Halloween Cupcakes

These two ideas couldn’t be easier and my kids love them. Hope you and yours will too!

The Mummy
These cupcakes are so insanely easy:  bake cupcakes and lightly frost with white frosting. Fill a baggy with frosting and snip a corner so that you can make 1/4″ wide stripes across the cupcakes. Press chocolate chops in between a layer of the mummy’s gauze for eyes and voila!

Wrapped myself in toilet paper,
Head to toe to tummy,
Wrapped myself in toilet paper,
Thought that I’d be funny.
Wrapped myself in toilet paper,
Thought they’d call me “Mummy.”
Wrapped myself in toilet paper,
They just call me dummy.
-Shel Silverstein

The Hairy Spider
Bake cupcakes and frost cupcakes (any color). Frost the top and sides of an Oreo with chocolate frosting and dip in chocolate sprinkles. I used mini M&Ms for eyes but you could also use tubes of gel frosting. Gel frosting also is great for the legs, or black string licorice is really cute too if you can find it. Creepy crawly!

Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
“‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that you ever did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”
“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again.”
-Mary Howitt

Good Morning!

This week I shared another little-bother recipe - cinnamon swirl oat bread. So delicious with a smear of butter!

I also shared an article I wrote explaining how flour can go sour, and how grain bugs get into our food. a great week!

Hello Lisa...I am so sorry to hear of your eye incident...Hope you will be back to having both eyes functioning perfect again.

P.s. At least you don't have to put make-up on both eyes for a while... ( ;)

So sorry about your eye! That must have felt so bad. Another reason to avoid cleaning at all costs! Hope you're on the mend.

Sorry about your eye, Lisa! Hope you're up and around soon. I'd take that as an omen cleaning the garage should be left to others!:)
