Astro Weenie Pumpkin

I'd been itching to make one of these ever since I had seen it on Charles Phoenix's site. I finally got my opportunity when we had the Fartwood Cemetery open house on Thursday.
In the Fifties and Sixties, these edible topiaries were all the rage. Most of the time they were done for Christmas and used a conical Styrofoam base to make a Christmas tree shape.
I used a white pumpkin and all sorts of pickled goodies, tomatoes, cheese, and of course.....Lil' Smokies!

That is too weird-looking! *grin* But the little sausages look yummy. :)

MHP--I wish I could have put my hands on some WI sausage.

I would've just ordered you some, but they don't deliver to web addresses ;)

GR--you're the best! I wish it was that easy!
