Monster Cake and my LOVE of Church Festival Cake Walks!

So this past weekend our church
held their annual 

OF COURSE I volunteered for 

My job was PERFECT, I controlled the MUSIC.


I was responsible for turning 
on and off the TUNES as people
trotted around the circle of numbers 
hoping to win the coveted CAKE prize!

Ooooonnnnnnnnn.  Off


Sometimes, I even got to PICK the 

Knowing that I was volunteering for the
CAKE WALK, I felt compelled to make a 
COOL CAKE for everyone to fight over.

And cupcakes...more on those a different day.

I wanted to do something fun for the kids, kinda
thinking Halloween but not toooo Halloween-ie ya know?

So I made this fun Monster Cake 
I found on PINTEREST originally made by Makoodle.

I used  covered MARSHMALLOWS for the eyes to save time, not cakeballs like the original cake from Makdoodle.

I have to say THANK GOLLY
for PINTEREST, especially when
I am short on my creative JUICE flow.

Please visit Makoodle for the EASY how-to
and tell her I sent you!

I love this, it's so cute and I love the marshmallows on top. My kids would love these as they aren't huge fans of cake pops ( I see a treat day treat!)

This made me remember the yearly "carnival" over at Milliken Park, with the cake walks on the "stage" in the gym; remember those? Great post, per usual.

I want to be in the cakewalk and win your cake! DARLING!

lisa said...

Trish, you have embraced the wilton grass tip! This cake is so much fun - I can only imagine how badly all the young and young at heart wanted to win it. I also very fondly remember the cake walks of my youth at the fall festival. Thanks for the eye candy and wonderful memory!

Hi Trisha
What a deliciously scary cake! I'll bet there were many vying for your Halloween creation.

Mimi said...

What a fun cake. I know the monsters at my house would love it.

Natasha in Oz said...

This cake looks fantastic! I might try to make that for a Halloween party we are having at our church.

I hear you re Pinterest too! If you have time I would love it if you could pop by and check out my new Pinterest Party. I would be honoured if you would join in and link up this Pinterest inspired post!

Best wishes for a wonderful week,

Oh, my, cake walks take me back to elementary school. I loved those, and I REALLY love your monster cake! (By the way, my Trisha-inspired tea sandwiches this week were yummy. The pecan butter was just as easy to make as you described it. Yum!)
