Let me start by saying that I hate spiders.
Really really hate.
Yet for Halloween, I find myself making edible spiders, of all things. (It’s not the first time…)
I can’t even imagine eating one, even if it’s made out of fondant.
But no one else had a problem eating them…
I also made some Frankenstein heads, per my 6-year-old’s request.
Then there were these:
Apparently, they were a hit. The kids were fighting over what letters to eat!
I also made a brownie pizza the week before Halloween, and my family loved it so much that they asked me to make another to bring to a party on Halloween:
I thought the Halloween Oreos would be “pepperoni” on the pizza.
I was so clever, wasn’t I?
But when no one mentioned it, I had to tell them it was pepperoni.
That’s when my 6-year-old said, “Oooh, I love pepperoni!”
He then proceeded to eat one, and exclaim in surprise, “Oh, it’s not pepperoni, it’s a cookie!”
I looked at him in disbelief.
He gave me a blank stare, and then kept eating.
Yeah, I have no idea what that was about…
And finally, I made my usual sugar cookies.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Sorry I’m a day late, but it’s been crazy.
I always make desserts for Halloween, and this year, I was talked into making several– and double for 2 different parties.
I thought it was ok, until I was up until 1:30am the night before finishing them up.
And up at 4:30am taking frosting out of the fridge and mixing it.
And then up at 6am decorating cupcakes for the first party.
And… well, you get the point. 🙂
