Mmmmmm Aliens.......






So, this morning I was checking out Pioneer Woman's Food blog and came across her recipe for cake balls. I thought they looked so cool, but didn't really have an excuse to try them.

Fast forward about an hour. I am sitting in a conference room at Emmett's school in a meeting with his therapy team. His teacher leans over to me and asks if I can bring a sweet treat to the Halloween party tomorrow instead of crackers and cheese, as I had planned. Yay!!! I get to make Alien Cake Balls!!!!!

I ran out to the Giant Craft Store and bought the essential supplies. I baked a gruesome looking Red Velvet Cake and then set to work. Grandma Jean helped with the decorating. I hope they go over well with Emmett's classmates!

Oh how wonderfully gruesome. I wish we could still give out homemade Halloween treats.

SICK! I love it! I myself was saddened that this was the first Hallowe'en for years & years that I didn't make Jello brains. Seeing these eyeballs-on-a-stick cheers me up considerably. (o:
