Here is the October TD...

As always two contestants... Two great cakes... Spooky and Halloweeny...

Descriptions:

Contestant #1
Haunted Mansion:
This three-tier topsy-turvey haunted mansion consists
of carved 9", 7", and 5" tiers. Gumpaste trick-or-treaters are
spooked by a gumpaste mummy, a flying witch on her broom, a spider,
pumpkins, a spooky tree, and a bloody hand coming out of the grave.
All the figures are hand-molded. Cake is covered in chocolate fondant
using a wood impression mat. The roof is made from fondant cutouts
using a rose petal cutter. A fondant covered back board holds the
moon and a flying ghost to complete the scene. I used the durable
chocolate and white recipes on CC for the layers (the three fillings
include caramel, nutella, and pumpkin spice. )


Contestant #2
Witches Brew -
2 tiered cake decorated with buttercream icing and
accented with gumpaste and fondant figures. Bottom tier is a double
chocolate cake with chocolate caramel filling. Top tier is a vanilla
pound cake with chocolate hazelnut Italian cream. Both cakes iced
with buttercream icing. Moon, Witch, pumpkins, cat, bats, tombstone,
rocks and lamps all made out of homemade gumpaste. The moon is
accented with yellow luster dust around the edges for that spooky
evening glow. The freshly dug grave is shaved /chopped chocolate
pieces. Board covered with black fondant.

These are both fabulous and yes, the hardest one to choose yet. They both have great colors and great detail!

Can we deem it a tie? There are both awesome cakes. One cake is better than the other in one area, then the other cake is better in another area.

Hey pinklesley1,

I almost didn't open this link as it wasn't obvious from a quick glance that it was a TD (to me anyway icon_redface.gif ). I just noticed the "Halloween" in the subject line. I think perhaps if you changed the title to just October TD like the others perhaps we'll get more votes ???? (just my 2 cents icon_smile.gif ).

Anyway, once again good luck to both contestants and fabulous job on both cakes. I love all the detailed work in both! thumbs_up.gif

I didn't know that it was a TD either...luckily I clicked on it because those are both fabulous cakes!

Wow! Great cakes! It's going to be a hard decision. It looks like both cakes took a lot of planning and hard work. Love all the creative details on both cakes! Thanks to both participants for sharing their cakes with us!

Wow! These are BOTH just GREAT! I, too, love Halloween! From Oct 31 through January 1 I'm ALL ABOUT THE HOLIDAYS and Halloween just "jump starts" me!

Good Luck to both contestants and you are BOTH winners as far as I'm concerned!

Its to bad that more people dont vote for these TD,S !
I wonder if a lot of people dont see the thread ?
I didnt, I had to pm someone that Had talked about it and see when it was. Its so easy to miss lots of things on the site !

Would love to see more votes! I've seen throwdowns with over 600 votes - we only have 200! Come on people, you need practice voting for the November presidential elections anyway icon_wink.gif

Fiddlesticks...that could be part of the problem. I usually don't see the threads in time and the voting has already passed me by. Kinda sucks!

Now that we have a Cupcake Forum we should have cupcake throwdowns - I don't think I've ever seen one - maybe I just missed it??
