Here is the cake and bat brownies for the bat party. These bats were  cut out of black cardstock and glued with hot glue onto floral wire. Crushed Oreos adorn the top of the cake to resemble dirt.

A red velvet surprise awaits inside this cake.

To make these cute, chocolate bat wings: melt chocolate of your choice and put it in a plastic ziploc baggie. Snip one corner of the baggie to let the melted chocolate out. Draw a bat wing with the chocolate and fill in the outline with more chocolate. If needed, use a skewer to help move the chocolate around enough to fill in every spot. Make a small slit in the top of the brownies for the wings. After the chocolate has cooled, carefully lift the chocolate wings and place into the slit in the top of the brownie.

Make sure to trace these bats onto black paper cardstock or use the leftover black cardstock from the invites. Click on the picture above for the PDF link.
