This is a four image collage with the photos outlined with black frames. This is a description of the top left photo In the background of this photo are various pumpkins of different sizes and shapes and vases full of flowers of white, orange, and salmon colors. These items are in a soft focus and are slightly blurry. In the foreground of the photo is a white plate that's topped with several hand pies. The cream colored crusts have been glazed with a thin white frosting. At the seams of the hand pies small amounts of the golden maple, pumpkin filling is oozing out. To the right of that is a photo of A pan of twisted dough that resembles intestines. There is red frosting drizzled over the top of the "intestines" to give the appearance of blood. Black plastic spiders have been placed in random spots in the pan. Below that is a picture of donuts. A purple cloth is the backdrop to this photo. A white cutting board sits on the cloth and is topped with three donuts two orange frosted donuts are on the outside and are topped with different colored sprinkles. In the center is a purple frosted donut with black and green sprinkles on top. There are three other bluish purple frosted donuts sitting above the cutting board on the purple cloth. Each of them is covered in a different combination of sprinkles--yellow and black dots, yellow, black, and purple dogs with purple and black sprinkles, and one completely covered in assorted colors of sprinkles. To the right of that is a white mound with a sheet of fondant draping over it with two candy eyes stuck on it to create the appearance of a ghost.
