Just when you thought the Halloween treats were over, then BAM! :) I promise to go back to just cooking soon. Seriously.
I don't buy Halloween treats for my almost 4 year old son. I never have. He gets more than enough from "trick or treating." I do bake for him though. This year I made a little something new and simple since we already had our Halloween party
Black velvet cupcakes
! Have you heard of them? Red velvet for Valentines and black velvet for Halloween. It makes sense. And black is SPOOKY! Instead of the icing in the recipe, I used my favorite cream cheese icing
. For the eyes, I used black sesame seeds. My original idea of using chocolate chips would have been too big. Poppy seeds would have been too small. Luckily, I had black sesame seeds at home as well :) It's good to be well equipped people. By the way, it took me longer to place those eyes on than it took to pipe the icing on the cupcakes. The more I bake and decorate, the more I appreciate the little details.
