Halloween 2011

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Its hard to believe November is already here and this year is flying by so fast!  Since the last post a lot has been happening in Tuckers Alley.  One of my photos Fall Harvest was featured on the front page of Etsy! Thanks to the beautiful treasury "When the fall comes down" by inameliart  That is a first for me and I was definitely thrilled! Very exciting ;-)

Also since then we did have a Halloween Party at our house.  Here are a few pictures from that day: 

If you like the cupcake photos then I think you would LOVE the recipe!  I found them at this website: http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2011/03/14/irish-car-bomb-cupcakes/.   I was searching for a fun treat that included alcohol.  They are not strong and they are SO perfectly moist and chocolaty.  The instructions are NOT from a box and it was fun to make them from scratch.  The actual cupcake is made with Guinness chocolate cake base and filled with a chocolate ganache which includes a small amount of Irish whiskey.  Frosting is vanilla buttercream with Baileys Irish Cream added.  Enjoy!!

Here we made some green goulish punch.  It was just a mix of Sprite, 7-UP, Ginger Ale and Lime Sherbert. We also added dry ice to get the fun foggy appearance! 

Hope you had a happy Halloween!!!
