Going Batty

Halloween comes so fast, like a speeding train heading right for you with all the winter holiday cars trailing behind. Make a costume, buy a costume, plan a party, RSVP, buy candy, it is all a little much.

We do LOVE this holiday even though it seems like a lot of work. It comes and goes so fast and we like to start early squeezing every last drop of black and orange out of October. Start early, don't miss the train and have fun along the way!

For these free form cupcakes we made very ugly face cakes. We decided to make the ugliest frosting colors we could. We made a Frankenstein green and an Graveyard gray. To decorate I gave the kids sugar eyes from the cake supply store. Some ended up with one eye and some with three!
To make the tongue and ears we worked Starburst candy until it was soft and shaped them to our liking. If you are in a rush, preorder unfrosted cupcakes from your grocery store to save time.
Let your imagination go, use up all the old candy you have to make room for the new stuff.
I can assure you there will be more spooky Halloween posts to come.

Very cool stuff. I am trying to make Halloween less "plastic" this year. More more more...
