Make a mummy cake for Halloween
Last year at the Cub Scout Blue and Gold banquet, the theme for the cake contest was monsters. One of the boys decided to do a mummy cake. So, we made a big sheet in yellow, trimmed around to make a mummy shape. We put it on a full chocolate sheet and then used some of the remaining pieces to shape a coffin around him. My son used a frosting knife to add the appearance of bandages. Then for some reason he wanted to trim it all out with whipped cream...which was soon oozing all over the place. But, all in all, not bad for a first grader. It was his idea and he did much of the work himself. And...it makes a perfect cake for this time of year. Happy Halloween!
