Halloween Celebrations!

Happy Halloween everyone!!

It is my absolute favorite time of year! I love the baking, the pumpkin patch, and dressing up! This past week I had 2 awesome events, a pumpkin carving party at my house & a Halloween party at my Grandma’s community. They were both SO fun! And both involve cupcakes and other equally delicious treats.

First was my pumpkin carving bash! I made a bunch of food; butternut squash soup, cornbread, spiked apple cider, marshmallow pops, cupcakes, whoopie pies, and more!


Gettin’ ready to roast some fresh butternut squash for soup. And my Dad loves to photobomb...haha.

Now on to the Halloween party!! I catered the cupcakes, of course.

It was my grandma’s party, so I figure I better start off with a picture of us! I’m Little Red for Halloween this year. Can anyone guess what Dylan is?!
