Today's post is sponsored by FOOD. Yesterday, I used waterslide decals for my Iron Craft Challenge and since the paper is a little expensive, I didn't want to waste any of the available space on the decal sheet. I knew that I wanted to do a children's dessert and the first thing that popped into my mind was--dirt pie. And, what goes along with dirt? Bugs.
I decided to do a cute bug and a gross bug. I adhered the decal to the bottom of the custard dishes so that it would be food safe.

I wanted something fun for children and these made my day. Be care of the sharpened point if using a wooden skewer or a toothpick. A pair of kitchen shears would very easily dull either with a straight across cut. These could be used for a miniature puppet show or a miniature shadow puppet show as was explained in the original postings.
Finally, I wanted to do a dessert for the grown ups as well. I have been playing around with this idea for years and finally came up with a recipe that I felt comfortable. These are called Blood Spoons. They are made from plastic spoons that have been covered with white chocolate (that has been dyed with food coloring) and flavored with Grand Marnier. I am not a big fan of white chocolate so I have been developing other flavors. These spoons are designed to be used with your morning coffee. You stir your coffee with the spoon and the chocolate dissolves into the cofee to flavor it.
