Halloween treats

Instead of the usual treats for my neighbor's two children, I decided to make them some cupcakes with a Halloween theme.

My daughter is out partying tonight, but I promised to save some for her.

Black icing is fun.

The cupcakes actually turned out well, and given my past cupcake history, that's amazing. I really like the icing. It reminds me of a royal icing, so it dries nicely and doesn't stay gooey.

The recipe can be found here.

Wow - I wish you were my neighbor! Gotta check out the recipe - I like icing that dries, too, because then it doesn't get smudged.

Those look so elegantly simple and festive. Black icing, how do you even start with black icing? I would have had it everywhere but where it was supposed to go...I am looking at your lines and they look absolutely perfect!
