Ghosts in the Graveyard

by on October 26, 2007 · 7 comments

Here’s my rendition of Ghosts in the Graveyard and I have to admit, making it was a lot of fun.

My big idea for Nabisco is to make special Halloween edition Cameo cookies that say R.I.P.. Or better yet, make them kind of an off grey (yet still appetizing) color and put a border on them and write R.I.P. plus random names and inscriptions. You know, funny ones like at the Disney Haunted Mansion.

I think it’s funny that nobody has commented on the picture on the left-hand side of the screen. What is she dressed up as?

Great job on the cake. Love the ghosts — is that a meringue or??

Hope you have a great party.

We’re just putting finishing touches on things at the moment.

Emilie, that’s part of a Brownie uniform. I haven’t ironed on any patches yet.

Anonymouse, thanks! The white stuff is Cool Whip. I put it into a little baggie, snipped off the bottom corner and squeezed it out so that it would have a bit of a peaked top. In Kraft’s video, they just spoon it on and form the peaks with a spoon. For the eyes, I used black gel — the kind that comes in a tube. Both grocery stores near me have been out of black gels and icings for the past week. I guess they got a new shipment because there was one left today.

I wish it was my idea, but it is straight out of the Kraft Test Kitchen.

There’s a similar recipe called “dirt cake”. I think what finally convinced me to make this spin on it was that a few weeks ago, Fuzz came home from school talking about an “amazing” dessert someone’s mom had brought in for a class birthday celebration. From her description, I gathered it was dirt cake. She barely remembers cupcakes, but she had plenty to say about dirt cake.
