Halloween Skull Cupcakes

In case you ever find your self with a frosted cup cake, good & plentys, m&m's and chocolate licorice, as well as a Halloween party to attend then i have a cute little cupcake for you. Super easy too.

Didn't have time to bake from scratch, so its out of the box. But i spent time decorating so i say that makes up for it.


P.S. I did lose my camera... so all the awesome pictures of the peanut butter cupcakes are gone. :( Le sigh. That in itself might hurt more than the money i had to spend for a new one.

Magnolia Bakery Review

Two weeks ago I went to the East Coast for the first time. I was in New York City for a day and took the opportunity to go to "Magnolias Cupcakes" since they're so famous face. So we made the trek across the city (although the neighborhood was admittedly adorable so i can't complain). And waited in their huge line.

But... Why are they so famous face? I really don't get it.

My friend Rochelle and I bought one vanilla and one chocolate cupcake and split them in half.

For the record, they got MESSY when they got cut in half. Which was not too cool when they got all over our fingers. Anyhoo, back to the review of the actual cupcake. The taste. Rochelle's chocolate cupcake frosting was good. The cake tasted out of the box though. My vanilla frosting was so ridiculously sweet that i scraped 99% of it off. Pure sugar. In a bad way. But the cake it self was pretty good. So... if her frosting was on my cupcake it would have been delicious, lol!

All in all, it didn't taste terribley gourmet and mouth watering enough to pay $2.75 for it. But at least they were pretty?


P.S. I baked yesterday. But i am having camera problems. As in i can't find it... lol. So not sure when (if ever) that will be up. =x
