My daughters are truly amazing young women. They were invited to a Harvest festival today at their school . It should be lots of fun with games, a bouncy house, cider pressing and a cake walk.
But they have the last soccer game of the season at 4pm. So they won't be going.
But we were asked to donate gluten-free goodies for the cake walk since there are a bunch of gluten-free children at the school.
So Thursday we made these using a Bob's Red Mill Chocolate cake mix. I whipped up a batch of my favorite frosting.
Best of all we were sent some Necco wafers to sample that were perfect for the decorating. Did you know that Necco wafers are made in the USA with no artificial colors or flavors. I loved them as a child and still like them now. This was my twins first try and they adore them. I had to hide the bag.
I am hoping to use them to create Turkey tails for Thanksgiving.
We used them for eyes, noses, bases of the spiders and the tombstones. See that orange cupcake on the bottom 2nd in on the right. It is a graveyard with RIP on each tombstone.
I apologize for the photos, somehow my camera's macro feature has been disabled. Now to find the book to fix it.
And my frosting recipe in case you need to make some too.
