wendy the witch II

today i entered Polka Dot Bake Shop's ghoulish cupcake and cake contest. everyone loved the first wendy et. all so i decide to stick with the same basic design. the candy corn plate was a great find - it fit the layout i had in mind perfectly!

the only new addition was a full moon in the pumpkin patch. the pumpkins might have been my favorite part this time.

but then again, my so-cute-i-have-a-crush-on-them ghosts were back.

here is wendy the witch the second. i learned some things the first time, think she is improved (i just didn't have enough coffee in me and put her on black instead of green icing making her harder to see :)  )

so here is my entry, ready to go!

drum roll please....
(insert drum sound)

i won!! first prize, woohoo!!

here are some of my winnings: awesome cupcake/other things stand, five bags of sprinkles, two gel dyes and sparkle dust (not be the official names), two tips, wrappers, candles, and more. if you decorate, you know these are some fabulous supplies!

i was like a little kid, so proud of my "ribbon" all afternoon (ok, still am :)  ). as i have said i love halloween so i couldn't have picked a better contest to win!
