I was the happy recipient of these wonderful baking goodies from Mary's giveaway from Home is Where the Boat is.What wonderful treats were packed inside the box....a baking mat, a trick or treat spatula, cupcake liners and toppers, sprinkles, colored sugar, and a sweet note card from Mary. Thank you so much, Mary!
I had to fix my Halloween tea inside today, for we are getting much needed rain here in Texas. How about joining me and my friendly witch for some yummy cupcakes?
Recently Mary showed us how to make a flower topped pumpkin without hollowing out the inside. You can buy floral foam in a double pack at the Dollar Tree, soak it and place it on top of the stem. You can check out Mary's tutorial here.
Here's the pumpkin topped with floral foam, ready to have a blooming topper.
I bought a $3.99 bunch of flowers from Trader Joe's and went to work. I also added some extra stems, coleus and blackfoot daisies from my yard. I love how it turned out!
I followed Mary's directions for Halloween Oreo Surprise Inside Cupcakes. I then decorated them with the fun sprinkles that I won.
I also followed Mary's directions for making witch shoes sticking out of the cupcake. The straws are from the Dollar Spot at Target and the shoes are made from Tootsie Rolls.
The five of my seven grands had fun at Nana's Cooking Camp with all the baking goodies. Please go visit Mary at Home Is Where The Boat Is and you'll be inspired by her beautiful tablescapes, creativity, and the cutest potting shed that she decorates seasonally, and be sure to tell her "hi"!
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
