Not Really Carnival Food

For my grandma's birthday party, my sister came up with the idea that we would have a carnival party. I think the carnival theme might have only gone as far as the stuff my sister actually did, but still...

Here's a look at the food from the party:

The Sweet Shoppe (with candy for the kids after they played the Midway games) and the pies

M&M cookies and caramel popcorn

More cookies, pretzel sticks, rice krispie pops, brownie bites and cupcakes

The oh-so-beautiful cake that was technically edible, but trust me, you didn't want to eat this (the cake layers themselves are made out of rice krispies and other cereal mixed with marshmallows, then frosted, then covered in fondant -- maybe twice -- then decorated with paper cutouts).

There was also strawberry shortcake that I didn't get a picture of, but it was the only thing I ate. We ended up with a ton of leftover goodies even though the party was very well attended.

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to link over from my blog because I'm so lazy to post about it myself.
