A Unique Cake Design For Halloween

This Halloween dessert party sent to me by Aaliyah of The Sweetest Affair caught my eye for it’s creative cake centerpiece, and the fact that it could actually be re-created by a novice cake decorator. The cake is simply covered in fondant to look like a tree stump and then draped fabric underneath mimics the roots that spread out above ground. To further enhance the design, brownie bites and oreos are placed to add edible texture. Of course the lollipop flowers add a pop of color and even more interest to the display.

Aaliyah also hung decorated cookies from above the table, and added a welcome table with martini glasses filled with coordinating treats.

There were several sweets vendors who contributed to this party and each item is beautifully executed. I think this concept would work equally well for any woodland or outdoorsy themed party.  What do you think – could you re-create this tree stump dessert display?
