Looking for some yummy treats for a monster party, or kids Halloween party? I'm over at Multiples and More showing your kids how to make Monster Marshmallow Pops. They'll have a lot of fun making these cute little guys.
UPDATE: This giveaway has ended and the two winners Megan and Kathy have been notified.
I think my friends at Klutz knew about my little obsession with adorable monsters when they asked me if I'd like a copy of Pom-Pom Monster Salon.
Aren't they just as cute as can be. And super easy to make too.
Also, check out this video for an even better look at how to make them (it's only 47 seconds long).
Honestly, I don't know who is more excited about this kit, the kids or me. Sure they love their little monsters and cannot wait to make more, but I can finally throw away the cardboard circles I cut out years ago that I've used over and over to make pom-poms. Now I have a fun pom-pom maker ... I mean the kids have a fun pom-pom maker. Being a knitter I have baskets and bags full of yarn, we could curl up on the couch in front of the fire and make pom-poms all winter long. We can decorate gifts and attach them to scarves and hats.
And guess what, I'm giving two of these Pom-Pom Monster Salon kits away, and if you are looking for the perfect gift for the holidays I have a coupon code too.
With Pom-Pom Monster Salon, anyone can make pom-poms and turn them into stylish monsters. Use our exclusive pom-pom maker and follow our cutting and styling instructions to create perfectly coifed mop tops, afros, pigtails, and mohawks to name a few. Add tiny hair bows, punch-out feet, and foam horns and teeth for the final touches.

I have quite a thing for adorable monsters this Halloween.
I made these two cakes for the bake sale and cake walk at the twins Halloween school carnival. I made cake pops too and will share those shortly.
These cakes are very simple. Anyone can make them, as long as you have patience and a DVR'd program (or two) to watch.
Instructions to make one of these fun monster cakes:
Bake 2 6x2" round cakes (or any size you want if you want larger cakes) - I made chocolate fudge cakes.
Once cooled, put icing in between them and stack them on top of each other.
Cover the entire cake with icing, it doesn't matter if you get crumbs in the icing because it will be covered up by the 'fur' anyway.
Using black and white fondant, cut out the eyes and mouth and put them straight onto the icing. Tip: if you mix just a teeny bit of fondant with water, it will make a 'glue' to attach the pupil to the white of the eye.
Mix some Wilton dye into plain white icing to make the color of your choice for your monster. Then using the multi-opening decorating tip pipe 'fur' onto your monsters.
