    From Pillsbury website

    Recipe #385041

    Several years ago, when I was managing a state park resort, I maintained a standing complaint against a particular head chef who insisted on serving INSTANT MASHED POTATOES to the guests in my beautiful main dining room. I bugged him about it daily and he would always say that he "doctored them up" and no one could tell the difference... but I COULD tell the difference. Long story short, my birthday rolled around and all the waitresses and kitchen staff surprised me that afternoon with a beautiful birthday cake when I showed up for lunch. The aggrieved chef joyfully served me the first piece and I took a big bite ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT IT WAS PURE INSTANT MASHED POTATOES MADE ONLY WITH WATER AND FOOD COLORING!!! YUK!!! So, the moral is, "Never cross the chef." You put this thing together pretty much like a regular birthday cake, piping on the colored "icing" (food colored mixed potatoes. You can even make the inside yellow (more food coloring) if you wish. And please..... rate me on the "effectiveness of the (unpleasant) surprise" -- not the flavor, folks. And, yes, there are people who really do deserve a cake like this, such as myself! Oh, yes, I almost forgot.... there are about 20 servings but I assure you that only one of those servings will get tasted.

    A fun treat, these cookies look just like miniature hamburgers! :) I've seen several varieties of this recipe- this is my quick and easy version. You could get more creative with other colors of frosting for ketchup, mustard, cheese, etc.

    Recipe #160094

    That's right folks, the Jimmy Buffett fan in me is sharing a "Buffett-inspired" recipe to get into the "swing of things" and gear up for tailgating season. Also lots of fun for kids' snacks or barbecues. I saw this in a little shop in Estes Park, CO and tried out some things to make a "copy" when I got home.

    These cookies are the cutest ones I have ever seen and fun to make. Shaped like miniature hotdogs. 1 hour of prep times is chill time.

    This is a real Halloween party pleaser for the 6-10 year old crowd.

    Recipe #74300

    This recipe is from Martha Stewart, so not only do they look cool but they also have fantastic flavor--not too dry or hard. Even though they are soft inside, they aren't too, too fragile.

    Recipe #135850

    Another gimicky and gross kids' snack food.
