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. 


Christmas treat for your table.

Lets see just what we can create with this group of goodies.








Wishing you Joy and Peace at Christmas and throughout the New Year.   A time to treasure your family and friends you hold dear. 

Leave me a note if you'd like a step by step how to, to build these snowmen and women.
