I made these along with the Pumpkin Cakepops for a Pre-Thanksgiving-Stomach-Stretcher meal at work this week.
Each Scarecrow was made with spice cake and vanilla frosting rolled into a ball then dipped in a mixture of white and brown candy melts to get that flesh tone. I then added the “hats”, which are mini Reeces Peanut Butter Cups, and the “straw”, which is Shredded Mini Wheat Cereal. Next I added the brim of the hat with brown candy melts and piped on the face with black and orange candy melts; then Lifesavers were added to the bottom to act like a “shirt”.
And they were a hit! The only trouble is that people don’t actually want to eat them when they turn out so darned cute 🙂
