June 8, 2009

Some fun food ideas to go along with Bug Week!


Butterfly Pancakes


(pancakes & fruit)


Peanut Butter Bumblebees


(Cream together: 1/2 cup peanut butter, 2 Tbsp softened butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar.  Add 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs- about 12 squares.  Shape into ovals.  Make stripes using melted chocolate; wings using sliced almonds.  Store in refrigerator.)


Ants on a Log

(celery sticks, peanut butter, raisins)


Coconut Caterpillar Cake


(Use any boxed cake mix.  Fill a greased 8-oz. custard cup 3/4 full.  Pour remaining batter into a greased 10″ fluted tube pan.  Bake the custard cup at 350 for 20-25 minutes, the tube cake for 40-45 minutes.  Let cool.  Cut the large cake in half, place each piece to form an “S.”  Level the small cake and place at one end for the head.  Tint coconut in plastic bags.  Cover cake with frosting and coconut.)


Spider Web Cake

(use black gel frosting in a spiral, pull gently w/ toothpick)


Oreo Cookie Spiders

(oreo cookies, M&Ms, won-ton noodles)
