Victorian Halloween cupcake ornaments












I'm mad about this new line of baking mixes by Cherrybrook Kitchen! I used the yellow cake mix and the chocolate frosting for my cupcakes. I made up a plain butter cream according to the Confectioners Sugar box for the orange squiggle pumpkin innards on the top. They taste amazing!
I used the Ateco decorating tip with all of the little holes in it for the wormy squiggles. I'd like to say my 5 year old helped me decorate, but I did that not so perfect job all by myself! Well, they are especially fun with the ornaments I made. I used pictures I cut from The Somerset Magazine Halloween issue and Fellowes laminate pouches from Staples. This way you can just wipe them clean with a damp cloth and save them for next year. That fab dish towel is from Jennifer Paganellis new line. Illustrated art work by: Kersten Christianson, Janie Mattern, Heather Sleightholm, Erin Perry,Chris Raissis, Iva Wilcox and others.
