With the holiday season approaching, there are so many opportunities for fun decorative sweets.
Halloween is one of my favorites because you get to transform into something different, something from a dream or fantasy world. But people are not the only ones that get to dress up. You can dress up your cupcakes to represent something sinister as well.
Last week I was enlisted to bake for a costume party, and I knew my cupcakes needed to be in costume also.
My first thought was to do something with eyeballs or brains, but when I thought about the time constraints associated with that baking day, I decided I better go with something quicker.
I decided on to put a twist on one of my childhood favorites: Dirt cupcakes, which are chocolate cupcakes and chocolate frosting topped with Oreo crumbles and gummy worms.
WARNING: This is a rich treat and a messy decorating process.
