Hulk Marshmallow treats!

Here are my Incredible Hulk marshmallow treats! They are very easy to make and such a fun treat for anyone who loves marshmallows and chocolate!  What you will need is a bag of marshmallows, a bag of green candy melts, long sticks and a few crushed Oreo cookies. Have all your items ready and handy. Be sure to crush your Oreo cookies ahead of time and place in small bowl. In another bowl melt your candy melts as directed on package. Stick the marshmallows on stick and dip in melted chocolate. Dip top of marshmallow into crushed Oreo cookies and place upside down on wax or parchment paper. Let sit until chocolate has hardened. Continue this process until you make your desired amount of Incredible Hulk marshmallow treats. Once the chocolate has hardened you can flip and place in jar or anywhere you'd like. For the face, I used Sparkle decorating gel by Wilton. I do have to warn you though the faces will stick together and smudge. So if you want to use this make sure the faces do not touch each other. Also do not place in goody bags. The eyes and mouth will stick to bag and your Hulk will be ruined. Perhaps you can try regular black frosting instead of gel. Anyhow, here is what mine looked like. Good luck with yours!

Avengers Cake with Justice league friends

I recently made this cake for my twin boys birthday who love the Avengers! I wanted it to be simple. So, I decided to make Captain America's shield on top. I then followed the Avengers theme on the sides of the cake, by making their symbols all around. I added a few of the Justice league symbols as well because we could not do without the Green Lantern, Superman and the Flash. Of course you can make any symbols you want. I once again used ready made fondant and added food coloring to make the colors I wanted. For the cake itself, you can use your favorite recipe or even a boxed cake. I went with a chocolate cake with a chocolate whipped filling. The boys loved it!
