Last night I baked some cupcakes.

they totally didn't  "go together"

as one batch was more "halloweenie" and pumpkin flavored (recipe can be found on my recipe page)

and the other more "spring-ish" looking and plain ol yellow.

I was just going to make the pumpkin ones, but I got worried that no one would like them, so I made the yellow ones too.  Turns out I was worried for nothin' (as usual). 

Two cupcakes pans came back empty....that's a good thing.

Funny thing was Amanda came home for the twins' birthday and to play 'dartball' (which is why I made cupcakes....somebody signed me up to make snacks last night....hmmm, wonder who did that?)

And she saw my green cake stand and asked if I bought a new one.

I said no, why?

And she said "because I never saw this one before (at least I don't remember seeing it)...I thought you either bought a new one or spray painted an old one."

HA, my kids know me so well - it's actually kind of scary!

My penchant for cake stands and spray paint LOL!


Oh and speaking of baking cupcakes......

I have a winner of my fall apron (drawn via random number generator).

I am downright addicted to candy corn. Must.stop.buying!!!
As for homemade treats (or at least home-assembled), I love "ghost cookies". Dip a Nutter Butter in white chocolate and add a couple of mini chocolate chips for eyes = a delicious little ghost!
LOVE that apron! :)

Congrats Mandy!!!!

and a big old thank you to all that entered!!
