Wizard of Oz

Our Young Women in Excellence program sported a Wizard of Oz theme. We had lovely decorations; a 'watch out for tornadoes' sign along the path of tornadoes, a 'Lollipop gang' poster along with giant lollipops, winged monkey place mats and a rainbow of values table for displaying the young women's projects.
The food table was fun as well including melted witch punch, witch repellent (water), Ding-dongs (the witch is dead), and melted witch cupcakes. The cupcakes are a basic chocolate cake mix with a surprise filling that is white.
The recipe is fairly simple and easy to make. Make the cake mix according to directions on the package and fill each cupcake 2/3 of the way full. Drop a tablespoon of the following mixture on top. 4 oz. cream cheese, 2 Tbsp. butter, 1/4 C. sugar. Add 1 egg, 1 Tbsp. flour, 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 C. chocolate chips, and 1/2 C. coconut. Bake at 350* for 15-20 minutes. Cool and frost.

I also made a ruby slipper for each girl. The slipper pattern can be found online. These were placed on a boxed candy wrapped in yellow brick road paper and tied with a cute saying.
