how do these grab you?

Mary Jo's niece has graduated from Iowa and threw a "Thriller" themed graduation party, and Mary Jo wondered if i could make 8 dozen of something to match.  while i probably could have done full body zombies, 96 dead hands reaching out of the dirt seemed subtler, and certainly quicker.  a little extra powdered sugar made the death-green a little lumpier, lending to a gnarly sinewy claw-like shape, and table sugar over the grey icing made the tombstones extra stoney-textured.  thanks to Mary Jo, and 96 high-5's to the grad!  coming soon, i think flowers.... (pondering....)
