Halloween Activities | Smores Cupcakes, DIY Photobooth (...)

Dear fellow bloggers / readers,

Halloween is in 2 days! Here are some easy and fun last minute ways to celebrate this spooky holiday with friends and family!

Idea #1 | Carve Pumpkins

Yes, I know - how typical. But what's Halloween without carving cool and creative designs onto Pumpkins? It provides great Halloween decor for your house aswell as a fun time carving them with your friends. 

Compete to see who comes up with the best carved Pumpkin, and make it even more competitive by timing yourselves!
Get your carving kit and Pumpkin 
Draw a design with a sharpie




And carve!
What my friends and I created

Idea #2 | Halloween PhotoBooth

Photobooth's are a fun way to capture silly moments with your friends...however renting one can be expensive. So make your own! 


Buy affordable little Halloween decor from any store selling Halloween goodies and come up with a creative backdrop


And have fun! Get some fun PhotoBooth Props
 (which aren't too expensive either - or make your own with some straw, card and felt-tips!)

Idea #3 | Make Cupcakes! 

So we didn't really make Halloween-themed cupcakes but we made wintery-themed ones haha - Smores Cupcakes. Here's the method and recipe! 

BISCUIT CRUST 


Crush any biscuits of your choice into crumbs ( 9-10 good sized biscuits ) 


Melt some butter ( 5 tablespoons )


Mix!


Separate and flatten out the crumb mixture into each compartment of the cupcake baking tray. And bake at 350F for 5 minutes. 

CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE BATTER


All purpose flour - 1 3/4 cups
Granulated Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Buttermilk - 1 cup
Baking Soda - 2 tsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Vanilla - 1 tbsp
Cocoa Powder - 3/4 cup
Black Coffee - 1 cup
Eggs - 2

Mix all those ingredients into one large bowl 


Then pour the Chocolate Cupcake Batter into the compartments, ontop of the baked Biscuit Crust


We had some extra batter left over but no biscuits haha


Preheat your oven to 350F and bake your smores cupcakes 20 minutes. You may need to keep them in longer, so check them if you do so 
(Insert a toothpick in cupcake - if if comes out dry, it's cooked)


Top with a marshmallow/meringue frosting (after the cupcakes cool down)


And voila! Deliciousness.
