New to me this week on Pinterest

Have you discovered Pinterest? It is a wealth of information and inspiration. Here are a few of the photos that peaked my interest this week.

I decided to give the Halloween Rice Krispie Surprise cake a try. I make a treat for our grandkids that live nearby, so this was a perfect time to try this "cake". 

It took 2 1/2 times the amount of the usual recipe of Rice Krispie Treats to make the pumpkin and then build the cake around it.

I used 2-8"x2" buttered cake pans and then filled in the middle.

Ready to cool before frosting

I used a yummy dark chocolate frosting

And here's my version of the surprise.

The kids were excited

 Eden had to put on her tiara before she would let Papa take her photo tasting the treat.

 A thumbs up from Makenzie lets me know I did good!

 Happy Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by,

The photo of the orange wood took my breath away. Fantastic!

What isnt to love about a rice crispy cake with a hidden pumpkin inside all smothered in a layer of chocolate icing? I'm with the kids. Pass me a plate, my fork is ready.

Lol, it's made out of cereal, so can we have leftovers for breakfast?

Ooh, 10/10 for grandma on that cake. I might have gone a leeetle overborad pinning things over the weekend - I'll blame it on the fact that I wasn't feeling well ;o)

I love Pinterest! I could spend hours just wandering around in there.

Your cake turned out awesome! Kudos on actually trying something from there, unlike me who has pages and pages of "recipes to try", etc. Lol!

Oh my goodness, you have the most darling grandkids! And your cake turned out perfect. I love/hate pinterest! I literally decide what's for dinner every single day by looking at Pinterest. Then, I just HAVE to throw in some yummy dessert too (that's the hate part ;-)

I'm so impressed! You actually made something you pinned! I have yet to do that, but I'm optimistic.

Such a cool cake! I'm glad the grandkids liked it!
