CHICAGO, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Calling all ghouls, goblins and ghosts: Pillsbury Baking is introducing three exciting new products that finally make slime as delicious to eat as it is fun to play with! New Funfetti™ Slime Frosting, Funfetti™ Slime Cake Mix and Funfetti™ Slime Brownie Mix make any gathering more festive, whether hosting a haunted house for neighbors in the backyard, making treats for a virtual school party or simply enjoy time baking together as a family throughout October.
Funfetti™ Slime Cake Mix and Funfetti™ Slime Frosting
The wickedly awesome Funfetti™ Slime Cake Mix is a chocolate cake mix – the first-ever in Funfetti's™ seasonal line – and includes green, purple, orange and white candy bits. The colorful cake mix is made more 'faBOOlous' once decorated with vanilla flavored Funfetti™ Slime Frosting that is slime green with purple and black sprinkles, plus black-and-white eyeball sprinkles for eerie fun!
Funfetti™ Slime Brownie Mix
You'll earn extra brownie points for the devilishly delicious Funfetti™ Slime Brownie Mix that's disguised with purple, green and white candy bits. Families can add some excitement by frosting them with Funfetti™ Slime Frosting and making their own monster creations!
Those who prefer to 'creep' it more traditional can enjoy Funfetti™ Halloween Cake Mix with orange and black candy bits and top with orange Funfetti™ Halloween Frosting complete with orange pumpkin sprinkles, black bat sprinkles and regular white, orange, and black sprinkles. To pipe like a pro, the Funfetti™ Halloween Frosting Pastry Bag uses a built-in star tip to make four distinct designs – stars, rosettes, swirls and waves. For a more magical celebration, new pink Funfetti™ Mermaid Strawberry Frosting and purple Funfetti™ Llama Love Vanilla Frosting will be the icing on the cake to any mermaid or llama-themed Halloween costume.
