I’m not even going to lie to you, I totally have girl crush on Steph from Raspberri Cupcakes. Basically we could be best friends forever and ever and weigh 700 pounds together from her delicious recipes and I would consider it a dream. Am I rambling? I just really love this blog that much! I mean, seriously, how cute are these holiday recipes?
If you’re missing the glitter and rainbows of my regular posts, don’t fret, they’ll be back next week! For now, I’m going to teach you how to safely use dry ice to create a fog effect in drinks for my last Halloween trick.
There are two main points to remember about dry ice: always buy the food grade dry ice, and secondly, never ever touch it!*
As long as you don’t come into direct contact with it, and are using the food safe version, then you can use it in drinks, punch, as fog machines, the list goes on. The warmer the liquid that you’re dropping the ice into, the more fog that you’ll get.
Bust up the dry ice block by lightly dropping the bag on hard ground a few times, and using small chunks for each jar. Keep the remaining dry ice in a small cooler, and replenish the ice as the fog dies down.
And for those of you wondering how to make the colorful scientific flask, just fill it with mineral oil and sprinkles. I covered the top with press and seal paper and ribbon so no one would try and drink it!
*Sugar & Cloth is in no way encouraging the misuse of dry ice. Though dry ice can be safe when used & handled properly, you are using it at your own risk.
October is pretty much the one month out of the year where it’s socially acceptable to eat the craziest concoctions of sugar ever invented. Aside from the fact that the other 11 months of the year don’t really stop me from sugar concoctions, I’m still happy to present my two cents with this monster guts recipe.
- 1 container of cool whip
- Crushed oreos
- Green food coloring
- Gummi slugs (I blame Shrek for my thinking slugs are appropriate for this)
- Bone sprinkles
- Gel icing
Get your beakers ready my friends, because this week I’m going to share all of the crazy DIY’s and gooey recipes from my mad scientist halloween party. It’s just creepy enough for October, but not so creepy that you’re afraid to the eat anything from the chip table, if you know what I mean.. okay, okay, one more peek–
You know me well enough by now to know that I’m sold on anything named fairy bread. Admittedly, the name can however scare off husbands and teenagers, and by scare off I mean they may suffer a little hazing if they unpack fairy bread from their lunch. Every one else will love it though, including you since this is the easiest sandwhich ever.
The traditional fairy bread recipe uses just butter and sprinkles, and as much as I love butter, I opt to make an actual sandwich with my sprinkles. To make my version, cut off the crust and the use a cookie cutter to get the shape you want. Then spread either peanut butter or nutella (with a dash of honey), and dust it with sprinkles. All done!
Don’t you think this is such a cute way to surprise someone? You could even use them as finger foods for a party!
