Halloween weekend is finally upon us & Buttercream Bakery is in full scary cupcake mode.
I thought I would start the Halloween weekend off with something quite tame, it's probably best to start you of gently as the horror that is to come may well leave you shaken to the very core.
Ah yes, nothing says Halloween like a mini Zombie cupcake.
Zombies aren't so scary, they move far to slowly to be a real concern and if you ask me these Zombie cupcakes are actually bloomin' adorable!
As part of the same order we also made these gruesomely gorgeous mini blood splattered cupcakes.
I am rather partial to a bit of yummy sugary blood which is lucky because I have been playing with a lot of it in recent weeks.
I have a big soft spot for Halloween, my Mum made a big thing of it when I was little, she would get us all out the house for the day and when we returned the door would be smeared with blood, the house would be dark, various evil family friends would hide in the dark spraying my siblings and I with water pistols and shuffling about, grabbing at you through the blackness. There was always a petrifying sound track and lots of screaming from us.
My mum also invents the best horror stories, absolutely terrifying! 'The Babysitter In The Fridge' will stay with me for the rest of my life.
I won't be doing much but baking cupcakes this Halloween, it is probably for the best, I actually hate being scared these days. I blame my mum, all that terror must have had some sort of lasting effect.
I have managed to avoid watching a horror movie for about six years now, I absolutely hate them! As I explained to Mr. P. the other night (for the hundredth time I might add), I won't sleep for a week, I will more than likely cry, embarrassing I know and I will point blank refuse to enter any room alone for at least a month. Just not worth it.
The last scary movie I watched was one of the early Saw films, it was awful, just awful, never again!
Mr. P. and I both agree Texas Chainsaw Massacre is by far the scariest movie ever, what do you think?
What ever you are up to this Halloween have an amazing time and I will be back next week with a full run down of all the crazy Halloween cupcakes I have made over the holiday.
