A Halloween cakewalk always needs some good cupcakes! While we would all love to have all the time to bake fresh homemade cupcakes, we know that it doesn’t usually happen. This year go buy those easy store bought cupcakes, and with a few good tricks, dress them up to be the hit of the cakewalk!

Directions: First, print out the spider web template. Tape some parchment paper over the top of the template. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave by heating it in 30 second intervals. Place the melted white chocolate in a pastry bag. Snip off the end of the pastry bag. Try to make a very small hole. Use the template as a loose guide for your spider webs. Loosely drizzle the white chocolate in the spider web shape. Don’t try to make it perfect, it needs to be a loose flowing web.

Let the white chocolate set up by placing it in the fridge for a few minutes. Once your chocolate has set up, gently pick one up off of the parchment paper and place into your cupcake. Place a spider in front of the white chocolate web. Place the cupcake inside a black and white chevron cupcake liner.

I absolutely love candy capsules! If there is ever a reason to use them, I do. So, for Halloween, it was only natural to make a candy capsule pumpkin.

While these are really easy to make, the results are adorable and will leave everyone excited to break open their pumpkin.

To make a Pumpkin Capsule you will need:
Orange capsules
Green pipe cleaner
Glue gun
Autumn colored candy – I used Reese’s Pieces

pumpkin-capsule-3

Directions: First, take approximately a 1 inch piece of green pipe cleaner. Fold the pipe cleaner in half and twist it together. Next, use the glue gun and glue the twisted pipe cleaner to the top of the capsule. Be sure to glue the ends of the pipe cleaner down, leaving the folded end sticking up. Once the glue is dry, fill the capsule with the Autumn colored candy and close the capsule.

While I call these pumpkin cupcakes, it’s all in the decorations. Make these cute cupcakes using your favorite store bought chocolate cupcakes. I used these adorable cupcakes for our Little Pumpkin Birthday Party, but they would also work perfectly for a Halloween cake walk.

You Will Need:
Cupcakes
Knife
Orange sanding sugar
Orange cupcake liners
Green Sour Punch straws

pumpkin-cupcakes-3

First, use the knife to smooth the frosting on your cupcake. It doesn’t need to be super smooth, just try to make the best dome shape possible. Next, place the orange sanding sugar in a small bowl. Dip the cupcake in the sanding sugar, getting sugar all the way around the frosting. Cut a 1-1/2 inch piece of a green Sour Punch straw. Place the Sour Punch straw piece in the top of your cupcake. Place the cupcake in an orange cupcake liner.

Sometimes it is really hard to come up with a birthday party theme close to the holidays. While I love Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, they aren’t birthday party material. But, then it is also hard to have a party that isn’t related to the holidays at all. The solution? Pick something with a seasonal theme.

The perfect theme for a autumn baby shower or first birthday party is a Little Pumpkin Party! Cute little pumpkins aren’t always available year round, so this is perfect time to use them as props for a party.

To keep the party a little lighter and soft, use mint green and yellow mixed in with the pumpkin orange. I love how the mint green paper straws look with the milk bottles.

To make the food wrap, just print and cut the printable. Tape the food wrap into a cylinder shape. Place a cupcake liner inside and fill with food.

It’s the perfect time of year for a Mad Scientist Party. This theme can be used as an autumn birthday party, or as a friend’s Halloween party. Either way, it’s full of fun.

To start, pass out the free printable Mad Scientist Party Invitation (download below) along with a few test tubes full of small candy such as rock candy, nerds, or pop rocks.

You can purchase the test tubes, test tube holders, and medical flasks on Amazon. Since that is the bulk of the party decorations, it makes the party easy and fast.

To finish up the party decorations, I printed out the free printable Periodic Table of Mad Science (see download below). While loosely based on the real periodic table, this periodic table includes some more exciting elements such as Bat Juice, Full Moon, and Witch Broom.
