Ever since I purchased this cupcake stand a couple weeks ago, I have been intrigued by all things cupcakes - everything from icing nozles, to cute paper wrappers and candy sprinkles. This was my first attempt at homemade icing. I followed an extremely simple recipe for butter cream frosting, which only called for 3 ingredients: butter, confectioners sugar, and vanilla extract (and a little bit of food colouring to turn it pink). I topped them off with multi-coloured sprinkles and the end result was very birthday party worthy.
To celebrate Halloween today I am making these festive cupcakes, complete with pieces of "broken glass". I love how simple, yet intricate they look. Any other bakers preparing spooky treats today?
