Here's the completed ensemble.
Mummy cupcakes. I couldn't resist these when I saw them on the Better Homes & Gardens website. I baked the cupcakes yesterday and put them together today. That's a marshmallow with a couple of slits cut into it, then stuffed with some mini M&Ms. I dusted the top of the cupcake with white sanding sugar. Easy peasy, spooky-ish and fun.
Ghost Cake Pops from Bakerella's book Cake Pops that I picked up a week or so ago. I love it, and am happy I splurged a little on it. The girls have been poring over the super cute pops and Jessica practically begged me to make these. Today was the day for creating them (there are 36 pops altogether-I ran out of candy coating for the remaining 8 or so),. This is my second attempt at cake pops (I made my first batch over a year ago for Jessica's Daisy meeting) and it went much more smoothly thanks to the tips provided in the book. Not a single Cake Pop slid off the stick this time. Whoohoooo!
The faces were made with edible markers. Cool, huh? They aren't hard to make, but it does take time and a bit of patience.
Yesterday I made these chocolate pretzel rods. Not perfectly, as some excess chocolate went over the edge of the mold, but still fun.
I ran out of baggies for them, so took this pic so you could better see the shapes that were in the mold.
And just to keep it real, this is what my sink looks like at the moment.
Guess I'd better get off my tush and clean it up, huh?
Thanks for stopping by!
Hopefully I can get some good photos at the party this evening.
