Read on for Sharon’s last-minute decorating ideas and advice!
This post is for all you procrastinators out there. And I say this with the utmost love and respect. For I am a champion, card carrying, flag waving procrastinator. I feel your pain. You had all these great delusions of grandeur of all the amazing treats you were going to make for Halloween. Maybe a haunted gingerbread house. Or a topsy-turvy Tim Burton style. Or a batch of fabulously custom decorated cookies. You had it all planned in your head. You laid awake at night with excitement thinking of the joy you were going to experience while creating your incredible Halloween confections.
And here we are, just a few days before Halloween and… nothing… nada… crickets. Where did the time go? What will we do? The kids are looking up at you with those sad longing eyes, asking what you will be making for their class or neighborhood party. Crikey! Why did we wait so long? Your heart starts to race; sweat forms on your brow; the room is going white. Pure unadulterated panic.
Raise your hand if you are with me so far. I have been in this situation more times than I count. Well, have no fear. Queen Procrastinator is here to help you.
So let me share with you these super duper easy Halloween cupcakes that you can whip out in no time, but still impress even the most discerning goblins and ghouls.
White chocolate covered pretzels
After you pipe your icing swirl, just stick the sucker stuck in and lay the arm bones into the holes of the upper rib cage pretzel. Done. Fast. Easy. Cute. (I must give credit to Woman’s Day for this idea. I saw it online and copied it.)
