Happy October… It’s almost Halloween!

Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful start to a new month!

October 1st is here and that means that we are full-force in Fall and that it’s almost Halloween. I love watching all of the Halloween movies they run on TV every year; who doesn’t love Hocus Pocus, am I right?! Once Halloween passes, we’re running full speed into the Holiday Season with Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s! One of my favorite things to keep busy with during the Holidays (besides reading) is BAKING!!! I’ll admit that I don’t bake from scratch, but I do enjoy using boxed mixes to make cookies, cupcakes, brownies and more.

Last night I made mini vanilla cupcakes tinted with orange food color dye, butter cream flavored frosting and orange and black sprinkles. I brought them in to share with my coworkers today and everyone loved them! Honestly, unless you’re on a diet/cleanse or allergic to gluten or dairy, it’s hard to resist cupcakes – that’s why I prefer to bake mini desserts rather than large cupcakes. I feel less guilty eating a small treat than a large one and people are more likely to indulge in something small when it comes to sweets. What’s your favorite holiday treat?
