Astroweenie Ball

I should've arrived at the 4th of July party I went to with a SPAM CAKE but I did not. My vintage oven is on the blink - oh well! Anyway, I decided to get creative and design some edible art inspired by something you'd see in one of those old 50s-60s Betty Crocker or Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks that I spend hours looking at. So I went to the store and this is what I came up with. This isn't a traditional vintage slide of the week but I wanted to share this with you – of course! Bring this to the party and you will be the belle of the ball -- the ASTRO WEENIE BALL -- that is.
