For Halloween 2011, I decided to make spooky cupcakes. I added food coloring to the mix to make it swampy looking. Instead it came out a turquoise color! None the less, it was pretty :)
Also for the icing I just used the icing the pack came with, and added red to the coloring, again symbolizing blood. However off course it turned out pink!
I don't think turquoise and pink cupcakes symbolize Halloween, but they were super yummy so it definitely made up for it!
