  3. My only problem is it would be hard to dig into those cute little smiling faces! Neat idea!

  4. Very creative. It always tickles me to see halloween creations. ;)

  5. I love the cheese balls.
    I picked up some goat cheese today and was going to try to mix it up with rum and raisins or chambord and pineapple. Not sure how that will taste but it makes me want to have a party just to see how it goes over. Ted's not a good test subject because...believe it or not...he isn't crazy about goat cheese. I'll end up having to eat the concoctions all myself. Maybe not a bad thing. ;)

  6. Very cute! They have to be delicious! I would probably devour most of it before anyone could get near. Love all that cheese!

  11. Oh this is too much fun. So cute I almost couldn't eat them. Remember I said "almost."

  12. You're cheesehead balls look so delicious! I could eat them with a spoon! So cute.

  13. These are so cute! I love it when food looks like people... seriously. Growing up my grandma would make this Armenian sweetbread for us around Easter and she would shape the dough into people. My mom still humors us every Easter, haha :) I think these cheeseball heads would be perfect for a party, so playful!
