    He hates the Spice Girls, tries to use a drill to make gum paste strings for decoration, and knows what channel locks are. Yep, definitely a Man . . . About Cake.

    As for my costume, I'll be dressing up as a skeleton for work, but my husband wants us to dress up as peanuts so we can be "nuts" together.

    Long time ago I made and wore an autumn-themed costume  (that was inspired by "Marjorie the Trash Heap" on the puppet show "FRAGGLE ROCK")  to work which won 2nd place in the costume contest. It was a separate hood over a long sleeved maxi length dress out of soft, drape coral-orange knit fabric; covered over with preserved florist autumn leaves and stems that I had meticulously appliquéd by hand. The accessory was a fan rake and to remove ANY doubt as to what I was supposed to be, my name tag read: " Pile-a Leaves"!
    You could make an Pile of Leaves autumnal cake like that too.  Bet it would be gloriously golden and gorgeous!

    My best Halloween costume (or, at least, my favorite) was Eric Draven from The Crow. I was about twelve or thirteen, wore an all black outfit with a life-sized crow decoration stitched to the shoulder of my shirt (and of course I had the makeup). It was awesome, and we didn't even get to go trick or treating that year -_-
