    How do you get a clean edge on the skulls when cutting? Using a scissors or knife, the sticky edges of the cut marshmallow cling to the utensil and make a mess.

    Would appreciate larger photo and more detailed instructions. Also, where do I get the recipe for the MINI SWEET POTATO DOUGHNUTS WITH BROWN BUTTER GLAZE?

    Can the madeleines be piped(star tip) onto a cookie sheet instead of using a specialty pan? I already have far to many single use baking pans/sheets. Linda H.

    What are the cute, little other goodies that are on the table with the madeleines? I'm having a haunted house this Halloween for all the trick-or-treaters and these all would be sure to please!
