Late night shinanigans

I consider myself a 'guest chef' for my mom's dessert cafe (, 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...


  1. OH MY GOSH. SERIOUSLY! Open your own bake shop dude! Each one of those was SOOOO Creative!!!!!! I LOVE IT! Can I taste one? YUM! :)

  2. I love the owls! And the ghosts! And the eyeballs! Oh, I wish I had seen those before Halloween. Oh, well, next year :)
