Cupcakes Go Boo

Halloween is a fabulous holiday.  What's not to love about candy, more candy, crazy outfits, and, um, more candy?  Even more than dressing ourselves in costume, my husband and I love dressing our dog.  She's been a pumpkin, a lady bug, a skunk.  One of my personal favorites is her chicken costume. 

For some reason, I don't think she enjoys it so much.  Perhaps she'd rather eat it than be it.

In addition to absurd outfits, Halloween is prime time for baking.  There are countless spooky, creepy, elaborate, insane things that you can bake to celebrate.  Yet...

Sometimes, you just want to go old school.  No fondant, just fun.  This was one of those times.  Today, it was all about cupcakes and decorations that a two-year-old could handle (literally).  We invited over our favorite local toddler and went to town.  The frosting was blobbed on and so were the candy corn, bats, sprinkles, licorice, and gummy finger puppets.

The results?  Completely silly and downright delicious.  The trick of this treat?  Keep it simple...

Keep it sweet.
