Halloween Night Dessert Table

 This Halloween Dessert Table has a vintage feel with the dark backdrop and the Man in
the Moon cake as a centerpiece. The movie Hugo showcased the black and white French film "Voyage to The Moon." It is known as the first science fiction film ever made. The iconic scene of the moon in that film really stuck with me and it was the inspiration for this cake. I vividly remember trick or treating under the light of the moon with nothing but the sounds of the night and the distant shouts of other children. It is a tradition that seems to be slowly fading away. I tried to capture the feel of those dark fall nights here.
 Plastic pumpkins adorn the chocolate cupcakes with
marshmallow frosting.
 Spice donuts with vanilla bean frosting are sweet but a welcome alternative to candy.

 The fondant face is hand sculpted with details painted and dusted. While fondant is still fresh, it can be molded if you work quickly.

 I found the vintage sign holders on etsy.
 The mini artist canvases are from Michael's. They make a good base for the candy labels.

 I remember when trick or treating meant a bag of candy, not just one little piece!
 These cookies were fun to make they stand out against the orange pearls.
 I stamped the crow and cut around it with a sharp knife.

 The cameos are made from silicone molds. Putting them in the freezer for about 5 minutes makes for easier release and ensures the details come through.
A simply sprinkled cupcake is always good to add to the mix.

 I have a mix of plastic and fondant fangs on the cupcakes. These are fondant. Some to eat and some to play with!
I love these vintage picks. I am glad they are making them again.
