Happy Haunted Humpday and Happy September too! Does it feel like Autumn where you are? My son headed back to school yesterday. Senior year! I still can't believe it.
It doesn't quite look like fall here yet unless you go into the shops. One of my favorite things at the end of summer is when the Halloween magazine issues come out. Target had several out including Martha Stewart's new one. I used to buy as many Halloween issues as I could several years ago but I eventually realized a lot of them tend to recycle the same thing over and over again. So I usually narrow it down to 1 or 2 each year but I still love seeing them on the stands and I'll go through all of them before the season's done.
I have a major sweet tooth and I have pretty much zero will power when it comes to cupcakes and cake. I started out looking for a spooky cake recipe to share but then I kept finding images of all these amazing Halloween cakes.
They're works of art I think. Some of these look like wedding cakes but they would be amazing for any Halloween party.
How cute and clever is this one?
Look at this amazing Corpse Bride themed cake!
I think it would make a great hat too.
Here's another one. Love the purple and black.
How about this Day of the Dead cake? I love the white sugar skulls against the red. I can also see a mini cupcake version of this one.
Love this haunted house. I'm not sure who did this but it has a very Martha Stewart look to it.
I did find a cake recipe that sounds like it might be fun to try.
Hershey's has this Black Magic cake recipe on their site. It's super simple and would be great for cupcakes too. You can check out the recipe HERE
I hope the cakes inspired you a little bit. I know I'm ready for a bite of one so I think I might just have to go to the bakery and treat myself to a slice.
