Halloween Cupcakes (Part 1)
- homemade buttercream icing for decoration
I threw my little cousin a Halloween party in October and planned elaborate dessert decorations. Of course, I became extremely sick the week before the party. All my edible decorations: cupcake graveyard, brownie spiders, pumpkin cake pops went out the window.
Just as I was recovering towards the end of the week and the day before the party our oven element broke in half. I was devastated. Instead of giving up and just buying a store bought cake (yuck) I called around and ordered four dozen un-iced cupcakes. Of course my black velvets would have to wait until another time as they would only give me vanilla and chocolate.
Anyway, these are the results of my last minute icing extravaganza. I had made some chocolate pieces the night before just so I had some extra things to decorate with.
