|You gotta have bats and skeletons and tombstones and ghosts. A bowl helps too.|
I have such steep competition that I almost threw up my skeletons and said, “Forget it!” But I can’t quit without a try, so here’s my Creepy Cake N Bake entry,
R.I.P ✟ W.I.P.
Creepy Step 1: Gather all your gear.
Creepy Step 2: Put on your best witch hat and if you have creepy fingers, put those on too. Then take out Betty. She’s perfected the German Chocolate Cake, so why try to outdo perfection, especially when it’s late and you needs some cake . . . fast?
Creepy Step 3: Dump the contents into a mixing bowl, add two eggs, 2/3 C. of oil, 1 1/3 C. water and beat the heck out of the batter for a couple of minutes.
Creepy (and most risky) Step 5: Taste, using long green finger. Yum!
Creepy Step 6: Bake with small chunk of brimstone (about 350 hellish degrees) for 45 minutes. When cool, frost with devilishly creamy chocolate. Frosting must include Vampyre bats and Ghostly peeps melted slowly and painfully in cauldron (not pictured here.) And Viola! R.I.P ✝ W.I.P is complete. Want to see the results? BEWARE. It’s CREEPY!

Query Hell – Perfect! I love it.
MG Higgins says
Fantastic, Lee!!!! Super creative, creepy, writing related, and funny! Good job. You get my vote.
P.S. Were you wearing the hat the whole time?!? Bonus points!
YA Bibliophile says

Nas Dean says
Great job, love it!
C. Lee McKenzie says
Ah, yes. The old I-House days. Remember them well. What ever happened to Muffy? :0
Mary PB says
It's not Halloween without C Lee in her witch's hat. I think some smoke from dry ice would have enhanced the pictures … and have brought back memories from parties at the International House!
Jemi Fraser says
Awesome! I'm craving chocolate cake now… 🙂
😀 Love the fingers! Gotta come back to see the finished product though 'cause my darned iPad won't let me view the video.
Jennifer R. Hubbard says
Creepy AND chocolatey!
Are those skeletons glowing?
I love it! I think I prefer your chocolate frosting coated Query Hell to the real one. 🙂
C. Lee McKenzie says
Thanks all, and yes, Catherine, I am a bit warped. Hey, I'm a writer. You know what happens to them!
Catherine Stine says
Love your warped humor, and I'm sure the cooking was helped along by you wearing a special witch hat. WIP, very funnnnnnny.
How could a writer not love this? Great job!
knew you and Jim were crazy and weird around Halloween :- Love and tell Travis he captured the weird really well.
Natalie Zaman says
LOL! Love this! Though I like to dismember my WIP's and bury them in unmarked graves! >:)
Kelly Polark says
This is awesome! I love Halloween!
I love all the photos leading up to the final creation! And Query Hell is so appropriate!!
