Ever since I took that cake decorating course this summer I've been thinking about making mummies for Halloween. I finally got my chance yesterday!
I started with this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Muffins from AllRecipes.com (I get a lot of recipes from that site!).
They baked up nicely.
Next I made the cinnamon cream cheese frosting and mixed up some colors.
(yes, my oven is that small)
The first step was the face. I didn't think my mummies would look as good if you saw a delicious pumpkin color under their bandages. I tried to make black, but it came out more like an army green.
Next I piped on the bandages.
This step took some time, but it was fun.
I made a spooky day-glo green color for the eyes.
Here are my finished mummies! The lighting in my kitchen is pretty bad, sorry. I think you get the idea anyway. Pretty cute little guys, no?
This morning Nick took the mummies to work. Bye bye yummy mummies!!
Are you making any special treats for Halloween?
