Instead of coming up with some crazy new fondant creations for the top of my Halloween cupcakes. I decided this year to take on the challenge of designing a human Halloween cupcake. It was so much fun and in the end took a lot less time to make than the mermaid, octopus, 50′s waitress, Chinese girl, skunk, bee, flower, fairy, and snow princess costume, just to name a few from years past. I made them all, a tradition handed down from my mother. She was an excellent seamstress and wonderful artist who would have never dreamed you could go to the store and buy something to wear on this night of candy and parties. She blessed me with some of her endless talent and maybe cursed me. I feel her looking down on me from heaven saying, “don’t even think about it,” when my calendar is full of commitments and I pass by those costumes in the store that are getting more cute and fun every year.
