Last week was the first week in October, which for me usually means everything I do starts to center around Halloween festivities. I am making costumes, planning parties and of course, baking as many Halloween desserts as possible. I REALLY REALLY love Halloween.
But last week was different. I couldn't bring myself to get excited about any of it.
This blog is supposed to make people happy. It is about sprinkles, cookies and cupcakes and is filled with so many bright colors. But how could I write about anything remotely happy when so many terrible things were happening in the world?
Hurricanes and fires are destroying people's lives, my best friend's father passed away unexpectedly, and Vegas.
Last week I spent a lot of time just staring at my computer trying to write this post. I couldn't come up with anything. And then I spent even more time under the covers trying to process what was happening. Long story short, it wasn't a great week.
But this week I decided that no matter how much shit was going on in the world, no good can come from staying in bed. So I got up and made some doughnuts - really really cute monster doughnuts. These are super fun to make, and if you are making them with kids, it is the perfect way for them to get creative. My favorite decorating tool for these guys is this Grass Tip. It makes for the perfect "hairy" monster!
