This is NOT the original recipe for a witch cake, which in 1692 during the Salem Witch trials, called for rye meal and urine. That witch cake was baked with the urine of the bewitched victims, then fed to a dog to rid the victims of evil. This is a wicked-witch-and-flying-monkey cake, because that scene in the Wizard of Oz creeped the hell out of me when I was little. (Okay, it STILL creeps me out.)

I haz no kitchen skillz, so this poor cake suffered through several attempts at making flying monkeys. Including the Black-Gel-Icing-Event, the Glittered-Stencil-Event, and the Let’s-Scrape-Everything-Off and-Start-Over-Incident. My daughter suffered through multiple trips to every craft store and grocery store within the county. But she also helped to create the inspirational Witch-and-Monkey Playlist:

“Monkey” George Michael

“Witchy Woman” the Eagles

“Season of the Witch” Donovan

“Code Monkey” Jonathan Coulton

“Pentagram” Cake

“Waking the Witch” Kate Bush
