Fall Cake Pop's {Part of My Costume}

I made Cake Pops. They lasted only an hour. My students loved these.
The insides are chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.

 As you can see I made a lot!

Fall Cookies {Part of My Costume}

These goodies only lasted a few hours. My college students gobbled them up in no time!
The outside layer are acorns. They were really cute!

I also made some quick mummies. They are Oreo cookies dipped in almond bark. I only dipped one side. They have mini chocolate chips for eyes. I should have purchased some edible googly eyes. I took a fork to strike lines in them.

Halloween Costume

Here I am. My apron says, "Everyone has their price, mine is chocolate."

      A Dining Room Table

      One thing I'd love to change about our house is to have a nice sized dining room. In November I like having my mom and two sister's over to decorate cookies. The last few years we've had to move the cookie decorating to my sister's house. I'd love to have a big dining room table!

      The dinning room table above is so pretty! It's the Wildon Home Westminster 7 Piece Dining Set in Cherry from CSN | Stores.

      What Am I Going to Be For Halloween?

      A baker this year! I work at an art school; Halloween is a big deal here. An excuse to make all kinds of creepy cookies and other snacks.

      I'm going to carry around a plate of cookies all day. The students can have one if they wish.

      I'll wear an apron, have my hair up in a curly cute pony tail. Easy and everyone loves to eat!

      At the end of October I'll have a lot to post on here! Spooky treats and I'll post a photo of me too. ;)

      What are you going to be for Halloween?

      One year I was Vincent van Gogh. For an art school that was pretty creative. I looked nothing like myself!
