Happy Halloween! I know I am a big fan of holidays in general but Halloween is an especially cute holiday. The decorations, the attempt at being scary, adorable costumes- whether they be pet costumes or kiddie costumes, and well- a holiday based on candy and chocolate- you just can't go wrong? Sadly, I did not get a costume this year- but last year I was Elmo (wanted to be cookie monster or a crayon this year). I figure stocking up on potential Halloween costumes that could be re-used when working in a children's hospital, is a good idea :)
Angie, a friend from school- hosted a Halloween Party. Sadly- I did not end up going! Remember that sinus headache I've been experiencing? Well- the Halloween party fell smack dab in the middle of my horrible headache exprience. So I chose to sleep, which is rare- because I never turn down a baking opportunity. Luckily the hubby had a Halloween party for his work. I knew I wanted to make cupcakes, because I have not made them in awhile and I stumbled upon these adorable ones on, well of course, on Pinterest.
Plus- I came up with this pretty niffty idea for buttercream. Buttercream can be difficult to make, especially vanilla- and can taste-- not so vanilla, so I though of a great idea to make a tasty and creamy vanilla buttercream. However, as original as I thought- I realized that others have been doing this for a while and I was just late to the party ;) I just had to make these- though the hubby failed to tell me that his work was having a contest for the ghouliest dessert-- too late-- instead he brought a cute dessert, kinda the same thing right ;)
