Mum's the word....

Long ago on a very dark and stormy night, in an old and dusty kitchen, the Mad Franklyn Baker was busy mixing up all kinds of concoctions, day and night.  Odors of all sorts penetrated the air. A green vapor glow could be seen miles away through the cloudy windows in that tall house on the hill.  All of a sudden, a thundering bang violently erupted from within the house!  Then, seconds later an unnatural shout of joy rang out from the Mad Franklyn Baker, who then emerged with the greatest creation ever; little mummy mini cakes!
  




You and your little ghouls can now make the Mad Franklyn Baker creation.




The following is what you will need:

Devil's food Cake Mix (no shame in a box mix; your not the Mad Franklyn Baker)
Wilton Mummies
Spooky/festive Halloween Sprinkles
Mini Cake pans and cup cake paper liners
Electric Green/Monster Green food coloring
Butter cream frosting (the Mad Franklyn Baker says you can use a can)




A cookie scoop is helpful in filling your mini cup cakes.  





Following your cake mix box directions, and once cooled frost with butter cream frosting, add mummies and sprinkles.  Enjoy eating your creations!!






Wishing you and your little ghouls, a very spooky night.

Heirloom Confections - Sponge Candy

With Michigan getting hit with it's first major storm of the year, I thought it was a great time for some heirloom confections.  Yes, Sponge candy also known as Honeycomb candy, whichever name your family recipe was handed down by.  This is a sweet, crunchy, honeycomb-texture treat withhints of delicate toffee and molasses flavor. You can leave it plan or dress it up with chocolate which is what  my niece and I did for a Valentines day treat.  

You can find many recipes online or in your heirloom recipe books.  They only vary by dark or light corn syrup and white or dark brown sugar.  If you use the dark corn syrup or sugar you get a deeper toffee/molasses flavor. Whatever you choose this confection only has four ingredients and is super easy.

1 cup (white or brown) sugar 1 cup (light or dark) corn syrup 1 tablespoon Distilled white vinegar       1 tablespoon baking soda (Sifted)

Bunny Tail Treats

Since the first day of March I've had my nose pressed to the window looking for signs of spring. Alas, it's Michigan; we've had three days of snow.  Finally, my patience paid off.  I'm happy to report that our spring flowers are poking out of the ground with a few blooming in the sunshine now.  Our neighborhood wildlife is on the move and visiting our yard.  Among them are a few bunny families, which inspired me for these Bunny Tail Treats for Easter.
