Day 297 - No One Wants to Be Buried Alive, Even Cupcakes.
Hello Halloween party goers. The ghoulish festivities are a little more than a week away. Some of us might be attending or throwing a Halloween party soon. If you are anything like me, I never know what to bring to a party. I always want it to be over-the-top fabulous but I usually end up in the kitchen hating myself for volunteer to bring an 7 course dessert menu complete with hand rolled pirouette cookies. In short, I get a little over zealous with perfection.
Being perfect can feel like burring yourself alive. One can just keep digging into expectations so grand the only way to dig out is to succumb to defeat. Today's project is to create something imperfect and creepy in the kitchen. Go ahead and buy the grocery store cupcakes or cake mix and just jazz them up with some cookie crumbs. Pick up a package of hot dogs and make them look like gross bloody fingers. Dump a bottle of juice in a punch bowl and call it a party. Create perfection from less expectations.
In the spirit of being buried alive, I bought some cupcakes, frosted them, thew on cookie crumbs and dropped on a gummy eyeball. Creepy and easy. Nothing buried alive over here and no tears in the kitchen when the witch cauldron soufflé didn't rise in the oven.
In short, just enjoy the Halloween party and see you tomorrow party zombies!
