Double double boil and trouble… Something yummy this way comes

Pin It!

(Gotta love Shakespeare)

Considering it’s almost Thanksgiving, I figured I’d better get my chocolate-covered butt in gear and post pictures of the cupcakes I made for Halloween. ‘Cause no one wants to see a picture of this guy come December 25th:

Sure, he’s cute and all. But he’d feel just a *tad* out of place amidst all the Frostys and Rudolphs.

(Irony of all ironies, an ex-boyfriend ate this cupcake!)

I brought these cupcakes to a wild party.

Sadly, some of the partygoers weren’t exactly lucid enough to appreciate my hard work. *Le sigh* Serves me right for taking cupcakes to a college party. Still, the cupcakes were without a doubt the most popular guests: there definitely weren’t enough to go around, and people ended up cutting them into 4ths!  (*Note: as usual, the cupcakes were vegan and 100% edible, right down to the glitter.)

The line-up:

Batting first for the Halloweenies, we have Scary Black Cat. One of my favorites… until the person who chose to eat it was another ex-boyfriend!

Personally, I think he should’ve chosen this one instead: (Just kidding; there’s no animosity between us. Thankfully, I’m still friends with most of my exes.)

Batting second: Frog&Hat. This cupcake was devoured by a giant pumpkin!

Next, we have Ghoulish Ghostie, looking quite pale. He could definitely benefit from a trip to Planet Tan.

Batting clean-up was Pluto (my all-time fave Mickey-Mouse character).
Below, another “bat”ter:

And the rest of the players:

  23. Julie says:

    They are just wonderful ! Well done ! I agree with everyone, you should open a vegan bakery ! What can I say despite the fact that I did not succeed the frosting so far with my own cupcakes. Well, obviously, I am diabetic so I cannot eat sugar, but I’m sure I’ll find a tip to succeed with agave nectar or any other natural sugar substitute.

  24. Joanna says:

    girl, you are a cupcake goddess!! i’ve never been to a college party… sigh… but i can imagine how plastered everyone was. haha if i was there, i would’ve been sober enough to tell you i love the cupcakes!!

  43. Fitnessista says:

    oh my goodness! those are SO CUTE! i think my favorite one is the candy corn one, since i’m slightly obsessed with candy corn. do you make holiday cupcakes too? a snowman one would be adorable
    have a great night! let me know when your bakery opens– i’ll be there

  45. ChocolateCoveredVegan says:

    I am so sorry I missed your comment earlier!!! I really hope you look back to see this :o/

    I usually either use frosting from VCTOTW cookbook OR I am lazy and use Pillsbury frosting (which is actually vegan!).

  47. Veggie says:

    Love the cupcakes, Happy Halloween!

  48. Tanja says:

    I know this is a very old post… but I’d simply love to know how you made the decorations… (not the frosting, but the little guys 😉 )
    Pluto is my favorite!

  49. Anonymous says:

    You should open a bakery, as everyone has said before me. lol I would definitely buy your food! I try to make them but they are probably not nearly as good.
