Halloween cupcakes: The first batch

These were harder to do than they looked!

But tasty, too. My fingers are all multicolored and smudged from where the icing melted a bit there.

Anyway, as promised back here, with the Mandala O' Candy (sounds like a porn name) I have now designed several cupcakes for tomorrow's gathering. (The big gathering remains on Saturday.)

To wit:

Some ideas worked better than others; I really like the little ghost-with horns on this last photo (you can't see it at the right angle) but once I put the tupperware lid on the top, he got squashed. And I have no idea how any of these will travel tomorrow from work and then to Brooklyn. We shall see.

Credit where it's due: Much inspiration (and candy ideas) from here. I hope to make the little Frankensteins at the bottom of the page with fondant later, but I don't know if that'll work….

Happy Halloween, all! And happy birthday, mom and Ben!

    I wish I had the energy to do these – the eyeball ones would have been a HUGE hit at work! (we make eye surgery devices)

    Those are fun!  I like the one that’s green and looks like it has a million eyes.

    Happy Halloween!

    That does seem to be a favorite! Though based on your icon, I can see why! Thanks!

    Those look great! They must have been a LOT of work.

    But FUN a lot of work as opposed to WORK a lot of work.

    Making more for another party this weekend. Stay tuned….
