Thanks you two, I appreshatates de compliments.

Hopefully I will find someone to give it to. Should I even have one slice the whole thing will be gone by the next day. I have no will power .

With further thoughts, should I do this again for whatever reason, I would make the pastry a day ahead. I really don't perform well in the kitchen under pressure!

This would look great on a casserole. Chicken a la King (as a casserole). Tuna Casserole.

Was the pie still warm? If so it may be the steam from the pie that collapsed it. Maybe try letting the pie cool completely before adding the head. Even with the collapse though it looks really good.

You misunderstood, I baked the first head on the pie. The second head I baked alone.

Yes, the steam certainly helped with the collapse but it was already on it's way down before I got it in the oven.

More thoughts:
was thinking I could reinforce the tentacles that broke (short ones attached to the head) with an idea from Chef Michael Smith. He used spaghetti to spear & attach some bacon to meat. I could use a piece under or thru the tentacles much like one would use iron rods in cement. They would at least be edible albight (?) crunchy.

Aaaah, so the second head didn't end up on the pie. I thought the second head had collapsed after adding it to the finished pie.
