On October 21 we attended the annual Harvest Fest at my son’s elementary school!
Along with all of the chaos…err fun… (haunted house, face painting, games, craft & goodie stations) there’s a bake sale!
It’s interesting to see what POPS up in the Upper West Side! Do moms in this career-driven-crazy-busy-section of NYC really have time to bake?
The Jello cups were a hit! I felt bad for the apple teeth — $2 seemed a bit overpriced too.
Are you wondering what that green “thing” is on top of the jack ‘o lantern treats? Me too! We had a kid bite in — to find out. It’s a gummy candy of some sort (sliced into smaller pieces).
and…. I have no idea what this “creepy hand” cupcake with frosting is made from (below left):
These “mouth cookies” (above) looked interesting I think there was strawberry jelly and marshmallows in there!
…hmmmm….a few store bought items. A nice touch though!
There were lots of cake pops and marshmallow pops!
I saw a basket of Trader Joe’s pumpkin shaped cookies… it may have gone untouched for the whole event.
I also saw more versions of a rice crispy treat (with goo and goop) than you can imagine!
So what did I buy? Just a few simple and traditional chocolate chip cookies. (I made sure they were homemade)!
Henry loved them! …so that was this mummy’s favorite pick of the day!
