Halloween Cupcakes

Last year I randomly developed a cupcake baking hobby.  (I don't even know where these things come from...).  I had dreams of running a cupcake business from my apartment and even took some photos with hopes of using it as a "buy it" guide.

It got a little out of control and I tried adding the numbers in my head and I would have been willing to bet I made almost 1000 cupcakes altogether.

This year I've not made that many so far, but really DO want to do more.  One way I've decided to do that is bake and donate cupcakes for the SEC club at my school.  SEC stands for Social Entrepreneurship (hardest word to spell, ever) Club.  A few years ago some of my seventh graders decided they wanted to make their mark on the world and have done some incredible things so far.  Right now they are raising 4,000 USD to build a well in Africa.

My thought is I can make them cupcakes and they will sell them at school.  The kids will buy them for 3,000 Won (about 2.80 USD or so) and I ask them to sell them for as much as possible!

At first I thought I could make them every week, but I didn't know that the principal didn't want the clubs selling sweets that frequently, OOPS!  ~  so now I can only make cupcakes once a month.  waaaa.  He asked if I could make muffins once a month as well--waaa--not as beautiful or tasty, but it's ok at least they can still make a bit of money off them :)

Anyhow, my goal is to donate 1000 treats to the SEC.  So far I'm at 50. Quite a bit to go.

I made these Halloween cupcakes about a month ago and they were a huge hit apparently, they sold out in about five minute said the kids.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE FUN CUPCAKE HOLDERS, SPRINKLES AND PUMPKIN SUGAR THINGIES MOM!!  They really made these cupcakes special.  I especially loved the pumpkin  sugar thingies (what in the world are they called?).  They brought me back to my childhood.
