A Fanciful Twist Halloween Party!






It's finally here!  I am so happy to have you come to my party, and I hope you will also visit A Fanciful Twist and all the other delightful halloween parties!  I know I will be visiting each and every one of them with a cup of hot cider in my hand and a smile on my face.

To get into my party, you will need to have a special key to unlock the gate.









It is going to be a black cape optional event, but I do encourage stylish shoes and a mask.









All of my dearest friends will be there ready to dance and tell ghost stories and maybe even do some palm reading.  These girls know how to have a good time.                                                                    








   Because I am an animal lover, pets are always welcome to attend - even the flying variety.








Now that you here, let me show you around the enchanted village.







There are all kinds of shenanigans going. on because everyone is in the halloween spirit.  You can stop at the farm stand if you want for a pumpkin and some fresh cider.







I should warn you though, that across town things are a bit scarier.






This is where the ghosts, gargoyles, vampires and even a few monsters hang out. 






If I were you, I'd move quickly through the graveyard and for heaven's sake, don't play any tricks on anything anyone.  This isn't the kind of place for soaping windows or toilet papering the trees; not that I would know this from experience or anything.


Why don't we head back to my house for some refreshments?  I made a special cake for the occasion that I think you are going to like.






Lucious layers of delicate cake topped with Swiss meringue buttercream and piles of autumn flowers.






My halloween cake tastes good, for sure, but I also have a little surprise inside it.  You see, I always like to make me guests feel welcome.  You know, like extra toothpaste and fluffy towels for overnight visitors.  But for my halloween party, I wanted to make sure I had an extra hat and stockings in case anyone forgot theirs. And because it's a magical kind of party, I hid them in my cake.






That's right, a witch's hat with red and white stockings hidden inside the cake. 





So I hope you had a great time at the enchanted oven's party.  For my tutorial on how to make the cake, click here.

  68. Girl! You really, really know how to throw a party! As if the gray icing and lovely autumn flowers weren't enough, you figured out how to bake a surprise into your cake!

    Wow.

    The only surprise I ever end up with in mine is when I forget to crack the eggs.

    Okay.

    I've never, ever, ever technically done that.

    And that's all I'm saying!

    Thanks for a wonderful link to Alphabe-Thursday's Fall Break.

    I am all kinds of impressed with your mad baking skills.

    Wow.
