Jack-O-Lantern Cuppies!


As I was driving home the other day I got this great idea for a Halloween cupcake that I had never seen before. I got the idea of carving a cupcake just like you would a pumpkin! Fill the pumpkin with yellow frosting a.k.a the candle light! and then draw the face on the front. So I decided to try it out. I grabbed a box yellow cake mix and added some food coloring to get an orange color. I then cut into the top to carve out the center. I filled it with yellow icing and then put the top on. I placed a piece of pretzel in for the stem and then proceeded to draw on the jack-o-lantern face!

Now not every single one turned out like my vision I must say! So I experimented with the decorating just for fun! I also added some orange sparkles to the tops of some of the jack-o-lanterns and that gave them that extra something that they seemed to be missing!

Hi Honey; They are very cute. i am sure your co-workers will enjoy them.

I really loved the hamburger cupcakes. i am going to make them for logan's football team before their next game!

keep up with the good ideas!

You know your mom and I have been doing those healthy eating meetings with Gigi, well I have been experimenting with baking too! I am using a product called Agave Nectar. it is liquid and looks like honey but not as thick. it tastes delicious and I use it to sweeten up my oatmeal and cereal. It is a very healthy natural sugar that even diabetics can digest.

I am trying substituting it in my cookies and breads, along with applesauce for oil and Trader Joe's white/wheat flour. so far I made banana bread and it was good but not great. I still need to add more nectar and more bananas. But the applesauce worked great as a substitute for oil. I will still use butter in other recipes but anything that calls for crisco, solid or melted and oil I will use applesauce instead! I will let you know how it goes! Love ya and talk to you later!


PS I have lost 8 pounds in one month with Gigi suggestions but the inches lost have been tremendous. 2 inches everywhere except for 4 in my waist. Without exercise! It is incredible! good Luck!

These are cute. I especially like the spiderwebs and sprinkled cuppies. Great idea with the jack-o-lanterns!

They are a cute idea... they just did not come out as cute as the idea was mentally... they were missing something...
