Cupcake Ghosts in a Can
Trying out different treats for a little ones birthday party for the weekend, can be quite the experience. I learned what "caster" sugar is and "icing" sugar as well. I'm sure that will come in handy when I go to make banana bread again. Perhaps someday, that knowledge might even save a life.
Yeah, alright. That knowledge saving a life, might be a bit far-fetched. But, you never know! Unfortunately, though the cupcakes were tasty, they weren't something to write home about and while they were cute, I don't think a bunch of 6 yr olds are really going to care as they cram them in their mouths. So, considering all the pain and suffering, plus the mind melt that was involved in making these cute guys, I think I'll stick to a store bought cake this year and just plop that out for the kids.
What about you? Would you go all Betty Crocker/Marth Stewart on them and whip up these guys or would you be alright with doing the store thing? Have you thrown a fabulous party for a 6 year old that you can share with us?
