Cute "Mice" cakes decorated with Licorice

I discovered another use for those ever-handy licorice laces: Cute mice cakes. Because of the unique combination of pumpkin, maple syrup and German chocolate, it makes a great fall treat, if you want to serve something a little less scary-looking than typical Halloween fare. Perfect for a "harvest party," kids birthday party or game night. You can even add a whimsical touch to your Thanksgiving celebration. You can find the complete recipe and directions here.

If you can't find black food coloring, you can make the mice pure white and use bits of licorice laces for the eyes, nose and mouth.

Licorice Laces are available from Licorice International Just click on the word licorice laces to go directly to the page. These tasty treats are made with real licorice root and come from Finland, where licorice is especially popular.
