So today I’m looking at more Halloween goodies, but this time in cupcake form! It’s Pillsbury’s Halloween Funfetti Cupcakes. Including the special Halloween Funfetti frosting and sprinkles. It’s frosted orange deliciousness!
Here’s the directions for you bakers at home. However, I prefer my directions. Which is three easy steps:
- 1. Get a girlfriend.
- Make sure you’ve selected a model than can cook. At the very least she needs some amateur baking skills. If you can’t find one, use your Mom.
- 2. Force her to make cupcakes.
- Gentle pleading works best, but in worst case scenarios you can persuade her threatening to buy more toys. Shame her into realizing that making cupcakes for you is the lesser of two evils.
- 3. Enjoy cupcakes.
- It’s just that simple. Nobody gets hurt (not a guarantee).
Halloween Cupcakes are best when they have fancy Halloween oriented containers. These little paper ones say “BOO!” on them and are very festive. This package also contains toothpicks with ghosts and pumpkins on them. Guaranteed to make your cupcakes go from “cool” to “way cool”.
Once your cupcakes are done cooking (GF or Mom will know this) they should be pulled out of the oven and allowed to cool for a bit. Then it’s onto the frosting!
Look, it’s orange! Sadly that’s just food coloring. It would be a billion times better if it actually tasted like orange. What’s up with that Pillsbury Doughboy? Would it have been so hard for it to have tasted like an orange?!
Once you finally have them frosted, you can take your sprinkles and sprinkle them gently on the cupcake. Look, it’s a bat!
Carefully stack them in your handy cupcake holder (not included) and admire your
Of course for the complete effect, you need to put in the festive toothpicks. Now you’re a regular Martha Stewart!
Except you have the years and experience of a Time Lord, so you let Doctor Who investigate. You must ensure that the cupcakes aren’t a clever plot by the Master to raise your cholesterol!
Oh no, Winston has spotted a ghost in the cupcakes! Blast that stinkin’ ghost!
Close enough Mr. Zeddemore, close enough.
Once the ghosts are busted, the Gallifreyans appeased, it’s time to chow down! The cupcakes taste alright, but are pretty much just plain vanilla cupcakes. The patent pending Funfetti doesn’t add much to the flavor. Oh well, it’s not the taste… It’s the journey getting there!
