CELEBRATIONS

Happy Halloween!

Halloween cupcakesAlthough it’s certainly not as big of a deal here in London compared to the U.S., it’s a big deal in our house, so we’ll be celebrating today.  We’ll head to the fancy neighborhoods of Kensington where you can find some of London’s best trick-or-treating streets. My two boys will be dressed up (the younger one as a lion, and the older one as a shark!), and I’m sure we’ll indulge in loads of sweets! Hooray!  I hope you have a Happy Halloween, wherever you are…

P.S.  I made these cupcakes this morning from my new Cupcakes! book, and they are soooo tasty!  We’re already off to a sugary start!

According to some rigorous research (ha-ha), I discovered that Halloween dates back 2000 years, to a time when the Celts lived in what is now Ireland, the UK and northern France. They celebrated their new year on Nov. 1st believeing it marked the end of the summer and the beginning of the dark, cold winter. (boo!) On Oct. 31st they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. spooky!

They look delicious! I’m glad you’re making good use of the ‘hagelslag’! (Dutch chocolate sprinkles).
Happy Halloween!
