Vampire Cookies

Vampire Cookies, bitten

Every year I see lots of Halloween cupcakes and cakes that are rather boring in their decorations. They may have faces of ghosts or vampires painted on top with colored icing, but that really doesn’t do much to set them apart from non-holiday cupcakes. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I think it’s fun to go over-the-top where ever possible and really take ... Read More »

Slime-Filled Cupcakes from the Black Lagoon

Slime-Filled Cupcakes from the Black Lagoon!

Last year, I celebrated Halloween with a batch of Vampire Cupcakes. The cupcakes were filled with a gooey, thick cherry pie filling that made the cupcake look like it was bleeding when you bit into it. I planned on baking more this year, but couldn’t help but wonder if I could take the concept in another direction to make another Halloween treat to complement it. ... Read More »

Last minute Halloween cupcake ideas

bloggers' h'ween cupcakes!

 While I liked all of my Halloween creations this year, my vampire cupcakes were the things that really got me excited. Slime-Filled Cupcakes are sure to get people talking at a Halloween party, too, and take a close second to the vampire cupcakes. I know I’m not the only one who goes all out decorating (baked goods, in this case) for Halloween, either. If you’re ... Read More »

Need a scary, foodie Halloween costume idea?

terrifying halloween costume

I’ve been keeping an eye out for interesting Halloween costumes this year, although I already have my costume* all planned out. I like costumes that are on the scary side, which rules out most of the food-related costumes on the market. They tend to be oversized bananas or chili peppers or something along those lines. This isn’t to say that I haven’t seen a few interesting ... Read More »

Mummy Cookies with White Chocolate Wrapping

chocolate mummy cookies

A few Halloweens ago, I baked up a batch of Gingerbread Skeleton cookies. They were made with a fairly typical gingerbread dough – complete with lots of spices and molasses – and I used some white icing (a mixture of powdered sugar, vanilla and milk) to create some spooky designs on the cut out cookies. They were some of my all time favorite cookies, not ... Read More »

Halloween cupcake wrappers

Halloween cupcake wrappers

 I don’t necessarily go for lots of seasonal baking tools, changing up the color of my mixing bowls and whatnot to suit the current season or holiday. I probably would if I could, but I would need a much bigger kitchen (with a whole lot more storage space) before I could even consider starting up such a collection. There are, however, a few seasonal baking items ... Read More »

Vampire Cupcakes

vampire cupcake: money shot

It was a dark and stormy (read: there was a heavy drizzle) night when a discussion of Halloween costumes let to a discussion on Halloween baked goods. I already had a spiderweb chocolate tart and some pumpkin muffins planned, but I wanted to come up with something dramatic. Something impressive. Something that a dark and spooky holiday – albeit a candy-centric one – deserved. And ... Read More »

How to Toast Pumpkin Seeds

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

The first time that I had toasted pumpkin seeds was in elementary school. I specifically remember my 1st grade teacher having us bring in seeds and toasting them – by which I mean watching her toast them – in the school’s kitchen. I don’t remember how they turned out, but it sure was fun. These days, I’m not even sure if you’re allowed to celebrated Halloween ... Read More »
