Kids Halloween Party

Happy Halloween week! This year is different for our family, because my brother in law is getting married on Halloween... so I have two little boys who will be wearing tuxedos instead of trick or treating this year. To make up for missing out on schools parties and trick or treating, I decided to invite some of our new Wharton Vets Club friends over for chili and pumpkin painting! The kids wore costumes and enjoyed some fun Halloween themed food - pretzel bones, spider pizza, brain cake, and pumpkin dip!

Have a great Halloween!

Brain Cake

*recipe found here

- strawberry cake mix, baked on baking sheet
- 1/4 pint Mason jars
- raspberry jam
- frosting dyed grey, 2 drops black and 1 drop pink food coloring
- piping bag with #5 round tip

1. Make strawberry cake on a baking sheet and cut out circles of cake with the Mason jar, once cooled.
2. Place a piece of cake at the bottom of each Mason jar.
3. Place 1 tbsp of raspberry jam on top of the cake.
4. Cover the top of the jam with frosting and line the edges of the jar with the frosting.
5. Place a smaller circle cake in the center of the icing and then top the cake off with frosting.
6. Add a printed label to the top.
