Dim Sum Sunday ~ Creepcakes

For this week's Dim Sum Sunday, Shamu wanted us to bring out our favorite hors d'oeuvres, or special Halloween snacks. And for my little girl this means making some creepy cupcakes.


A little icing tint, an assortment of eyeballs, teeth and tongues and you've got yourself a fun time in the kitchen.

This is also a perfect rainy day activity to keep the kids busy.




For more snack fun head over to the Karmic Kitchen.

Thanks Shamu for another fun DSS!

Too fun! They came out spooktacular!!

When my kids were little I used to set up a halloween tree in the living room. Just a big old gnarly leafless branch on a stand. Then they would decorate it with handmade spooky ornaments.
We had great fun with it.

Big Shamu said...

HAHAHAHAHAHHAH! I love your Mise En Place of eyeballs and teeth. Excellent addition to Dim Sum Sunday.

Now, who baked the cupcakes and which one did you eat first?

Dani said...

FC, what a great idea! I'm so gonna do that this halloween.

Sham, I baked the cupcakes, but everything else was a group effort. John in particular showed great talent in the eyeball making. :)

Sad to say, but I had just a plain one. I grazed so much on the candies when we were decorating, that I just couldn't do any more.

Big Shamu said...

Ah yea, grazing. Known appetite spoiler world wide.
I think I'd have to snag that multi eyed cupcake. It's got my name written all over it.

I have truly enjoyed this post. The cookies are fantastic! You inspired me to read about Dim sum and Dim Sum Sunday and I found the Karmic Kitchen site. WhooHoo!

Big Shamu said...

Granny Annie, we'd love to have you join our merry band of cooking creative crazies. The next Dim Sum will be Sept. 27th. The theme will be announced in the next two weeks unless you'd like to suggest something.

Dani said...

Annie, we all bow to Sham's awesomeness. :)

How is it possible that it's already the middle of Sept? Crazy. That means the big 33 is drawing nearer... Ack!

Darla said...

My girls would love to do this. May have to borrow your little one's idea..okay?

Susan said...

tres cool & very creepy. Wow ! well done !!

lisaschaos said...

These are fun! I think she might be a month early for halloween but I'd eat them daily, lol.

Dani said...

Darla, your girls are so creative. I can't wait to see what they come up with!

Susan, we had such a great time just hanging out in the kitchen being silly!

Lisa, you and me both. :)

Big Shamu said...

I'm glad to hear you guys had a great time making these. That's what cooking is about. Having fun, learning what works and doesn't work, and getting to eat the mistakes.

Does this mean there's going to be a big Halloween Party at Casa de Butterflies and Chickens?

Dani said...

Sham, I think a Halloween party sounds great! Pumpkin carving, ghost hunts in the backyard, bobbing for apples, creepy cupcakes and other snakies. Yep, I think the kids would have a blast!

Dani said...

HAHAHHA! Casa de Butterflies and Chickens. I like it.

Dani said...

I just saw that I wrote snakies instead of snackies. *snort*

chickory said...

LaDivaCucina said...

Fabulously frightening! yay! Lovin' your creepy critter cupcakes!

Big Shamu said...

yes Dani, snakies instead of snackies means different things...especially in your house.
