Tasty Tombstones available on Etsy!

I'm already frantically working on my own Halloween projects for this season, but don't forget my Tasty Tombstones printed frosting sheets are for sale again in my Etsy shop! Each set includes 13 designs digitized from my own carved foam Haunted Headstones.
Serve these realistic carved stone-look Tasty Tombstones for your Halloween party, or even your next "over-the-hill" birthday party! All the departed names are puns, so laugh or groan as you will. :) This set of 2 pre-printed frosting sheets decorates 13 Tasty Tombstones, the perfect spooky number! (Actual cookies not included in your purchase.)

Tasty Tombstones are available as "punny" name epitaph designs as pictured, blank to write your own epitaphs with icing or a food coloring pen, or custom printed epitaphs:

Tasty Tombstones 13 "Punny" Epitaphs

Tasty Tombstones 13 Blank Epitaphs

Tasty Tombstones 13 Custom Epitaphs

Your set of 2 frosting sheets will arrive via USPS Priority Mail in a food-grade airtight zip bag. Recipes & detailed instructions are included with your shipment. Store out of direct light to prevent fading. Best used within one year. The sheet lasts
better intact for shipping & storage, so do not cut out the shapes until just before using on your baked goods.  Up to 10 frosting sheets (65 tombstones) can be combined for the same shipping cost. Contact me if you'd like multiple quantities, then I will put up a custom listing specifically for your order. I use Kopykake frosting sheets & food inks, full ingredients included in the Etsy listings.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! Stay tuned for more Halloween fun, with project updates coming soon to the Britta Blvd blog!

Frightful Skull Fountain Kits back in stock for 2016!

I am pleased to announce that my Frightful Skull Fountain do-it-yourself kit is back in stock for 2016! This is an improved version since the instructions included inside my book Enhanced Eerie Elegance, with a customized skull funnel that works with a custom-cut cauldron handle support. Just add your own cauldron, and you're all set for a fantastic Halloween punch bowl!

Your Frightful Skull Fountain Kit includes:

Plastic Vertebrae Tube Skull Funnel, with custom black handle grip attached under the skull's chin

Plastic Skeleton Hand

U-shaped Wire Support for Skeleton Hand

3 feet Clear Vinyl Tubing, with black fountain pump nozzle already attached

Fountain Pump with extra nozzle (120 GPH, pumps up to 3ft high)

Custom-Cut Cauldron Handle Support

Step-By-Step Photo Instructions with Recipes and Dry Ice Tips

You need to supply your own plastic cauldron, and 12" to 16" diameter is recommended to look best with the size of the skull. The included instructions show the pot-belly cauldron style with curved lip usually found cheaply everywhere during Halloween season. If you have a different vessel, you will need to figure out how to attach the cauldron handle support to the edge of your vessel.

Please allow 1-2 weeks before shipping. Your kit ships USPS Priority Mail large flat-rate box for domestic US. International shipping by special request.

Halloween 2015 - Day of the Dead - Full Show

Happy Friday the 13th! Today we are pleased to announce the first video from Halloween 2015...the entire 15-minute front show!

For Halloween this year, we were inspired by the uniquely beautiful and creative Mexican traditions of Dia de los Muertos for our own Day of the Dead celebration! See a "live" skeleton mariachi band sing and play for their ghostly ancestors in a joyous graveyard celebration lit by hundreds of flickering candles below a glowing harvest moon! Designed for children of all ages, this show will bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.



Not only was the show running all night for my big party on October 24th, but we were able to advertise and run it 4 more nights including Halloween night, which was great fun for us to have so many others come watch our show!

I'm still working on coordinating a LOT of photos and even more video in the Halloween 2015 section, so keep watching Britta Blvd for more details coming soon!

Hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween like we did!

Halloween 2014 - The Story of Seven Spirits

The grandest Halloween yet was The Story of Seven Spirits, hosted by Miss Hermione G. Wells at Castle Brittahytta in 1914!

The Halloween 2014 teaser trailer was included with the party invitation:

Discover all six spirits haunting Castle Brittahytta as you explore the grounds, then listen carefully in the steampunk Library Laboratory as Miss Hermione G. Wells explains how and why she needs your help so you will be prepared for what comes next in the Main Event…

Enjoy the perspective of a party guest at Halloween 1914 hosted by Miss Hermione G. Wells as you are immersed in the interactive mystery told in 7 short acts over 2 hours, with a giant glowing-green-ectoplasm-powered steampunk device showing the “mad scientist” transmitting from Europe, the dead psychic medium leading the séance from inside an astral gateway vortex, and five ghosts summoned inside the large crystal ball using the positive mental energy of all the party guests participating in the séance…and there was even live interaction with Sir William Crookes and the Glowing Ghostly Guardian!
 
Please watch the Main Event first so you understand everything, then you may continue with the next video that reveals all the clues to solve the Studying Spirits quiz!

To summon the spirits in the séance led by the Webmistress via the Spirit Materializer built by Miss Hermione G. Wells, the party guests needed to identify the ghosts haunting the castle by using anything they could find, including family portraits, two “ancient” illuminated manuscript books, and some other clues…even the Tasty Tombstone cookies! Here are all the ways you could find the true names of each of the seven spirits…

Check out these detailed posts on Britta Blvd for more, including behind-the-scenes details!
