Cristina Cooks Roasted Pumpkin Cheese Fondue
Embodying the spirit of Glinda the Good Witch from "The Wizard of Oz," Cristina waves her wand to make a fun and festive fondue using a hollow pumpkin. She puts toasted bread in the bottom of the pumpkin, so cheese doesn't ooze out while baking. Then, she mixes champagne with chicken broth and pours spoonfuls into the pumpkin. Cristina adds a layer of a 3-cheese blend to top it off. The kitchen counter also features other haunted treats, such as black caramel apples for the Evil Witch and a special dragon creation.

Princess & Pea Cookies
Jessie Jane has another mystical project today, making a plush cookie cake bed reminiscent of the "Princess & the Pea" fable. She builds a headboard and footboard to frame the layer cake that acts as the mattress. Then, Jessie creats a blanket and pillow out of a sheet of fondant. Lastly, tuck a hidden pea into the bottom layer to see if the princess can detect the bump. Sweet dreams!
We would like to thank Amy Atlas for the recipe.
