For a great Halloween Purple mix equal amounts of Americolor Regal Purple and Electric Purple. This makes a striking and vibrant deep grape purple like the bat cookie in your picture! Good luck!
Thanks VGCEA! I am excited. We went house hunting last week and found a home in Kingwood!! Love the neighborhood!! My husband will be working at the George Bush Airport, so Kingwood keeps his commute short!. We have never lived in a big city!
Thanks all for your comments and help and support. I love the idea of individually pricing each item and adding it to a base cake price. I used this formula on a recent cake order. I drew up progressively more detailed cake ideas with the last, most intricate ideas being presented last. The customer fell in love with the last drawing and was willing to pay for all the extras!

I have seen a hexagon shaped floor tile that would work great if you can find it. I have seen it at Hobby Lobby before.  The sheets come in large 14" x 18" pieces! They are recessed on one side and raised on the other. So you have 2 choices! They work great. Good luck!
Thanks
