We have a Halloween countdown box at our house and today Ethan pulled out a note that said we get to make a special treat together. He was excited and it was so cute that he went straight to the computer for ideas. Like mother like son.
Earlier today we went to Lowe's to build these cute little monster boxes. This was Ethan's inspiration for our cupcakes.
We had so much fun making these together. Ethan was a big help. We had fun at the store trying to find ideas for this little eyeball.
We used a white chocolate Lindt truffle for the eye. We put it on a sucker stick, then used piping gel dyed blue for the iris and I painted black gel color for the pupil. This was Ethan's favorite part.
We used a star tip for the orange goblin and tip 9 for the purple guy. We found the edible eyes at Wal-Mart.
Ethan did this one all by himself. It was so cute watching him, tongue out and all. Pretty good for his first piping job ever.
I enjoy the whole process of creating yummy things, from baking and eating to everything in between. For me the presentation is the icing on the cake! I just can't get enough of homemade sweets. That is why my kitchen is decorated in the Indulge theme.
I enjoy looking online for ideas and that is part of what inspired me to start my own blog. So come indulge with me...
