I'm assuming that your friend opposes Halloween for religious reasons. I don't really get her/his request either. If she/he doesn't like the holiday than start a tradition that better reflects his/her views. I don't like to get involved in negative reactions. See if your friend could offer positive views on what they would like to celebrate. Here's an example- I went to Catholic school way back in the day when we had some very strict nuns. Our teacher did not approve of Halloween parties but would allowed us to dress up as saints. Not as much fun as the other class parties but she did make the party theme fit her point of view. Good luck and I hope that your friend can develop a happy alternative party theme.

You might really need to get some clarification from your friend. Never hurts to ask questions.

Perhaps a fall (or harvest) festival cake with apples and pumpkins and corn, with a scarecrow? That's what my son's school always required...not "anti" Halloween, but still appropriate for the season.

ok the story is there is this guy who always throws a party, demands you dress up or you cant come, invites his mom, little sister and her friends, and the parties always suck

so they are throwing their own "anti-halloween" party instead of going to his

So, then basically that would be a "normal" party - with no dressing up? I would do something like a fall type cake, with leaves or a cornucopia. You may need a little more direction from them> icon_cool.gif

Our church does a fall festival about the time for Halloween. Lat years cake had cornucopias, fall flowers and leaves on it. I agree you need more direction from the person you are making this cake for.

If they are doing it to poke fun of the Halloween Party you could really play on that. I am thinking a cake with ghosts, but with a cross over them, like no ghosts allowed, or a house that isn't haunted at all, but instead is kind of happy and cheerful in the fall season. Maybe even a witch out front, but she is more like the good witch and more fairy like. If you do sculptures you could do a couple trick or treaters coming up to the door, but it has a sign reading "No costumes allowed".

That is what I think of when I head Anti-Halloween. If it for religious reasons you could incorporate some aspects of the belief into it.

Just a few ideas.

What about a carnival booth, that is a "Shoot Out," instead of cans it can be a witches hat, ghost, candy corn, pumpkins, spiders. You could mold a little rifle out of fondant.

I get it now - it's a spoof!
Some possibles I've seen around:
12 - 12 - 12 twice as evil
Boo Humbug
Jack-o'lantern with the 'no' slash across.
I don't do costumes; now step aside, you're standing on my invisible dog.
Just put the candy in the (plain paper) bag!
Plain white buttons with the name of a Halloween symbol on them in block letters - ie: WITCH, DEVIL
-
Make it fun, everything decorated with just block letters; from the 'welcome mat' in front of the door - haunted house here - strings hanging from the ceiling holding signs that say 'bat' and 'spider; 'Shower at your own risk' on the shower curtain;
Everyone in jeans and white tshirts with a sign on front and back identifying the costume.

7yyrt, that's what I was thinking. Silly spoof stuff. I like the plain white button with the costume name on them - that's clever!

luvmysmoother Posted 19 Oct 2010 , 2:35pm

How about make it Christmas themed rather than Halloween themedicon_smile.gif Or maybe with angels, light pastel colours, and happy faces all over it - that's pretty anti-Halloween...

Herekittykitty Posted 19 Oct 2010 , 5:13pm

I don't get it. Why on earth would anyone want to have an ANTI-Halloween party? icon_confused.gif Just have your own party where dressing is optional.

I'm too much of a Halloween freak to understand that, well that's not true, I get it, just can't fathom it.

How about a simple orange and black cake with simple writing:

Any resemblance to Halloween is purely coincidental.

You'd have to write really small...

caferock05 Posted 19 Oct 2010 , 5:36pm

I think she should rename her party to a "anti-costume" or "costume optional" party... This way it does not give the idea of her boycotting Halloween.. instead boycotting that guy's rule of mandatory costume- (Which is how I understood it)

Why don't you tell her your idea of the eyeball cake (sounds cool!) and she if that rolls with her...

7yyrt Posted 19 Oct 2010 , 5:38pm

How about one of the "HAPPY EVERYTHING" designs?
That would have the costumes to the MAX!

I made a list of all the ideas and she decided on a Boo Humbug cake....so we're gonna do a 2 tier cake, one tier lime green, the other bright orange, with those colors and purple ghosts all over and Boo Humbug written on it.

thanks for all of the responses =)

I love it. That will be adorable and I can't wait to see pictures.

Karen421 Posted 20 Oct 2010 , 11:48am

Yes - make sure you post pictures!!! (Please)

JanessaJo Posted 31 Oct 2010 , 2:24pm

Well there was no boo humbug cake, so I can't post pics. My friend thought I was doing the cake for free, meaning I was going to pay for all the supplies out of pocket, which I definitely could not afford. I was so excited about making this cake too!

Boooo! lol

cabecakes Posted 31 Oct 2010 , 2:36pm

AAAWWWWWWW! Why do people do that! People act like you can pull one of these cakes out of your A$$ for free.

Crazboutcakes Posted 31 Oct 2010 , 3:17pm

I totally agree, just turn someone down after she decided to call me on a Wednesday to say she still wanted her cake done ( 1/2 sheet fondant butt legs back, cake with a corset on it) for that Saturday morning and I work full time and also have a family to tend to another order I took from my supervisor for cup cakes for Friday ( I am such an idiot) but she ordered and than I was off she was off she was sick she was sick Day 2) I am off and now I'm still waiting and I don't even know if she realizes I bought them in even though she wasn't there .... sooo pi$$ed at me! For allowing it.

mom2twogrlz Posted 31 Oct 2010 , 3:21pm

Oh man, that is too bad. Maybe next year!

CutiePieCakes-Ontario Posted 31 Oct 2010 , 3:45pm

Why not do a wedding cake? Small enough for the requirements, but big enough to get the idea across.
