4 days away!
What am I excited about? I really shouldn't be. I am just going to sit there and eat 4 treats for every 1 given out. By the end of the night I will be thinking, I should start that diet, and by the next day I'll be baking some more cakes and eating more sweets. It's a vicious cycle, and not just because it's Halloween.
These are more photos from my Iron Cupcake Halloween challenge. The cupcake was marbled with a bright orange cake and chocolate. When I bake my marble cakes I love to have bold stripes through them rather than scattered spots. How I achieve this is just simply layering the cake batter when pouring in the cupcake pan. One dollop of chocolate, one of orange.
(I just wanted to use the word dollop).
Fake blood recipe
1 cup corn syrup
1 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp red food colouring
Add a drop green food coloring to deepen the colour.
Not your ordinary cupcake. I tried a special alcoholic treat yesterday, a vanilla cake with a shot of Tequila Rose (strawberry cream) in the middle, with a chocolate and vanilla buttercream. Let you know how it goes.
I also made my special cappuccino buttercream with some Baileys.
didyouknow? It is a myth that alcohol that you add to your dish evaporates during cooking. You actually have to cook something for a good three hours to get rid of all traces of alcohol.
Baked for another tasting for a bride to be. Pictured above is their choices of red & white, black & white, ciao, cake... and a few extra surprises. www.cupcakedesign.ca/menu.html

Did you guess right? Now guess cookie monster's age. Nope, it's not "30". He was born in 1969, making him 41 years old.
The blue fur is buttercream icing piped with a Wilton tip that typically can create grass, and the eyes are made from fondant. The cookies were baked in the shape of 3 and 0, my first time doing that so it's not perfect but they formed a cute bubble letter shape.
This sculpture cake was so much fun to do. Can you guess who it will be? The answer posted on sunday.
I'm blessed to have so many people encourage me and want to place orders. Thank you for the confidence boost! Sometimes I need it.
