No Tricks, All Treats

In past years, I always made treats for Kiddo's holiday party. He attends a small charter school this year, so there are less kids, more parents making treats, and smaller parties. Way to steal my thunder!

While I've aced the Christmas cupcake, I'm just getting warmed up in the Halloween treat department. Last year I went all out:


I made the vegan chocolate cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (insanely easy and deeelish!). I lurv that cookbook and have sung it's praises more than once. I topped them with their vegan buttercream frosting, rolled them in crushed chocolate graham crackers, and finished off them with various fondant "bones." My husband is so awesome...he bought me a huge bucket of fondant just for the occasion. I have enough to last a lifetime of Halloweens. The bone molds were a couple bucks at Joann Fabric. It was such a simple, fun project.

I can't stop here! There's so much untapped Halloween goodie potential! Whether they want them or not, these kids are getting my cupcake creations. Just kidding. My lack of baked good outlets is not going to keep me from flexing my cupcake muscles. I've been collecting fun Pinterest ideas...the more fondant involved, the better.

Simple, but super cute!


I've been wanting to make these for ages!


I don't even know where to begin...but I love these! I see peach rings...


Another simple classic...

Stenciled Chocolate Cupcakes

These look so fun! No frosting...so the cake has to be really good.

Don't forget my first giveaway is going on! Guess Kiddo's costume and you could win a $10 Amazon e-card!
