Here are a few of the Halloween goodies my daughters made last weekend for their friends. I didn't have to lift a finger! I did have to wash a few dishes they left behind though. But that's ok, they had a great time with their friends.
There's no secret recipe for these goodies. Just some boxed cake mix and cream cheese frosting. I offered to buy the canned frosting too, but that was pushing their limits. lol! They vehemently said "NO WAY!" they think the frosting in tubs that you buy at the store is too sweet.
So, they made their own cream cheese frosting: two bars of cream cheese, one stick of butter and just enough confectioner's sugar to suit your sweet tooth.
The great thing about making the cream cheese frosting is, they could then color batches of it with different colors to get the desired result. They also used some of those cookie decorating gels that come in small tubes. That's how they got the pretty spider web design. Cute, huh?
