Thinking back to the St. Charles County Fairs of my youth, I ate a lot of “Hostess food” on a stick –Ding Dongs, Suzie Q’s and all the likes. They were often deep fried and rarely finished because…well, they just weren’t that pretty. Even as an adolescent, I knew I needed my food to be pretty. So fast forward a few decades and I give you “Pretty Hostess Food”! This time, instead of a deep fried, they were decorated with frosting and SPRINKLES!
What you need:
Gas station snacks (honestly, David shopped at the gas station for the snacks)
Buttercream frosting (I colored mine with food coloring)
11-inch lollipop sticks (you can decorate them with colored tape for extra crazy)
What to do:
1. Thread a snack (or multiple snacks) onto a lollipop stick. Frost an area with frosting and dip the frosted area into sprinkles!
Here are a few of my favorites!
1. The Cinnamon Roll
2. The Zebra Cake (on this one, I used a thin layer of white frosting between the swirls and sprinkled each area with a different color! So fun!)
