I made these for Halloween last year, my attempt to get into the holiday spirit. My youngest son, who will be 4 soon, just loves Halloween. He also has a major sweet tooth so when he figured out we go door to door to collect the sweet stuff, he was thrilled. He pretty much asks about Halloween all year long. I never felt that way about Halloween though, maybe it’s because I was never too into dressing up, or by the time I had kids they were always sick in October.

Forgive me for bragging a bit, but if you love cupcakes as much as I do (and I’m pretty sure you do) then you’ll see why this is a big deal. As you might know if you’ve been reading my blog, my sister and I have an Etsy shop in which we sell custom-made cupcake toppers and wrappers. The scrumptiously amazing blog, Cupcakes Take The Cake, featured our Halloween cupcake toppers and wrappers in one of their posts this week! They are absolute authorities on cupcakes, and have even been on the Martha Stewart Show. This is what they had to say about us: “These creepy cobweb, grinning jack o’lantern, spooky black cat and bat cupcake toppers are for sale on Etsy by Frost and Fete, 6 wrappers for $10. Fun!” If you want to see what else we’ve been up to, check out our Etsy page.
