For Halloween or any spooky time, there's Spider Cakes made with chocolate cupcakes or filled cakes and Pocky or icing - there's a couple different ways to do things on the link.
For the Elvis fan in your life, there's how to make an embroidered tea towel with the recipe for Fried Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches.
Speaking of peanut butter, why not try Making Your Own Peanut Butter Cups? Also good for holidays, I'm thinking...
I didn't get to go to last year's Texas State Fair, which was a bummer. But this was a news article from pre-fair. Fatty Foods Duke It Out For Title of Best Fried Fare at State Fair of Texas. Is there nothing that can't be fried?
Or, if you're in a real hurry, you can try Chocolate Cake in 5 Minutes in a Mug. If you don't have cake flour, just use regular flour and decrease the qty a little bit (1 tsp to 1 tbsp - see comments).
Lastly, if I knew how to make this, I would make it in a heartbeat for my baby nephew: Katamari Damacy Prince of All Cosmos Baby Hat. Just look at the photo. Adorkable.
