A Trip Back to Last Year

Hey there!
Okay so my lazy butt has still not uploaded the pictures of my 
green chili stew! I promise I will this weekend
I am just not in the mood to find the silly camera cord and then plug it in and wait for it to load and then select the pictures and what not. 
However, I intend to take more pictures of other things this weekend so I will load them all at the same time :-). 

Today nothing very exciting happened. Got to have lunch with my mom and Adam at Flying Star today 
which was a lot of fun so that was the best part of the work day!
Unfortunately Kristin was not there to help us! :-(

Another good part of today was I have no ran two days in a row! Can you believe it?! I can't!
I was not going to but then I thought hey maybe if I keep it up I will always want to go running when I get home from work. Besides I figured I would not get to run much this weekend. 
But on the running note my goal for today was to run .60 without stopping, that would be .05 more than yesterday well so I walked .10 to warm up and then
I started running and once I hit the .60 mark I felt like I could do more so I decided to keep going and see how far I can run and guess how far I could run???!? Anyone?! Okay give up?
I ran .90 without stopping!!!!!!! That is .10 away from a mile without stopping and it is only January 13th! I still have 7 days till my goal of January 20th to be able to run a mile without stopping! I think I will make it before then! I was going to run a mile but it started to hurt so 
I decided I better back off for the evening.  But I was very proud of myself :-).

So for tonight pictures, and in light of the title of this blog are the cupcakes I made for Halloween and also the cupcakes I took to Adam's Dad's dinner party and they were a huge hit!
Here are all my supplies
Here is a close up of my cupcake wrappers 
Here are some of the decorations I used for the cupcakes :-). The spiders are my favorite!
This is what inspired some of my cupcakes :-)
Now for my "poison apple" cupcakes I used Apple Cinnamon mix and added fresh chopped apples to the mix (as seen below)
 Here is a close up of one of the wrappers so cute!
 And of the second wrapper!
Here is my awesome new cupcake container my mom bought me! I LOVE it!!
 Here are the devil's food cupcakes with buttercream frosting and decorations!

Here is an ariel shot of them all done 
Here are the "poison apple" cupcakes all ready to decorate! Now if only the caramel had stayed in its spot I am not sure how in the book they got that to work.
Okay so I was so very proud of myself for making this spider web on my cupcakes! :-) It was my favorite! Especially with the spider stake in with it!

And here are all the "poison apple" ones decorated :-)
I even had an awesome display stand to put them on :-)

Anyway, there are a lot of pics I know but still you gotta see the process :-). So those are my Halloween cupcakes.

Oh so if you are looking for something fun to read check out Confessions of a Cookbook Queen she had me laughing so hard with her post about Breaking Dawn Cake! So check her out!!
Well that is all for tonight time for bed! Still got to make lunch! Bye Bye!


  1. Those look yummy!

  2. What pretty cupcakes! My mom gave me an assortment of cupcake decorating tools for Christmas last year but I just don't have the patience for it - all I want to do it eat the cupcakes ASAP! :)

  3. Thanks! Ha ha I seem to be the opposite I love decorating them but then never really have a desire to eat them for some reason!
