Our party was a pot luck Halloween inspired party. It was a lot of fun and I admit less stressful! Okay, only slightly less stressful because I was so busy all week that I was still getting things ready when the kids started coming. Anyway, here are the things I made from pintrest along with the suggestions from pintrest others brought.
I don't have an extensive amount of space in my apartment, so I took my kitchen island (it's always against the wall and next to a counter) and covered both of them with a tablecloth.
I baked it at a lower temperature (325) for about 15 minutes. It came out a nice golden brown. When it cooled I iced the cookie. I did not have any green icing, but I did have green food spray. I added orange colored sprinkles to the rim.
I started the cupcake cake by baking 14 vegan chocolate cupcakes. While they were cooling I took a cookie sheet and covered it in paper to make it look nice. When they were cooled I arranged the cupcakes on the tray (they kind of looked like a snow flake). I took the orange icing and smoothed it all over the top. Now this is where I strayed from the original. I took a Betty Crocker pre-made icing tube in black and made the web. They made black rings and ran a tooth pick through it.
I'm now reminding people who don't visit often of two things: I don't always get the pins right because I don't have these objects on hand and 2) I do them from memory sometimes. So, I made the green vanilla pudding yesterday morning. I set it into the green cups I had (it would have looked cooler if I had had clear) and after they set awhile added chocolate sprinkles to the top. Here is my mistake: I forgot to add faces to the cups BEFORE putting the pudding in so when I went to draw on them with sharpie everything was smearing because of the condensation.
only got the idea from pintrest, I then saw that Target sold both the
cauldron and two punch mixes for $8. All I had to do was add soda. Which
fizzed all over the place when I mixed it (the girls thought that was
hilarious) . Two days before I made the ice hands by freezing water in a
glove. First, the glove didn't want to come off when I was ready to use
it, then it didn't want to fit in the cauldron and I had to break the
fingers. It fit after that.
