I can remember when my sons were small (alright I will admit that was some time ago, as my oldest in 30) I would make cupcakes for them to take to school for special occasions like the Halloween party, Christmas, Valentines Day etc. They were always chocolate cake with vanilla icing coated with sprinkles of a colour or colours for the theme of the day. I was always busy with three boys and a full time job but the guys always wanted to take the cupcakes to school. I just remembered the my middle son STILL has me make red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing for his companies United Way bake sale fundraiser every fall.
Today is my grand daughter's 10th birthday, and guess what, Gramma can you make cupcakes (the Halloween ones with the skeletons where a huge hit). Yesterday I make cupcakes. Cupcakes have become a bug deal of late and have become rather festive. I got an idea for these online. I think they will be a massive hit.
