Kraft Kitchens Tips

Sweets can be part of a special occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Hard silver candies, called "dragees," can be found at most bulk food stores. Remove and discard them from cake, along with the toothpicks, before serving cake.
Frankenstein Cake
Tint 1 cup COOL WHIP with green food coloring; spread onto hands, feet and head pieces. Tint remaining COOL WHIP with blue food coloring; spread onto body. Use brown decorating gel to add facial features and hair. Add Mini OREO Cookies on the side of head and on the shoulders for Frankenstein's electric bolts.
