Zombie Cupcakes!

Happy Halloween!
I have to admit I don’t really do much to celebrate Halloween- other than just making sure I have plenty of sweets in for the trick or treaters! It’s not that I’m miserable but it was never a big holiday when I was growing up – my family and most of the UK celebrated Guy Fawkes Night on 5th November more (I’ll do a post on that on Friday as it’s actually a strange celebration when you try to explain it to people who aren’t British!).
Anyway, as the blogosphere is alight with vampires, zombies, witches and werewolves today, I thought I’d do something a little different – zombie cupcakes! Well, actually just pictures of zombie cupcakes. J I found this fantastic little book last weekend that shows you how to turn yummy cupcakes into yummy, ghoulish cupcakes by adding a grave, an eyeball, brains or blood to them – not real ones I hasten to add, but decoration. I couldn’t resist and bought the book straight away. I’m not much of a baker but I have a friend who can make the beautiful cakes so I’ve sent the book to her hoping she can make use of it. But before I did I took a few sneaky snaps of some of the lovely (!) looking cakes – have a look at some of my favourites –

So what’s your favourite Halloween recipe? Is there something special you make for this time of year?
