It is always an issue. Having lots of people over for a party or just a bunch of people eating hot dogs or hamburger and just how to put everything out that someone might need. This is a simple way to put out all the goodies and keep the mess at a minimum and the best part is you probably already have everything you need. We used a 24 cup cupcake pan and spread out all of the ingredients one item per well. Added some plastic spoons and forks where appropriate and you are ready to go. Your next BBQ or cook off or gathering can be an easy display of foods and easy way to clean it all up.
How neat is this? A series of fruits pierced with shish kabob wooden sticks.The body is a pear. Googly eyes were used (just make sure to remove them before someone eats them. The beak and feet are trimmed from fruit roll ups. You could make the eyes out of rice paper with drawn on pupils from a sharpie marker if you have concerns for guests not eating the googly eyes. The fruit used to make the tail can be anything you just have to make sure you are consistent with putting them on so that they all keep the rainbow effect. After you cut the fruit toss in a bowl with water and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Blot to dry. This would be great for a thanksgiving dinner.
One of my all time favorite Stephen King films and I love Pennywise. This is a great layout done with different vegetables to make a portrait of him of sorts. Used is: squash, baby carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, bell peppers, olives, onion and radish. Perfect for a Halloween party. The dip tray is ranch with olives cut into slivers to spell out float. This will be the talk of your guests and is pretty simple to do.
What cool party treats are these. A simple Kit Kat broken down into pieces. Dip 1/3 of one end into mint green candy melts. While still wet attach chocolate candy (you could use a small Reeces Peanut Butter Cup) and add candy eyes. With black licorice add hands, mouth and scar. Yummy and scary at the same time.
Using twenty cupcakes layout a design as close as you can to what the pictures shows. Carefully ice them with white icing giving a final swishing going back and fourth across the whole ghost. Pipe on the eyes and mouth with black icing. If you want to avoid the black icing purple would work just as well. A really cool design for Halloween parties and it does not cost much at all.
If you try this send us a pic and we will include it on this post for all to see.
Dip the top pointed tip and back of a strawberry with melted chocolate. Before chocolate sets add candy eyes and insert yellow M&M’s sideways into strawberry making sure the top part of the nose gets pushed into the melted chocolate. It will make sure the nose stays on. Leave the stem on which becomes the feet and also helps this guy stand up. If you want to remove the stem did the top (feet end) of the strawberry into melted chocolate and push down on wax paper. This will create a flat area for the strawberry to sit without falling over.
