I have an October birthday at my house, and it makes for some fun, festive parties! Thought I would share a few ideas from the "spooky" feast...
I was pretty busy with party preparations, so I needed a fast and easy recipe for cupcakes. This was perfect. I didn't have a spice cake mix, so I used yellow cake mix, and added pumpkin spice.
Quick and Easy Pumpkin Cupcakes (verybestbaking.com)
1 package of spice cake mix
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree
3 large eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup water
*Cream cheese frosting
Mix all ingredients for about 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins. Bake 350 for 18-23 minutes (I would recommend at least 25.)
*Hot-dogs wrapped in pizza or crescent dough. Use ketchup for the eye, although most of the kids had them eaten before we got to that part. :)
Bloody Spider Bath
Red Jello and plastic spider rings. This was a favorite! (I was happy because this was one I cam up with on my own. :)
