To those of you who are reading this and thinking “again with alliteration??”……get over it. I love alliteration and I will probably use it. A lot.
My halloween baking and merry-making is finally over, even though it’s not Halloween yet. Don’t get me wrong, I will still be passing out candy and thoroughly enjoying all of the neighborhood kids’ costumes, but for me the hard part is over. Bittersweet. I love the creating, the baking, the decorating – but after several weeks of this nonstop baking frenzy I am happy to get back to a calmer pace. And my blog. Hopefully in a few days, I will have the next cupcake recipe baked, eaten and evaluated.
In the meantime, here are some pictures showing what I have been up to lately.
My biggest project by far was the annual Haunted House at our local youth center. It took place over the last 2 weekends and was enjoyed by everyone who attended. I dressed up as a witch and sold my cupcakes and cake pops. Here are some of the goodies
I sold the cupcakes and cake pops near the witch’s house – where else?
I gave the witch a night off every few days!
The theme of the Haunted House was scary movies – oh yeah, pretty scary!
Yesterday, after the Haunted House was over (for me anyway) – I headed over to the Joint Forces Training Base near our home and sold more cupcakes to benefit various nonprofits in our area. The airplane cookies were included in a gift basket that was raffled off:
All in all, a fun and profitable time for many deserving charities in our town. I am passionate about supporting kids and our community; hopefully, my efforts will make a small difference.
