Spooky Graveyard Cupcakes

We're getting ready for Halloween at our house!
I love this time of year...
All of the spooktacular decorations, the candy, the fun!

No matter what time of year, there's always something yummy baking in the oven.
I never need a reason to get creative in the kitchen, and these little treats were no exception!

SpOoKy GrAveYard CuPcaKes!!

Aren't these super cute?!

I made them for my son's school Halloween party...

Ghoulishly delicious devil's food cupakes
With eerie sugar cookie tombstones,
candy pumpkins, fondant skulls and ghosts.

These cupcake liners have a surprise greeting when you turn them over.
Trick -or- Treat!

I accented my wire tiered tray with real, preserved oak leaves.

Decorating for each holiday can easily get expensive,
but by re-using things you already have on hand,
things you find in nature, and things you can make inexpensively like my cheesecloth ghosts,
you can give your house a spectacular and festive touch without breaking the bank.

We'll be watching Halloween specials this weekend,
and getting ready for trick-or-treating on Monday.

Are you all ready for the little ghosts and goblins that will coming to your door?

Happy Halloween!

  1. I love your cupcakes Judy; so creative. I was told yesterday that the school I work at doesn't want homemade treats; they would rather have them store bought. What's with that? Things are sure changing.


Thanks so much for your comment! I love hearing from you!
