Happy Halloween

gang! It is beginning to be that time of year were I spend most of my time in the kitchen...I do that pretty much year around but I baked my balls off yesterday and did about 60 cupcakes. I was so done after the last one that I do not want to see cupcake batter for the next few months. After I decided to alter the cupcake a little and add less fudge frosting. I also could not find any damn white cotton candy for smoke so decided to add a little pretzel stick for the witches cauldron. They turned out pretty great my husband polished out about 3 of them and was ready for more. You see I do not taste my own baked goods.  With the amount of baking and cooking that I do I need to make sure that I have someone who is always willing to take one for the team and be my taste tester. I do not wan the extra calories so I have him do the hard job of testing all my goods. I know how long I need to sweat on the damn elliptical for just one bite of cupcake...Augh

I also put together about 24 of these little trick bags for my GG's class.... I am so glad that at least we can bring treats to her friends at school they will just go home with the little ones so the parents can decide to give it to them or not. I would hope that even the sugar nazis that live in my area would bend the rule for one night and have them enjoy this over the top sugary holiday. I am also super excited because in 22 days my awesome MIL is coming for a visit and is going to be here for the gobble gobble holiday. A first and we are super over the top happy she is coming.

Today is going to be a busy day....GG dress up day at school, parade, lunch then hopefully home for a nap and then off to a fire fighter BBQ and trick or treating with the little one......God I love this frigging day......
Everyone be safe and have a great day!
