Cupcakes, Cookies, Candy, and Other Goodies

Here is a roundup of the easiest and quickest Wizard of Oz treat ideas on the web, all in one handy place. You'll find adorable cupcakes, cookies, candies and other treats that can be put together in a snap.

The key to keeping things simple is to think of iconic images from the movie and go from there. Here, youâll find lots of food based on colors of the rainbow. Youâll also find lots of ideas that invoke "good witches" and "bad witches"

And donât miss the "tin man kisses." Clever, and super-simple!

Use the Table of Contents below to quickly navigate to something specific. Or, simply keep paging down the site for more ideas.

Click on any of the blue links to get to a site which will show photos and directions on how to make these simple treats.

This is probably the easiest and most inexpensive idea of all. Make some cupcakes and frost them with blue, pink, or yellow icing. Sprinkle with some rainbow sprinkles, and then top them off with these ruby slippers, which double as a bookmark for your guests, once all the frosting is licked off.

If you'd like an easy way to add a little more panache to your cupcakes, bake them in these cute blue gingham liners.

If you are a little more handy with doing frosting decoration, this inexpensive kit provides the characters and the pedestal with the slippers on top. You ice in the yellow brick road, the flowers, and the edging.

 

Here’s a way to get the look of the cakes you see in the bakery. You just peel the backing off of this edible icing art and apply it to your freshly frosted cake. The image is 7.5” by 10,” so it’s suitable for a small (1/4) sheet cake. It would probably look best if you pipe some frosting edging around it.

These figurines are nice to use as cake decorations because your guest of honor can keep them a mementos. Again, you’re on your own when it comes to icing the cake.

I really like the idea of using fruit at parties. It's sweet as candy, but the fruits have lots of great nutrients. And they look splendid.

For this salad, mix together fresh blueberries, cubed pineapple and sliced strawberries. Add the sliced kiwi and bananas last, and pour on the following dressing:

1/3 cup orange juice

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 ½ Tbsp. honey

¼ tsp ground ginger

Dash of nutmeg

You can also skewer the fruit on big toothpicks and skip the dressing (though you’ll want to dip the banana slices in lemon or orange juice to prevent them from getting brown.)

Rainbow Lollipops

These stars can be "Good witch of the North" wands for your guests. That is, until they are eaten up.

It’s amazing how table covering can set the whole look of a party. These plastic table covers are inexpensive and reminiscent of Dorothy’s blue checkered dress.

 

At press time, these favor boxes were almost 70% off. This kit saves you the hassle of trying to go out and find all the items yourself. Each box includes a sticker sheet, a ruby lip gloss keychain, a “There’s No Place Like Home” bracelet, a ruby shoe filled with candy, and a mini silver star wand. They are all packaged in a box made to look like Dorothy’s basket—cute!

Note that items of similar quality might be substituted, due to availability.
