Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love your recipes for Halloween. I love your recipes for Halloween. Last Halloween I made your spider cupcakes for my grandson and his class. We went to the pumpkin patch on a field trip and I had my grandson hand them out at lunch. They disappeared. His teacher thought they were great. Again thank you for all your wonderful recipes and ideas.
