Just as setting out milk and cookies will appease a jolly elf, these gingerbread critters are sure to tame ornery beasts. Lemony royal icing cloaks the cookies with spider web and bat disguises. Use extra icing to give the bats staring eyes and to make chubby spiders.
Baked Rigatoni Cake. Butter a 9-inch springform pan. Toss pasta with Parmesan cheese. Tightly pack pasta into pan, standing each piece on end.
How cute are these?!?!? And easy to make! Too bad my kids can't take homemade treats to school! Might work for the over the hill party next year...hmm...would that be too mean?! Nah!
