Halloween Ideas : Pumpkin Party Cooler

: Pumpkin Party Cooler :

Isn't that a great idea for storing your Halloween drinks?  I love Halloween.  It is my absolute favorite holiday.  I think this could also be awesome if you paint the pumpkin black or lightly carve the pumpkin (not all the way through)  Anyways, for the details of this project you will have to go here:


...yes... that does say Martha Stewart.  Problem?? You have to give her credit, she does seem to have an idea for everything.   Somewhere on that site I am sure I have seen something on making your own halloween labels for things like bottles that could go well here too... The sky is really the limit.  Oh, and there is a tutorial on making a pumpkin into the candy bowl too.

I know this is not a recipe, but hey, everyone can use a good idea to display the wonderful baked goods you bring into the world, so why not save money buying expensive cake and cupcake stands when display ideas are all around you.  Here is a post at www.howdoesshe.com that gives great ideas on making your own easy to assemble and disassemble cupcake stand, which also looks impressive.  Once you get the idea, you will see displays all around you, I know I did...

Spice age chart

I believe this image came from the McCormick website, it has been a while, but it seems like a good thing to remember. There are tips on using spices at the website too.

vodka-soaked gummie candies

I think I just fell in love.  I just found a website that has an article on making vodka-soaked gummie candies.  I think this may be my next move to try instead of an other batch of jello shooters, although they will always have a place in my heart.  Find out how to do this for yourself right here :


The website is That's so Michelle so that you can check out all her other great stuff... including awesome jello shot recipes too!

Amazing jello shot tips

I found the most amazing website ever for helping create amazing jello shots! 

They have sections on everything from recipes to presentation, and even floating things like gummie bears in them... although that may be a choke hazard for already inebriated people... but it looks neat.  If you have party plans in your future this seems like a good place to start.

Coca Cola Cupcakes

I found this little gem of a recipe quite a while ago, but thought it seemed like a good time to post a link to it. 

Coca-Cola Cupcakes.  Yeah, I may not drink that much pop anymore, but my loyalty has always remained with coke.  The recipe for these cupcakes is found here at 52 Cupcakes and Layla

Be sure to check out the rest of the site as well, there is nothing like a good cupcake after all.
