Draw the design as shown on the marshmallow. Skewer with a lollipop stick if you like. To draw a monster, 1. Use black to draw circles for eyes and lines to connect them to the bodies (choose one, two or three eyes). 2. Add dots in the eyes. 3. Use black to outline the body (choose a circle, rectangle or fuzzy circle) and two lines for a neck. 4. Draw a semicircle for a mouth and fill with black. 5. Let the black dry about fifteen minutes and fill in the body with orange, pink or green.

DAY TWO: How to draw ZOMBIE HAND Halloween marshmallows.

 I feel as though I’d be well-equipped to face the zombie apocalypse.  I watch The Walking Dead, so I know what to do.

 

You will need:*

marshmallows
black, 2 shades of green, brown edible writers
lollipop sticks (optional)

*Find sticks in the craft store. For edible writer resources, click HERE. Or, see below. I like the Wilton shade of lime green for the zombie, but if you can only find one shade of green, that’s fine too.

giveaway_CookiesParty_cover

Even though this cookbook is brand spanking new, it brings me back many years. Because that is how long I’ve known and admired and adored Bridget Edwards of Bake at 350. She is clever cookie perfection. And so is her latest book, Decorating Cookies PARTY, published by Lark Crafts.

If you want to seriously impress at your next shindig…   Decorating Cookies Party opens with all the cookie decorating basics you need and includes five cookie recipes (including pink lemonade and gluten-free chocolate! those need an exclamation point), as well as a bonus bit on hosting a cookie decorating party. Ten themed party ideas and 50 different cookie designs fill the pages. You’ve got birthday party, book club, garden party, monster mash-up, outer space, princess, tailgate, under the sea, and baby.

Here’s a little peek inside at a birthday party. They are simple but clever,  and easy to recreate with Bridget’s guidance. And you can mix up the colors and numbers for anyone’s birthday. Each of the party themes is just as versatile.
