During the week leading up to Halloween, I usually like to make some fun treats for the boys. I'm a bit behind this year because of our recent trip so I have yet to make anything truly special. But since I wasn't blogging in 2008, I thought I'd post some pictures of what we did last year.
For our neighborhood pumpkin carving party, I made haunted pumpkin patch and spider web cupcakes.
And because Leo was in his preschool's owl class last year, I also made some owl cupcakes (got this one from my trusty Hello Cupcake book).
I displayed the cupcakes on a fun stand I picked up from the craft store. The stand was cute but also nothing but trouble to assemble, so I recommend you pass on it should you see it this year.
The cupcake pops are on my short list again for this year--the boys just love them--but as they take quite some time to make, they may get cut and we'll instead make Martha's monster pops (found via one of One Pretty Thing's Halloween Food roundup). I think a 'build your own monster pop' activity would be very well received.
We'll see what I come up with.
