Frankie and the Ghost

Being that Halloween is around the corner and all the stores are putting out their stock I was hit with inspiration when I laid my eyes on Frankie. I couldn't even wait for a sale; he was to cute to pass up.  And just who is Frankie, you ask?  Meet Wilton's Frankie! 


And of course, I just had to create something with him. 
I've added a few new pictures. 







Now you know why I just had to run with Frankie and give him a sidekick for the season.

Here's how to do your own Frankie and Ghost snack cakes.


You'll need:

  • Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes (10 cakes per box)
  • Kraft Jet-Puffed Ghost Mallow Marshmallow  
  • Brach's Autumn Mix 
  • Wilton Candy Melts in Vibrant Green (12 oz. bag)
  • Wilton Icing Decoration aka Frankie (12 count) 
  • Wilton Food Writer Pen
  • cookie sheet
  • small Ramekin bowl
  • Parchment or Wax paper 
Take your Food Writer pen and add faces your Ghosts Mallow. Set aside on a cookie sheet-lined with wax or parchment paper - to dry. Melt 1/4 cup of Candy Melts in a small microwave-safe Ramekin bowl, (increments of 20 to 30 seconds) stir until melted. Take your Ghost Mallows / Frankie and dip the very bottoms into your Candy Melts and attach to your Fall Party Cakes. Remember to leave room for a candy pumpkin or two (just dip them into melted Candy Melts). Let stand until the candy melts have hardened, about 5 to 10 minutes.

The sprinkles on the Little Debbie Fall Party cakes remind me of fall leaves. 
I love Wilton's Vibrant Green Candy Melts; they make for a great monster green look.
Wilton also has other Halloween characters to choose from. 


I hope your little Ghosts and Goblins enjoy these snack cakes. 

 I know mine did!!

Mother's day Brunch

For the beginning of May I kept busy with a simple buttercream retirement cake.  I used a butter cream transfer method to create this sweet red motor cycle, camper and camp fire.  Then I  constructed a retirement plaque out of rolled fondant.    Best wishes to the United States Postal Service Person, enjoy your retirement.


On  Mother's Day I did a spring brunch for my mother on Sunday afternoon.  I made this Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, a recipe I found fromMartha Stewart. I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it. It was a very easy and quick recipe to whip up and you can even do it ahead of time for convenience.




As a side for the Quiche,  I made a Non-GMO micro-green salad with julienne cucumbers and strawberries,  drizzled with a pomegranate salad dressing.  These delicate micro-greens needed delicate garnishes and doing a julienne cut to the…

Spring Bazaar Arts and Craft

St. John's held their annual Spring Bazaar on April 8th. 

Bake sale items were to help raise money for a new roof.  I made these cupcakes and a few mini cake's with my new Russian cake tips for the bake sale.






I packaged up, the single cupcakes in ice cream cups and taped a clear cup upside down as a cover.  This made for a great to go cup.  




I made up multi packs of three and four cupcakes in spring colored and bunny boxes.

For the mini cakes I removed the cup cake holder insert and placed the 5" cakes inside.  They fit perfectly. 

After checking in, I found the single-serve cups sold faster than the multi-packs.  A good thought for next bake sale. Be sure to stop by next year to check out the wonderful artists and vendors. 


Summer Harvest Party

It’s been a busy summer so far, but I was able to put in a kitchen garden this year.  



It was just in time to win a Ball Made To Share canning House Party which was sponsored by Newell Brands.
