I haven’t baked in a long time, since May 2013, I guess I’ve been to busy with moving to our new home and had no time to do any cupcakes or pop cakes or any of that stuff I love.
As Halloween is today, I thought it was a great opportunity to start baking again, I wanted to do something nice at work related to Halloween, so why not a halloween dessert table?
I started yesterday night at around 8pm and finished… mmmm …. a bit late, lets just say after midnight.. But it was worth it, because my colleagues were really happy and we could have something different at the office.
This time I decided to make some orange, lemon and chocolate cupcakes. I guess since the collors of Halloween are orange, green and black =). And I used a cream cheese buttercream for the top. As decorations, I created some pumkin figures in orange fondant and added some details in green. The results were not so amazing, since I didn’t had more time, but at least they tasted good. I also baked some popcakes, but had no time to decorate them, I guess I’ll finish them later and write a separate post about them =).
Apart from the cupcakes, I got inspiration on internet so make some spiders with mellow cakes, I thought it was an easy and cool idea so I gave it a try! I bought some mellow cakes from Milka and some gummies in black rolls, to make the legs, then I added some melted chocolate drops for the eyes and ready! really easy!

Finally I wanted to make some halloween gummies sticks, but i had not so much time, so I made only 5 =), and the rest of the candies and gummies I left them on a bowl, so everyone could serve themselves.
For the table decorations I just got some china paper in orange and purple, orange balloons and a bats black guirnalde. You can see the pictures below and let me know what do you think. Thanks for reading!!!
