Crisco Mincemeat Halloween Cakes

The Halloween Cakes look adorable and very edible, but I would just like to go on record as saying that mincemeat is a horrible term. Because it is so horrible I had avoided it pretty much my whole like. I always expected to bite into a mincemeat cake and get a mouth full of frosted beef. Not even the description on wikipedia works for me and I have since tasted it and kind if liked it, but I read this and blech.

Mincemeat is a mixture of chopped dried fruit, distilled spirits and spices, and sometimes beef suet, beef, or venison.

Oh well. Enjoy this ad and recipe from Crisco…
