My husband took charge of decorating our yard for Halloween a few years ago and um, let's just say his taste in decor and mine differ a lot. We've got a graveyard by the front entrance that is pretty spooky. That's not too bad. Then last year he installed a zombie right next to our front door that has sensor to scream and shake when someone approaches. I made him turn it off. But this year, he added a baby. It's a human baby and would be super cute except it's got spiders crawling all over it, including a few crawling out of it's mouth. And for added shivers, he bought a bag of spiders to scatter around the baby.
We've gotten some comments, and they're not of the "I love your yard" sort.
See, I much prefer the cutesy side of Halloween. When I was decorating the yard we had adorable pumpkins, a colorful witch (so not scary) and some silly skeletons. But, y'all, I just don't have it in me anymore to decorate for both Halloween and Christmas. So I stopped putting Halloween things out. My family freaked and now my husband does it.
These cone cakes are very much in line with my style of Halloween decorating. I mean, come on, aren't they just darling? I loooove them. So cute!!
Below is a short video on how easy they are to make without needing any special tools. It would've been quicker with cookie cutters but I didn't have any that were small enough to top cone cakes. Plan to spend a couple of hours working on the toppers, depending on how many you're making. I use Fondarific Fondant brand, but any will work.
