Champagne Wishes and Candied Apple Dreams

So please disregard my previous oh-so-cynical post.  We got the place!!! Hardwood floors, fireplace, ten foot ceilings and Victorian charm. Thus my lack of posts.  I've been super busy moving and reveling in the awesomeness of my new place.  But great craftiness has still been happening in my life and thus some post dated blog posts are badly needed!

Halloween this year was pretty hectic, since it was the day of the big move.  Also, I committed to making some deliciousness for my company's Halloween party in addition to putting my home made champagne bottle costume together.  It was a rough few days.  The outcome has been fantastic though. Everyone loved my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies the second time around ( I was specifically asked to make them again for the party, yay!) and were very impressed with these beautiful candied apples I made.  People couldn't tell if they were real or not and were very tentative in eating them. Finally after being assured they were indeed edible those who ate them raved that they were delicious.  While they didn't turn out like my inspiration apples (check out mattbites.com) I was able to salvage them and turn them into something really cool and creepy looking.




The process actually wasn't that hard, mostly sugar and corn syrup heated to the correct temperature.  Halloween turned out pretty great too, I wore my champagne costume to work on Friday and headed out Saturday night as a little wicked witch, accompanied by my sexy date Mr. Pink. . .
