HALLOWEEN GHOST CUPCAKES
Halloween is two days away and here’s a last minute, easy recipe that can be made for kids or by kids! In this case, I was making a treat for my grandson’s Pre-K group.
If you have, or have had, small children, then you know that they love the look of cupcakes but tend to eat decorations and frosting and leave the cupcake. That’s okay with me, ‘cause I had lots of fun just making them.
I mixed up a pumpkin cake batter and baked the cupcakes in orange cupcake papers covered with ghosts. While they cooled, I gathered the decorations and set up an assembly line in which my son (g’son’s uncle!) frosted and added ghost peeps. When he passed them on to me, I added the pumpkin and sprinkled the exposed white icing with green “grass”.

For those interested in a do-it-yourself project for kids of all ages, this is minimally messy and lots of fun.
