April Fools

Prank day!  Has anyone gotten fooled yet?  Fooled someone yourself?  I don’t normally take part in this holiday.  Not willingly, at least.  I appreciate pranks, but I’m just too lazy to pull them off.

And it’s too bad that I’m lazy because this day is full of scary possibilities.  Have some costume blood handy?  Fake an injury.  Know one of your friends is home alone?  Maybe a creepy stalker decides to call them from a random number.  Just use your imagination.   But be careful.  You don’t want to scare someone so badly that they have a heart attack or shoot you if you surprise them.  Use your head.

On that note, severed head pranks are good, too.

One thing I will do to celebrate is watch the 1986 horror classic April Fools Day.  I suggest you do the same.  Maybe you’ll get some good ideas for next year’s pranks.  I won’t give any of the plot away, but I will say there are some bloody shenanigans going on.

I do not recommend watching the 2008 version of April Fools Day unless you just want to waste an hour and a half of your life.

Happy April Fools Day to everyone out there!

Easy Halloween Cupcakes

Looking for an easy dessert for your Halloween party?  Look no further than the cupcake.  They’re easy to make, and with some Halloween-themed cupcake holders and a little bit of icing and candy, you can make a creepy and disgusting (looking) treat.

Check out this ghost cupcake I made with just a little bit of chocolate and vanilla icings.  All you need to do is freehand a blob.  I happened to have some Halloween sprinkles on hand, so the eyes and mouth were crazy simple.

This is also the time of year you can find some gross-looking candy, so put it to good use.  I was looking for some gummy body parts, but I happened upon some eye gum balls that I opted to use instead.

I made two different types with the eyes.  I used some food coloring to make a nasty green icing and layered that atop a dark chocolate cupcake.  Add some sprinkles and the gumball, and you’ve got a cauldron:

I also just really felt like making some edible blood, so these vanilla cupcakes turned out really nice:

The Walking Dead spoiler alert!!!  I made these in honor of fallen hero Glen’s death.  Poor guy.  I don’t know about you, but that hit me hard.

I hope you have fun with your Halloween treats!
