Be A Clown Party

Clown Cupcakes

Bright paper streamers from the ceiling make a circus tent table; a loaded camera will inspire your clowns to do their funniest, wildest tricks!

Bake any flavor of our layer cake mixes in paper baking cups as directed on the package. Cut cone-shaped piece for hat from top of each cupcake; set aside.

Just before serving, top each cupcake with a scoop of ice cream. Use red cinnamon candies, peanut halves, pieces of gumdrops, candy wafers, jelly beans and silver dragees to make clown faces on ice-cream balls. Top each with reserved piece of cupcake for a hat.

Serve with Sloppy Joes.

Sloppy Joes

6 hamburger buns, split and buttered
1 pound ground beef
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 325°. Wrap hamburger buns in aluminium foil; heat in oven 15 minutes. In medium skillet, cook and stir meat until brown. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer over low heat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon into warm buns. 6 servings.

    I love how the clown cupcakes have angry faces. That’s a little odd but so funny. I found your blog on foodpress – what a great idea. I think my great-aunt had some of these recipe cards at one point – I should have snagged them 🙂
