If you can't make hi hat cupcakes, make not so hi hat cupcakes

That's what blogger Kita of Pass the Sushi did with these chocolate cupcakes and just look at the results! Visit her site for the recipe. Here's what she had to say about these (and she plans to try them again):
I was already dead set on this recipe before I realized I don’t own a hand mixer, and there was no was I was whisking those stiff peaks into life by hand. I whisked over heat for a while then transferred the mixture to my stand mixer with the whisk attachment. This did not result in the lasting volume that the cupcakes require and where I may have been tempted to whip out my hair spray to get these bad boys to stand up straight, they tasted too damn good to care!

Family Theme Halloween Costumes

I understand if you are a little confused.
You are probably thinking, "Um...where is the CAKE?"

Today I decided to share one of our family traditions with you.
Six years of family theme Halloween costumes!

This year we chose a Star Wars theme.
If you read my last post with the Butterscotch Bundt Cake recipe,
you already know that my oldest daughter is a huge Star Wars fan.


And here are our costumes from years past...
My secret weapon is that my mom is a fantastic seamstress,
and has spent many hours helping us make these costumes!

Alice in Wonderland (2011)
My parents even joined in on the fun!

Dr. Seuss (2010)

 Toy Story 2 (2009)

Steve Irwin & Crocodiles (2008)

The Incredibles (2007)

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at our family theme costumes.
Does your family dress up together too?
Tell me about your favorite costumes!

Happy Halloween!
