Skull Cake Roll for Halloween
I keep thinking : "where did the Summer go?" Our garden is nearly done producing for the season and we are so reluctant to say good bye this year. It's been a great green season.
October is knocking on the door.
Halloween season is here!
Local pumpkin patch is open.
Apple picking is in the full swing.
Leaves are falling, days are shorter.
Fall has graced us with her presence.
Earlier this year I had fallen head over heals for pattern cake rolls. They are so fun to make, and today I make a Skull cake roll for Halloween.
