Halloween Cupcake!

Halloween Cupcakes



Okay, time to come clean.


I am not good at baking! (Gasp!)

While I could skirt around less complicated recipes for baking, I was never good at ambitious projects in the kitchen with my baking skills. I  manage to make cookies and bread without incidents somehow and even with that, I must tread lightly. So, you could imagine, baking a cake, that too a cupcake is a distant dream for me…well, it remained as a dream until recently!

While looking around for goodies to make for this Halloween, I happened to come across a recipe (or rather devise one tailored to my level) which appeared to be quite easy to execute. I was so tempted to try my hand at the cupcake in question even though the ingredients I was supposed to be using to bake this were totally under the risk of to be thrown out quite possibly as a result of a failed mission.

But a risk taker that I was all my life, I went ahead with my cupcake adventure…and I am so glad that I did not let my ‘baking phobia’ to get ahead of me with my Halloween Cupcake project.

Because, for the first time in life, I succeeded in baking a cupcake of my own! I was so pleased with the results that I wanted to share it with all of you. And I hope you will find this Halloween Cupcake as yummy and fab looking as I thought it did

    You’re certainly not alone. I’m no good at baking or doing anything cooking related either but I do like to try. This looks yummy but not sure if I would try the frosting. I would much rather buy it to be on the safe side. Pinning. πŸ™‚

      Glad to find a kindred spirit here, thank you πŸ™‚ Yes, you could make this without frosting too since the cake itself is delish! I hope you try it and thanks for pinning πŸ™‚

    For not being what you call a baker, those cupcakes turned out great looking. Maybe you have found your niche! I like the cany corn cupcake papers.

    Those are super cute, and they look super easy for being homemade. I must confess I am not a terrible baker, but I have never made a cake or frosting from scratch. I am going to have to try to make these

    i need to start using a bag to put on frosting because it makes it look that much better instead of trying to put it on with a knife or anything else.

    My family would love these, they look delicious! I never wanted to bake because I was always scared of messing things up, but I had to make a cake for a friend and it was pretty good and since then I have become really good at baking. I love the holidays because I get to show off, LOL!
