No time for Halloween hijinks this year, other than pulling together my Cleopatra look for a costume ball. If I was going to cook, here's what I'd explore:
Martha Stewart's decadent pumpkin cupcakes. Made these last year and they were gobbled in an instant.
Not Martha's delightful Crawly Cakes, made from Hostess Snack Cakes.
Sean of Hedonia's Pumpkin Butter.
And for those of you in Los Angeles in search of yummy Halloween treats, I hear the bakery Boule on La Cienega has some homemade candy corn and caramel-fleur de sel apples. Also, Koreatown gelato spot Mi Amici's serving a punchy gingerbread gelato. Enjoy!
