Happy Halloween!

What more can a kid ask for than a holiday that is all about playing dress up and consuming mass amounts of candy? Sounds like heaven. The holiday doesn't even seem to get old either. As a kid it was all about trick-or-treating with your pillow case and anxiously waiting for Dad to "approve" all my candy before I could dig in. These days, it doesn't quite involve the door to door begging for sweets but it still has the same excitement each year. New costumes, decorations, and sweets! 

To get into the Halloween spirit I had to whip up some chocolate cupcakes with orange cream cheese frosting and some fall sprinkles for decoration. Cupcakes are great for all holidays and occasions because there are SO many flavors, colors, and decorations that you can make! If you can think of it, you can most likely convert it into a cupcake. They are great for parties too because of their individual serving size. Are you baking cupcakes this holiday season? Send me your ideas and pictures! I'd love to see what you are working on out there!

ALSO, here is a great tip for getting that sticky cake batter into the baking cups. Get a large ziplock (or pastry bag) and put the batter in the bag, cut off the tip of the bag and then you can pipe the batter into the cups. Its fast, easy, and clean!!
