I'm skyping with my family for my birthday. Its an experience. My aunt takes over 97% of the conversation. I can see my mom, gram and gramp. But its all aunt, all the time, talking. Well, plus i can see my gramp but he can't hear me anyway, his hearing is mostly gone. They have to yell. He waves. I wave.

I opened presents Mom got me a mixer!! Woo.

Its bittersweet. I wish I was there. But man. I also am glad I'm not.

I moved my plants inside, getting cold at night.

Bake sale! Its Tuesday and Thursday. I'm thinking of making 2 things for Tuesday, 2 things for Thursday.
Contenders:
- Spice cupcakes
- Apple brownies
- Stained glass halloween cut out sugar cookies
- Lemon ginger brownies
- Other cookies
- ?

Its Halloween/ Fall themed. The lemon brownies would be pushing it, but ginger is fall-y..?

Any suggestions of what to bake?

I'm all by myself and kinda sad.

Hi.

That might be good inside a chocolate cupcake, right?

The sugar cookies are a must.

Could you do cake pops in fall or Halloween themes? Or mini pies? We got mini pies at Buttermilk Sky today.

Happy birthday NL.

Mallocups look gross.

The stained glass cookies should be a definite.

Im going to do cakeballs for his class eventually. But they are so time and freezer consuming

I agree on the stained glass cookies. And the cakeballs. It's been years since I made those because they're suuuuchhh a faff.

They really are. It's two days of work. Make the cake, cool the cake, crumble the cake, glove up and mix the frosting with the cake. Shape into balls, make space in the freezer, put 2 dozen balls in the freezer. Next day, melt chocolate, take balls out a few at a time to dip and bang, dip and bang, dip and bang, for what feels like hours, and very well might be. Put on wax paper to harden. Take out toothpicks, hope they don't crack or get a dough snake. THEN decorate.
So so much time.
Delicious though. But they have to be the only thing im making when i make them.

I feel bad about the neighbors.

Any ideas how i can make these red velvet cookies more fall/halloween?

Two thoughts.

Could you use food coloring to make them black? Do the other side with orange frosting? Red velvet is really just chocolate, right?

Or you could leave it red, cover the cookie with more icing and then use additional red to make it look like blood splatter.

Using food coloring to make them black will most likely turn everyone's mouth black which, people don't tend to be a fan of.

I have a couple red velvet cake mixes im going to use for the batter, otherwise i just wouldn't put in the red dye
Blood spatter is interesting. Is it appetizing i wonder?
If i dip them in orange chocolate, and yellow chocolate, would they look fall leaves colored? Hm.
I had my HAND on autumn sprinkles, that would help, but then was like, no, i shouldn't, i have a lot of sprinkles and we are trying to save money.
But i could have used them like 5 times now
I might have colored sugar sprinkles though, in all different colors. Not as good, but might work.

I personally don't care about treats turning my mouth funny colors. LOL

The blood spatter wouldn't bother me.

If you want to be more conservative then stick with fall theme...Could you make them candy corn colors?
