Happy Halloween!!!

Evening All, hope you have all had nice days? Mine was a little stressful but it has been made much better by pumpkin carving and cake making. 
I thought this year I would do something a little different from the norm, and spent a while on Pinterest yesterday looking for inspiration for my pumpkin. Do you like my owl?

The Mother sent me a themed parcel this week and it had lots of different Halloween related objects in it, napkins, the paper pumpkin, the little wooden pumpkin ornament, balloons, cake sprinkles, sparkly black felt...even Daniel (The Brother) contributed to this parcel and sent me a catnip mouse!

I decided to use the innards of my pumpkin to make cupcakes!! And as far as I can tell, they have been a roaring success. It is a recipe I found on the Internet and adapted to suit my own tastes, but is essentially a spiced pumpkin cake mix with a maple syrup and cream cheese icing- plus The Mother's Halloweeny sprinkles of course! (Sprinkled on by my lovely assistant Lucy)
