Pumpkin Carving Feast
Yesterday afternoon, our friends, Bryan & Joy, with their daughters, Sara & Sonya, came over for our pumpkin carving feast! We had a great time, visiting and carving pumpkins.
We took the pumpkins out to the front deck to pose with our finished creations...
For supper, I'd made chili, a hot bread dip with bread & crackers, tortilla chips and salsa and cut up veggies and dip. For desert, I'd borrowed my friend, Marlo's, bundt pan and made a chocolate cake shaped as a pumpkin. I'd iced together the two "tops" of the cakes made in the bundt pans and then added some rolled up cardstock to make the stem. I curled some strips of cardstock around a pencil to make some vines and cut out two of my PTI leaf print dies to make the leaves.
It was super fun-- something I'm hoping will become an annual tradition.
Thanks for looking!
