Here are some treats we made...
Rice Krispy squares with orange food colouring added to the marshmallow/butter mix.
These were Mister's birthday cupcakes. I didn't want to add a bunch of food colouring to the icing (many kids are sensitive to food colouring nowadays)... so I dipped them in coloured sugar. I first looked everywhere for coloured sugar. Could not find any in orange. Living in a small town requires you to get creative... So I bought professional grade food colouring and dyed the sugar! It surprising worked well! Just add sugar to a ziplock bag and spread some colouring gel on the inside of the bag and then massage it all in. Takes a little while... but so worth it!!
The cupcakes were pumpkin as requested from Mister. And let me tell you, they were most delicious pumpkin cake/cupcake recipe I have ever had!!! Yummo! You must try it! - Recipe is here... So light and fluffy. Since I have all the spices now, I'm going to make a cake this week. Amazingly enough - the kids also loved this recipe!!
This is a brain center piece I carved from a watermelon. Just peel it... and carve it up!

The moth wings, I photo copied out of a magazine and then attached with white eyelash glue. The clear glue does not work - ever. Don't waste your money.

I'm not sure what the hubby is... I saw the mustache and had to buy it. We thought initially a used car salesman, but he also reminded me of Tom Selleck. Ha!
