Wilbur's 10th Birthday pARTy: The Treats

I made two treats for the pARTy.

First, I divided two containers of
white frosting into seven serving containers.
I tinted each a different color
using Wilton's icing colorant.

Next, I cut the contents of one package of
chocolate Twizzlers in half.
Then I cut each piece in half,
stopping about 1/3 of the way up the length.
I finished each "paint brush"
by cutting each half in half.

Then I dipped each brush in a single color of frosting
and arranged them on a serving tray.

For his cake,
I mixed two batches of cake mix
and baked each in a 9 x 11" pan.

After the individual cakes cooled,
I trimmed the sides to make straight edges
and flipped the two cakes onto the serving tray
I cut the curves into the cake with a serated knife
and used a biscuit cutter to make the "thumb hole".
I frosted with white frosting and
used a large spoon to swirl
the colored frosting in
one dollop at a time.

A Happy Birthday Boy!

Oh my goodness--lovin' the paintbrushes! What a great idea. I think I'm going to make these for the treats for our last art class next week!

I love how bright the colors are, and the brushes are very fun and creative!
