Last Friday was a Halloween Carnival at my kids' school. I had to bake a couple of somethings for a cake walk and so I scoured Pinterest for ideas. I ended up making this:
Cupcakes with Homemade Buttercream Icing
|Found this at Nothing But Country|
Brownies with Buttercream Frosting Brains
|Just brownies and buttercream "brains"|
which is a take-off of this:
|Found this on Living Locurto|
For me, this was a multi-day project. My first hurdle was finding the cups and lids.
I finally found the cups and lids at one (of the five near me) Sam's Club. Even though I didn't want the domed lids, I had to take anything I could find and make it work.
Then of course, there was lots of baking, frosting making, decorating, and paper cutting to do. But the hardest part was keeping the spoons stuck on the cups. Not sure what I was doing wrong. I used glue dots and curling ribbon. For a day and a half all I did was reaffix ribbon and spoons. So even though I have 450 domed lids left over, I will not make these again until I can figure out something better for the spoons.
All the goodies ready to go to school! 3,000 glue dots later!
