There is one more day until Halloween and I probably should have posted these recipes earlier. If you're having a party and need some food ideas, I have a few delicious recipes for you.

For my work, I made zombie cupcakes. I bought the zombie kit a Jo-Ann's Fabric for half price. I was going to make the cake from scratch, but the cake mix was on sale for $1 (it was Halloween cake mix). However, if you'd like to make the cake from scratch:

1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch pan or three 8 or 9 inch round layer cake pans. Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth and fluffy. Mix in the vanilla extract. Separate the eggs and set the egg whites aside. Add the egg yolks one at a time to the creamed mixture, beating after each one. Measure the baking powder into the flour, sift a little of the flour into the creamed mixture. Continue adding the flour and the milk alternately, while continually beating the mixture. Beat the cake batter until a few air bubbles show. Beat the 4 egg whites with a dash of salt until stiff. Gently fold egg whites into the batter. Pour batter into prepared pan(s). Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until cake(s) test done, approximately 25 to 35 minutes.

I made the icing myself and it was simple (I like the taste of homemade icing):

Butter Cream Icing

1 cup of butter
2-3 cups of confectioner sugar
2-3 tsp. of milk, but if you need more, add it!
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Beat the butter, sugar, milk and vanilla until creamy. I added red food colouring; if you'd like to add food colouring, add as many drops as you'd like! Enjoy!



Last week, mom, dad and I went to a Halloween party at my mom's friend's house. Mom made a Cheshire Cat cheese ball. Mom found the recipe through Better Homes and Garden: Cheshire Cat Cheese Ball

I am lactose intolerant and can't eat much dairy. However, the little bit I tried after she mixed it didn't seem too bad. Everyone raved about it at the party.

Thank you! Happy Halloween! I think when I get home from work today, I might make some more frightful things before the trick-or-treaters come.
