Last minute Halloween Cupcakes

By on Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Today I thought I would bring you three great last minute Halloween Cupcake ideas!  You may have heard of it already, but Zilly Rosen recently released her book Zombie Cupcakes in the UK.  It is coming to America soon, but the best news is that you don’t have to wait as Made for Moms features three ideas complete with recipe and decoration directions!  There are the Zombie Rising Chocolate Mud Cakes, the Brain Food Honey Cupcakes and last but not least the Bludgeon to Survive Pumpkin Cupcakes.  Check out each of them by clicking on the links.

My favorite?  I can’t go past the Bludgeon to Survive cupcakes shown here, especially as you need to make crowbars, baseball bats and shovels!

But alas, I have already made my cupcakes for this year, zombies with with chocolate ganache filling!  Yummy!

Mad Science Cupcake Cake

By on Tuesday, September 21st, 2010


My great friend Anne just shared this awesome cake she ordered from her Target bakery for her son’s seventh birthday.  The party had a mad science theme and the beaker pull-apart cupcake cake was a perfect fit.  This would be a great cake to make for a Halloween party too.   I wish my local Target had a bakery!

Happy Birthday Avery!

Cupcake Costumes for Halloween

By on Friday, September 10th, 2010


My wonderful sister-in-law, Holly, called my this week to excitedly tell me about this new adult cupcake costume she found in Costume Express.  How awesome is this at only $46.99?!  I think it’s more of a sexy cupcake costume  and you might need to wear a little something underneath or you might reveal more than you planned!


   They also had a child’s version for $34.99.  Both are brand new and aren’t available until September 22nd.   

I also found this adorable cupcake candy bag and costume from Pottery Barn.  The costume is $59 and the matching bag is only $14.  So stinkin’ cute!

So what are your sweet (or spooky!) costume plans this year?

The dark cupcake lurks within…

Check out these spooky black cupcake liners from Confectionery House and the skull and bones liners from Squires Kitchen. So it seems I’m not the only one longing to bake on the dark side.
