I consider myself a 'guest chef' for my mom's dessert cafe (www.oldtowndessertcafe.com), and I've been collecting ideas for Halloween. And finally- the time has come! I got the green light to create Halloween themed treats!
Getting my thoughts in order was quite the process. First, the easy part: bake. When the counter was covered in mini cupcakes, chocolate and white that I dyed orange, I worked up some buttercream and went to town. I made all kinds of wonderfulness:
Phew! It was a lot of work! I am quite pleased with the end result, I think they really have Halloween spirit! Our kitchen suffered a bit. Ethan joked that we were creating a dreamland for ants, a thought that had me verging on tears as I imagined waking up to my little creatures covered in little creatures. This morning, however, we were ant free!! Hooray!! I think my creative bug has been satisfied for a few days...
