Oops, I forgot!

I am such a dork! I forgot to participate in dear Sharon's fun Halloween Blog Party. I just remembered when I went to her super cute site and saw all the fun things that she has done! Run over to her blog Fibberdoodles and Whimsy and check out all the fun stuff.

So here is my little Halloween post.
This is a fun cake that we made last Halloween. It is a scary Frankenstein cake and the kids LOVED it! It was super cinchy to make too. The best part is that it was really yummy.
It got the idea and recipe from one of those cute little cookbooks that are at the check stand. It was full of fun and spooky treats. I think I need to dust it off for this year and get busy.

Frankenstein Cake

1 boxed cake mix

1 can white frosting

1 can chocolate frosting

Green Food Coloring

2 tootsie roll midges

1 peanut butter cup

2 red gumdrop slices

1 orange gumdrop slice

1 large marshmallow

4 Candy Corns

Prepare cake mix according to package directions, baking in a 9X13 pan. Cool cake. Mix green food coloring into white frosting. Mix and spread on cake for the skin color. In a pastry bag (or cut a hole in the corner of a Ziploc) and pipe on the hair, scars, and chin. Cut marshmallow in half and put on 1/2 of one red gumdrop for the eyes. Smoosh the remaining red and orange gumdrop slice for the nose and mouth. Use frosting to make the candy corn stick to the mouth. Slice the peanut butter cup and place the midge and peanut butter cup for the bolts on the neck. Slice and enjoy a bite of monster.

This is our favorite Halloween movie. We watch it every year together. We just love those crazy witches. It is already in our Netflix box for this year.

This is my very goofy Aunt and Uncle who dressed up last year as Shrek & Fiona. Aren't they hilarious! What good sports they are. The really funny part is that they are school bus drivers for their little school! Can you imagine the kids delight when the school bus doors open and Shrek or Fiona is sitting there driving! Love it!

Hope you enjoyed my short little Halloween party post. Happy Halloween and don't eat too much candy!

The cake is cute! I just added Hocus Pocus to my Netflix que. I've never heard of this one and it doesn't look like it'll be too scary. I have to say though, the picture of Shrek is awesome - I bet they had so much fun dressing up! How funny!
