TrueBlood End of Season
It was the end for TrueBlood - at least for the season. And I had to do something. I mean it's going to be months before I see my HBO friends again and after getting to know them so well from reading their stories - thanks to Charlaine Harris, it's hard to be away from them for so long.
So, I invited a few girlfriends over to share the finale. And we had to eat and drink a little. So I made a Fanpire Cake, some magical cupcakes and we said a toast with a little "Bat Juice". Oh, and we had a little finger food ;)
Here's how I did it.
The finger food was just breadsticks that I stuck almond slivers on and brushed with butter before I baked them.
I made a couple of cakes and frosted them with a whipped cream frosting then I covered it with red fondant.
I sprayed some Wilton Color Mist - Food Color Spray on top of the cake using a vampire stencil. Then I added some frosting to cover the connections.
And, added some fondant bats to finish it off.
I bought a couple of labels and taped them over my favorite wines to give them some added TrueBlood charm
It was a fun party but I was disappointed with what the writers did to Tara. It had me crying in my green witch hat cupcakes.
