Clever Treats for a Halloween Class PartyPosted by MeckMom on Oct 23, 2008 in Links I Love | 7 comments
Thanks for you patience last week while I prepped for my latest Wanda-style Halloween party. It was a big success. I tried lots of new twists and challenge ideas this year and I can’t wait to tell you all about it next fall.
Speaking of Halloween, if you’re in the market for a sweet treat to send in for your kid’s Halloween party next week, you might want to check out this cool site. I first came across Bakerella a few months ago when I was following links from a ‘photography tips’ site.
I was quickly won over by her adorable collection of cupcake pops. Not only are they clever and fun, but they’re made from a cake mix – which is right up my ‘quick and easy’ alley. I tagged the site but sort of forgot about it until yesterday when I was searching for fun food ideas for elementary school parties. When I caught a glimpse of her awesomely bad Halloween pops, I knew I’d found what I was looking for.
They’re the perfect sweet treat for elementary-age kids…easy to handle, colorful, and a huge step up from the boring orange cupcakes you can pick up at the grocery store. I was able to buy all the supplies I needed to make a big batch at WalMart for under $8. I haven’t put them together yet, but thanks to Bakerella’s detailed instructions, I’m hopeful that I can pull them off.
