ghost cupcakes in fall flavors...!

ghost cupcakes

....so i guess i'm jumping ahead like all the retail stores and posting halloween treats already....well if you can't beat 'em...join 'em....right?....

....the weather is getting a little crisp here on the east coast....so you can't help but start thinking about fall and all the flavors that go along with it....i've been a pinning nut on pinterest lately (me on pinterest!)...and have been meaning to do some different fall flavor cupcakes that i have found around the blogosphere....and although i love all the traditional fall flavors....like pumpkin, apple, carrot, etc...i wanted to try different ones as well.....

....these little guys are:

ghost cupcakes in fall flavors

....and the colors are pretty much all from the veggie/fruit and/or spices used....i love the way the colors came out.....don't the colors work well for fall....and for halloween...?

....i may do some "how to" posts on some of the flavors because they are a little uncommon...but in general they are a little denser than regular boxed cake cupcakes....but very moist, and very tasty.....

...in case you are interested though...the recipes are linked for chocolate and red beet, avocado, butternut squash, and ube...(the maple cinnamon is just some left over boxed vanilla cake mix...about 3-4 cups....with about 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon added).....

...so you can really taste the flavor of the cupcake...just topped them with some good old cool whip...and then decided they looked like ghosts....so why not add some eyes and a mouth.....(made with some black candy melts)......

....and you get some little spooky ghost cupcakes in some unusual fall flavors for this halloween....!

.....oh and if you make these....i found it's better to not say what the flavors are....i took them to a family party and just said there were a bunch of flavors....then asked what kind they thought they were....some guessed wrong...but a couple guessed right....but 1 or 2 did say they would have never tried a "beet cupcake" or "avocado cupcake" had they known the flavors ahead of time....!...but it's always good to try new things right...?...except weird animal parts like gizzards and tripe and eye of newt or any of the plethora of dishes andrew zimmern seems to enjoy....no thanks, will stick to lots of sugary sweets instead...!

...thanks for stopping by and have an awesome week!
