Click it Up a Notch- October Picture Share

My favorite picture from October was actually taken yesterday while we were at Ellms Farm enjoying some outdoor time before the snow started to fall at their corn maze and pumpkin patch.

Pinterest Challenge Cupcakes

Happy Halloween everyone!

The Pinterest Challenge is back! Just in time too since I volunteered to make cupcakes for Sophie's Halloween party at school. I've been eyeing (haha!) these owl cupcakes ever since they first started popping up on Pinterest.

Aren't they adorable? They were very easy to make too which was an added bonus. I used a box mix and canned frosting, but I'm sure they would be much better from scratch. I didn't have the time so I had Betty Crocker help me out. I baked the cupcakes and let them cool. While the cupcakes were cooling, I sliced the Oreos apart with a sharp knife. I found that I couldn't twist them apart or I wouldn't get all of the frosting on one side. I loved how this version of the owl cupcake had eyebrows. I tried to cut the cookie part of the Oreos for the eyebrows, but they ended up braking instead of cutting. I found that if I scored them several times they broke where I wanted them to better.

After all the Oreo slicing, scoring, frosting, and finger licking. My owls turned out like this.

Not too shabby! I had a bunch of left over Oreo parts so I crushed them up and added some Peeps ghosts. What do you think?

Here they are all together.

Thanks Katie, Sherry, Ana and Erin for hosting this challenge! Hop on over to their sites to see all the other creative Pinterest projects that were linked to in this challenge.
