    I found a Christmas tree cupcake pan at a local supermarket and decided to make them using the Easy White Cake recipe from the recipe booklet which came with my new (Christmas gift) KitchenAid mixer. They were fun to make and messy to frost. LOL Having more than one pan would definately have speeded things up. I decorated the trees with some star-shaped Christmas candies. I also dropped some of the candies into the batter before baking, which gave some of the cupcakes a color-spotted inside. The round cake bits which resulted from cutting off the cupcake "humps" make nice, bite size, sandwich 'cookies' when put together with extra frosting. Spread the frosting on the flat side of one round and cover with another.

    Recipe #107390

    Here's something fun for the little ones, or the little ones at heart! Prep times are estimate so are cook times. (I use microwave to melt the chocolate chips.

    Recipe #103686

    I found this hysterical creation on the Twinkie website. It was created by chef Clare Crespo, and I think it is rather ingenious.

    Recipe #120476

    My mom made these cookies all the time when I was little, now I like to make them for my kids.

    Recipe #15968

    This is a great cake, perfect for Halloween parties, that is a take-off of the stand-by graveyard pudding. I noticed pudding is less popular than cake, and of course, cake is more suited for parties, especially those with kids. You can use your choice of cake flavor, but pay attention to the cookie crumbs you use in that case so they are compatible flavors. You also probably wouldn't want to use chocolate icing with a pumpkin cake, but if you wanted a pumpkin frosting, that would be good, or else use vanilla.You can use whipped cream to make the ghosties, but be aware that if you do this, the cake needs to remain chilled, and the whipped cream does try to sag and run after awhile (so don't do that too far in advance). The marshmallow ghosties are more durable at room temp. Those are often sold near displays of halloween candy, not necessarily by the bags of marshmallows.

    You won't really find giant snails in the sea, but some extra-large cinnamon snails might find their way into your tummy!

    Recipe #133242

    A good friend of mine made this cake for her daugther's B-day party. It was adorable and delicious. She gave me the recipe and I am posting it for safe keeping.

    Recipe #63845

    These are an easy sugar cookie to make because they require no refrigeration of the dough before rolling it out. Updated 11/2009 - after reading some of the reviews that said the dough was crumbly, I updated the ingredients to state that the unsalted butter should be softened to room temperature. I am hoping that solves the crumbly dough problem. I've never experienced that and I am thinking that is because I soften the butter before mixing. Hope that helps everyone.

    Recipe #82681

    Very rich and buttery cookies from my friend Elisabeth. Just perfect for children, grandchildren and a few left over for us. A number of people have added that they baked the cookies for a longer time. I tried that, and my cookies burned. Then I realized it is because I roll them VERY thin. I measured a baked cookie, and it was 1/16". So, if you roll them thin, pay attention to the time, if they are not quite that thin it will take more time than I stated in the recipe. I also use this recipe for Easter cookies, and have posted some Easter cookie pictures. Today, 4th of July, we made Independance Day cookies. I baked them for 5 minutes. My sister-in-law says what makes them so good is how thin I roll them.

    Recipe #83963

    Get ready for the holidays!! I know a company that sells these for $7 each but I like to include them in holiday baskets. I like to make these for the kids to have cider during the fall and winter holidays as a tradition in our very new household. They are very cute and great as a gift. Tie with a festive ribbon and attached to a bottle of apple juice along with the directions. Also these can be made inexpensively if you purchase your spices from a store selling them in bulk by weight.

    Recipe #137885

    My German friend Anja introduced me to these and they are fantastic. One of the fastest recipes going and very more-ish indeed. The cook time is usually the time needed in the fridge to let them set

    Recipe #50521

    a cute little Thanksgiving decoration that is easy and the kids will love to make. I found it in Womans day and I will be making these this weekend and will post a picture. Can be made up to three days ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Recipe #104493

    This is the cutest thing to make for a St. Patrick's Day potluck. I found this on-line, (can't remember where!), for hubby to take to an office St. Patty's potluck. (For an added "tah-dah", go to a party supply store, and buy a plastic black or green leprechaun's pot to put the gold coins in.)

    Recipe #158856

    For those crafty minded cooks. Use store bought pound cake loaf and cookies to create this very cute cake. Flowers are edible too.

    A fun way to liven up that ever-present kids' food. Great for bad weather days, cranky kids (or moms!), birthday parties, or just because. My daughters think I'm really cool when I make these for them. :o)

    Recipe #78834

    No baking necessary and always a big hit!! My niece made these last year for the holidays and I thought they were adorable. We don't like red hots, so I use mini M&M's. This also allows you to use various colors for the eyes and nose.
