I got up around 11am and made the cupcakes and the cake for the cake pops. Then I took a shower and ran a couple of errands. When I got back home, I made the cake into balls and put them in the fridge. Then I made the icing for the cupcakes. I had to have 3 different colors: brown, white, and orange. I had some Martha Stewart cupcake stencils that I had been anxious to use. When I got them out, I noticed that they were quite a bit larger than the actual cupcake. I put the stencil on top the cupcake and poured the sanding sugar over it, and when I lifted it up you couldn't make out the image. I tried it a few more times and then I gave up. I was really disappointed cause I wanted to make super cute cupcakes. So all my cupcakes are covered in sanding sugar. Some of them I made into pumpkins.
After finishing the cupcakes, I started on the cake pops. I wanted them to look like ghosts, so I covered them in white chocolate. They didn't cover as well as I had hoped. After they dried I drew on little chocolate faces. They aren't perfect, but I think they are cute.
There was no way I had time to make the popcorn balls, so I will have to do that another time.
