I made Owl Cupcakes and Mummy Cupcakes for the cake walk. You can read about how to make the Owl Cupcakes HERE.
The Mummy Cupcakes were easy to decorate. I started with chocolate cupcakes. I put a little squirt of buttercream icing on the cupcakes and stuck an m&m candy on it to make the eyes.
Then I used a flat tip on a decorating bag filled with buttercream icing . . .
to squirt the mummy's "wrap" across the cupcake leaving a space for the mouth and not covering the "eyes".
At this point, the recipe (which you can click HERE for the recipe) says to use black gel icing to make a dot on the mummy's eyes. My grocery had every color but black! :)
Oh well. No biggie! Mummies are dead anyway. Why do they need a pupil? I made 18 Mummy cupcakes. And then I decorated the remaining 12 cupcakes with buttercream icing and sprinkles.
Shane had a great time at the carnival. He won two toys at the Toy Walk, not to mention all the other prizes he won at the duck pond . . . or dry duck pond . . .
At the Feed the Elephant booth . . .
and at the Go Fish booth . . .
There were other carnival booths, but these were the only ones I got to see Shane play because I needed to help at the cake walk. Nana (my mother) and Aunt Carolyn walked Shane around the carnival while I worked my shift.
We had a lot of fun at the Carnival, but it sure was nice when we finally got back to the comfort of our home . . .
Only two more days of October and Halloween fun for . . .
the Ferrell boys and me!
