late to make a Halloween gingerbread house this year, but there's always next year.

Thanks for the heads up. I have already seen the Halloween cake challenge but not the gingerbread house one. It says 2007 so it must be new.

Bronwen is amazing. I´ve seen her doing that kind of modelling live and she makes it seem so easy.

Yes, Trick or Treat is here on the Sunday BEFORE Halloween! It has been like that ever since I was born! Some bad things happened in this town in the 70's and it's been that way ever since. I think they have been trying to change it but, haven't yet...parents still like it that way I guess!

I just got done giving out candy to like 100 kids! Big year here!

That is so funny - it is the opposite here in Utah. Halloween is always on the day of the week that it falls UNLESS it is Sunday - then most people go out the Saturday before. LOL Utah pretty much shuts down on Sunday....

I am watching the GB House challenge right now. It is just beginning, but these will be amazing if all goes acording to plan.....
