My cupcake decorating experience up to now involved slathering icing on them and dousing with a few sprinkles as a kid. Therefore, I was elated that my cupcake won in the “Scariest Cupcake” category at my work’s recent Cupcake Wars.
I endured some gentle ribbing from co-workers for bringing a big bag of stuff from home for the decorating. What do you mean I’m competitive? Competitive how? Like I want to pulverize the competition?*
(I mean…*coff coff*…I simply want to be the best at what I do.)
I love food and the chance to use my hands, get messy and create something. Creating this was SO much FUN! I even grabbed some “blood” I had made for a cosplay last year and drizzled it over the graveyard for that extra touch of horror.

The winner in the “Most Creative” category:
I love how this person cut their cupcakes and stacked them to create the alien.
At home later that night, I created a cupcake decorating station for hubby with some of the left overs from work. As a consultant, he doesn’t get a chance to participate in fun activities at work, which he lamented when I messaged him that I had won. We’ve had some really rocky times in our relationship lately. I thought it would be nice to surprise him with something fun. He was surprised and touched and had a blast decorating his cupcakes. Wow, a relationship building moment over cupcakes. Sweet. Or sweets!
Decorated any cupcakes recently? Were they “scary”? Or Cake Wrecks scary? (Man, I love that site!) Feel free to share!
