scary dollies cupcakes
Join me on Facebook :)
Yesterday my step son Daniel tried to tell my husband and I that a spider was trying to enter his car to "kill him"... I say "tried to tell" because we were laughing so hard once he mentioned the spider had murderous intentions we didn't hear the rest of the story.
For Dan, spiders are the ultimate in "creepiness"; for me it's dollies... dollies with eyes that open and close.
Near death to dead from fright?? I was seven years old and literally dying from post surgery complications. The powers to be (namely my parents) had a secret surprise for me they told me to rest and everyone left the room, including the last rights priest. I was laying in my hospital bed when a giant blinking eyed doll popped up beside me, when it spoke I started screaming. And, I screamed and screamed and screamed!!
I was lucky enough (so I was told!!) to be have visited by the famous Australian ventriloquist Ron Blaskett and his doll 'Gerry Gee'.

Today's blog post is super easy "ideas" for Halloween treats, let them be a springboard for your creations.
Simple cupcakes baked in Halloween cases are spread with frosting, sprinkled with crushed cookie crumbs then topped with moving eye baby dolls. I cut the heads off some of the dolls, melted bits, pulled off limbs to make my scary doll cupcakes.
Baby dolls from SilverCrow Creations (US)

A resin skull treat box (I got these a few years ago) holds lollies and then is topped with a simple frosted cupcake, edible glitter and bat candle. The cake is attached with a dab of melted chocolate.

I coloured the toothpick on the bat toothpick candles with food colour to match the theme.
Bat candles by Ramona Ramona, I got mine from Little Betsy Baker (AU).
Happy baking :)
