Happy Samhain!

So it's been a rough few days, and I spent most of the weekend at work helping with exhibitey stuff. My Halloween was really last night when Todd and Jenni came over and watched the original Wicker Man with me (this is my Halloween tradition, ok?) and we had pizza. Anyway, I got home a bit before nine, and I had decided earlier that the best way to start off a new year would be by bring baked goods to work. I found a maple recipe I liked the sound of, but the frosting would have been too sweet and I was too tired to experiment, so instead I made yellow cake cupcakes with a simple ganache to take in. They look (and taste--I checked, quality control and all!) pretty damn good if I do say so myself:



So, Happy Samhain, everybody!! Be safe and happy!

Happy Samhain to you, too, and hope it was a good and meaningful one!

(It's the original Wicker Man, right? Not the remake?)

CLEARLY. Accept no substitute or anything with Nic Cage EVER.

Friends don't let friends watch that HORRIBLE remake of Wicker. Insist on Christopher Lee at fine St. Howie burnings everywhere! (BTW, there's rumours afloat about a sequel to be done by Robin Hardy about American Christians moving to Summerisle).

Not a rumor! Wild Hunt has been reporting on it--I believe they recently finished shooting and it should be released next year! :D

ah, that's where I read it then. Mind turning into a sieve here. I just hope they capture the magic of the first one. I have the wooden box set of the DVD and even managed to track down the import CD of the soundtrack.

A) I am impressed with your baking skizillz. Yum!
B) You watched Wicker Man? Lucky you...I was forced to sit through all four of Disney Channel's 'HalloweenTown' movies - on pain of a confiscated candy stash, should I try to change the channel. They're just so BAD! So many things wrong! Such awful everything! (This is me being jealous of your grown-up movietime....)

It's one of my most favorite movies EVER. That is all. :) Though my Halloween was mostly spent at work, soooo....we're at a tie for last night?
