Halloween and a Party

I'm a little late in getting the last of my Halloween cupcakes up. Oh well, ideas for next year!

These are vanilla cupcakes tinted orange with chocolate buttercream. I had the cute bat liners so I thought I would match that. I had some leftover pie crust from something so I used that to cut out tiny bats and baked them. After they cooled I piped chocolate on the tops of them and took orange sprinkles and cut them in half for the eyes.

Sometimes I'm a little hesitant to reveal my secrets because then ya'll will know how easy it all really is : )

In addition to the Halloween cupcakes I did this cute cupcake tower this weekend for a surprise 50th birthday party. I'm a little rusty on cakes (as in it's been a year since I've made one?!), so I was thrilled with how it turned out. No worries though the cake pans are officially dusted off and my cake skills are returning.

The cake and bottom layer cupcakes are Snickerdoodle cupcakes and the other ones are double chocolate. All the decorations are edible.

So now that Halloween has passed (in my mind) it's officially Christmas season. I am SO excited. I have so many Christmas cupcake ideas swirling in my head that I can't wait to try out. and show ya'll. Except we just have to get over this whole Thanksgiving pie phase I'm in. Oh well, only a few more weeks!

Those bat cupcakes are so cute! I never thought of cutting shapes out of pastry crust! What a great idea. And love the cupcake tower...snickerdoodle sounds scrumptious!
