C2 WEDNESDAY. APRIL 18. 2001 FOOD THE SALINA JOURNAL Earth / Treats fun to make FROM PAGE CI Earth Day can be an edible theme for the kids and for adults, too. Make a party of it — it's an. appealing time of year to celebrate spring and focus on nature, growing things and the environment. There's no reason why good things to eat cannot help convey a message, with reminders of the good Earth we should all care for The table for a children's party might be set with an Earth Cake. The base cake may be of any kind or flavor, its top decoratively frosted into a colored world map with green continents floating on a blue-ocean background. The cook also can bake favorite cookies cut into leaf shapes, the kids' names traced on with icing, all piled onto a platter to form a Cookie Tree. Then there are mud pies and dirt flowerpots (recipes follow). They are easy to make, fun to eat and will help underline the spirit of the day. Mud pies % cup crushed chocolate wafer cookie crumbs 8 teaspoons butter, melted 1 pint chocolate or rocky-road ice cream, softened 1 jar hot fudge sauce '74 cup chopped walnuts Pretzel sticks In a small bowl, combine chocolate cookie crumbs with melted butter. Divide among 4 small pie molds or round dishes and pat into bottom. Freeze 10 minutes to set crust. Scoop ice cream into prepared crust. Freeze until firm. Top with "rocks" made from nuts, hot fudge and "twigs" made from pretzel sticks. Makes 4 pies. Dirt flowerpots 6-ounce package instant chocolate pudding 3 cups cold milk 1 banana, thinly sliced % cup crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (see note) Four 3-inch terra-cotta flowerpots Gummy worms Meltable candy disks in varied colors, lollipop molds and 6-inch lollipop sticks to make lollipops; or 4 store-bought lollipops Prepare pudding, using 3 cups milk, while following package directions. Cover the hole on the bottom of the flowerpots with m^asking tape. To assemble: Place '/a cup pudding in bottom of each flowerpot, followed by 4 thin slices of banana, 1 tablespoon crushed cookies, cup pudding, finishing with 2 tablespoons crushed cookies. Top each cup with a lollipop "flower" and a "worm" squirming across the "dirt." Makes 4 flowerpots. To make molded loUipop flowers: Melt candy disks (easUy done with disks in a bowl in the microwave); pour melted candy into dry lollipop molds; tap molds gently to remove air bubbles. Lay a stick in each mold and give the stick a half-twist to make sure it is fully covered with candy Refrigerate filled molds imtil bottoms of molds appear frosty or until candy is firm. Remove candy by inverting molds and tapping gently Trim excess coating from molded candy with a sharp knife. Note: To crush cookies, place in resealable plastic bag and crush with rolling pin. Cake / A few tools needed for detailed decorations FROM PAGE 01 Book-End Bears Note: Wilton products, including bear pans, fondant and Wilton cake decorating books (which include cookie dough and buttercream icing recipes), are available at Hobby Lobby and other selected Salina department stores, by calling Wilton's toU- free number at 1-800-794-5866, or through their Web site. 9-by 13-inch Wilton Mini Stand-Up Bear Pan Decorating tips: No. 2, 3,18 Wilton roll-out cookie dough recipe Ready-to-use rolled fondant Buttercream icing Food coloring Cookie books: Prepare roll-out cookie dough. Divide one batch into four equal parts. Tint each part a different color, then divide each color in two. Shape into 3-by 4- inch rectangles and bake. Because cookies are thicker than usual, baking time will be longer than the recipe recommends (ap- prox. 15 minutes total). Cool and write book titles on the four "books" using decorator tip No. 2 and white icing. Bears: Using bear pan, bake two bears, following package directions. Cool. Place each bear on one cookie, using icing on the bottom of the bear to keep it from separating. Decorate bears according to package directions. Pencil and apple: Using rolled fondant, pinch off a small amount that, when rolled into a ball, is about the size of a quarter. Tint with desired color. Roll out to pencil size. For apple, use a very small ball of tinted red fondant. Add a brown stem and green leaf using tinted icing. Assembly: Bake 9-by-13-inch white cake. Ice cake smooth with white frosting. Place decorated bears on cookie dough bases and place them on cake, leaving enough room for "cookie" books to stand between them. Using decorator tip No. 3, write message on cake with tinted black icing. Edge cake with decorator tip No. 18 shell border. Place pencil and apple on cake. Use black- tinted icing to add lead to tip of pencil. Eat the two leftover cookies as a reward for a job well-done. • Reporter Gary Demuth can be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 109, or by e-mail at sjgdemuth @saljournal. com Salina Journal Connecting communities with information 3:: km''"''"" ' \ Now Oniiinel http ://wwWiS3ljouma !xom/sa QUIlll FIND INDEX — 2-85 ...
