Blood Orange bloodbath, witch head treats, and a taxidermy baby eel

Here's a rather eclectic mix of things from my ADD brain, hehe. Another take on my bleeding blood oranges (but with much more blood), my witch head treats (which don't really look edible!), and a taxidermy baby eel. God, I'm having so much FUN!!!!!!!!

Witch's eggs and graveyard brownies

I made a basket of witch's eggs, with green ooze, and graveyard brownies! I made the brownies last Halloween as well, although they're a bit different this time (more "dirt", hehe). I  originally snapped a pic of the brownies with a little shovel, then decided against it. Fun times!!! I think Halloween is the only time I make dessert like things. I'm definitely a "savory" maker. Oh, and weird stuff too ;-).

Witchy Tomatoes and a crab with lunch

I'm rolling out the Halloweeny Heirloom black tomatoes! Black tomatoes actually do exist. They're super sweet and yummy!! The other piece is a wee crab on a rock with "lunch", aka fishies.

Pomegranate Heads

I had to do it :-/. Yep, making Pomegranates led to the heads again! But hey, they're on a platter this time instead of a basket, hehe. My younger sister loves it when I make the heads. She rarely asks me to make her anything (although I used to when she had a 1/2" scale lighthouse), but yesterday she asked me to make her....a pelican. Suddenly, pelicans are her favorite animal, go figure.

Creepy....uh, seafood!?

I made another version of my hideous fish, complete with deadly teeth, and a nausea inducing Eel Pie! Pieces like these are one of my favorites to make ;-). Hey, Blogger got alot faster!!!

Two Cornish Hens

Not three, but two. And no partridge in a pear tree :-/. Nearly done with a commission, this time for peaches, a chilled seafood platter, and roasted cornish hens. This one I made to list. These hens are yummy. I remember my mom used to deep fry them, as in submerge them whole in hot oil. She's done the same thing with turkeys and chickens, too. It's hell on the arteries, but oh so yummy!! I've always wanted to try Turducken (A chicken in a duck in a turkey, like a Russian nesting doll!).

A customer of mine is going to be making a roombox just like the one pictured. When she showed me the pic, I gasped. WANT!!! NOW!! She asked me to make her some pomegranates, grapes, and plums. I made the poms- the piece pictured is not hers because hers is on a brass plate. I have to be honest...I was excited to make some without showing one cut open, haha!! The seeds can drive me nuts, but I do it if asked ;-).
