Halloween Cupcakes

Happy Halloween! How was everyone's weekend? My horror fest with Jim fell a little short on Saturday night but I've still got today to make up for it. I did, however, bake some delicious Halloween cupcakes.








I love baking. I might have mentioned that before, but I truly do. My problem is I often bake too much and don't have enough people to feed my creations to. It's sad. So usually Jim takes them to work. These are chocolate cupcakes with pumpkin cream cheese frosting. But I'm not sure if it can really be considered cream cheese frosting - it also has a lot of butter in it. I got the recipe for the pumpkin frosting here, but I tweaked it just a smidge, replacing the cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg with pumpkin pie spice. Because really, its kinda the same thing, and I'm lazy. The chocolate cupcakes are Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate chocolate cake recipe, which you can find here or one the back of a Hershey's cocoa box. :D

Hope you guys have a great Halloween! I for one will be catching up on The Walking Dead.

I love the cupcake cups (I forgot what they're called) lol .. It's so festive and just right.
The chocolate cupcakes look delish. I have the same problem. I bake too much with too little mouths to feed. Sometimes. Other times, my brothers and their friends (if they're not scared to try my food) are just wolves lol.

OMG - these look delicious! I love baking myself but I don't really have the time for it these days. During my school breaks though I try to get the kids to spend time in the kitchen so we would make pre-mix cupcakes, that's about all the skills I have. The decorations are superb as well, now you are making me jealous ;)
