La.Pi.S. #20 & WS #32: Halloween Treats Dry-Run

Last night, I made chocolate cupcakes from scratch and decorated them in a Halloween motif as a dry-run of sorts for the Halloween treats I will be making come Friday (Halloween) and Saturday (for a Halloween Party).

While the recipe I found on the internet turned out decent cupcakes, I feel it needs a bit of tweaking.  For Halloween, I might just use a different recipe altogether. :D

I used the stencils, sprinkles and sticks I bought from Michael’s last week, to decorate the cupcakes.

I found using the stencils to be a little tricky because I had to position them right on the frosting.

And who should appear while I was re-taking photos this morning?

Guess what she’s thinking…

There’s really no need to spell it out for you.

Abby kept asking, “Mommy, are you done taking pictures?”  Hahaha!  I had to pick up the pace so she can get her hands on the monster cupcakes (pun intended!).

I used the Vanilla Pillsbury frosting for these goodies and just added a few drops of food color to them.  I might draw up a new battle plan for my halloween treats.  I’ll most probably use chocolate frosting next time…yes, from scratch. ;)

Yesterday, we attended a halloween activity at the mall, my other WS entry.  We have a full week ahead of us!

Have a great new week, y’all!
