Evenly distribute the yellow
batter into the tins, then top

Just before serving, whip up
a pint of heavy cream with a
1/4 C sugar and 1 tsp vanilla
extract until stiff.

tip or a sandwich bag with the
corner snipped off  pipe a dollop
of whipped cream onto each
cupcake, then add a piece of
candy corn to each one.

Boo!
Remember my AWESOME
stand from an early summer
garage sale? Well, here it is
all dolled up for Halloween!
The jack-o-lantern tea light
is from Old World Pottery
(bad store :) ) and the mini
pumpkin table scatters are
from Target.

Have a great day!

  4. Cute, cute, cute! I love your Fall/Halloween touches. I finally got a few things out myself, but feel so behind this year. (I figured it was going to be this way...so glad I jumped back into teaching by only going part/time...my littles still need me...and apparently my house does too! LOL) Hope all is well. My kids are loving using all the pushpins and post-its you gifted to me! HUGS!

    1. Thanks!
      There are times that I feel
      soooo far behind. It just hangs
      out and pops outs sometimes.

      Glad you are enjoying your goodies.

      Part-time was probably a very good idea
