Here’s another halloween treat for ya.

I know, I know, the last thing you need in your life is more junk food around the house.
-Just give them away, so someone else has to deal with mustering up the will-power.

So I made red velvet cake for the first time. I used this recipe.
I mixed the red food coloring and coco before hand and set it aside…

………..and when we added that ingredient, I told my kids it was blood. He he he.
I had Jenna and Justin believing me. Lindsey didn’t buy it though.

Of course we would use blood in spider-web cupcakes.
That’s what spiders like.

I slathered them with some cream cheese frosting (which was the best part).

Then for the web….
Let me introduce you to my little melty chocolate/ frosting bottles that look like clear ketchup bottles.
They are some of my best friends. I love them a lot.

You just draw a little web on wax paper then put em in the fridge (flat) for about 5 minutes.
They will pop off and jump right onto your cupcake. Almost.

So here they are.

The only thing missing is the spider.
That is on purpose.
I hate spiders in the most serious way.

p.s. I would like to refute my sisters comment on the pumpkin popcorn balls…
My mess was on the other counter.
