Buttercream Cake Pops

I get to help with a wedding in December and the bride wants cake pops, so I thought I'd try my hand at experimenting with cake pops and buttercream ruffles.
The ruffles were a complete fail, but this is what I came up with by experimenting with other piping tips.

Easy and Inexpensive Halloween Decorations

Today I'm so excited to share with you a few quick, easy and inexpensive Halloween decorations.

First, I made these Witch Shoes from shoes I bought at a local thrift store for 25 cents!  They were a lavender color before they became witch shoes!  I didn't completely follow this tutorial from "Seeing Things That Aren't Really There", but I used it as basic instructions.   I was able to give them a little more shape with cardboard from a cereal box and masking tape.  Then once I had the shape I liked, I spray painted them black. They could probably use a little more, like a buckle or glitter from the tutorial, but this was all I had time for that day. Perhaps next year I'll make them a little more spiffy.
Our door was super easy to decorate!  Everything you see was bought at the dollar store!  Really cheap and really easy!

My next idea I got from this pin

Halloween Decorations: Glittered Pumpkins

For a family activity, we "BLINGED" out some pumpkins!
These are the foam pumpkins in the seasonal section of Wal-Mart. All we did was spray paint them pink and silver, let them dry, sprayed them with adhesive and then poured glitter all over.
That's it & we love the result!!!
