The Halloween bake included some cappuccino cupcakes, which were decorated for Halloween. I covered them with chocolate frosting and topped with decorations. Not really exciting decorations but I did use candy corn – a very disgusting concoction that is highly popular this time of year in the US. It was sort of funny – I brought the leftover candy corn and little pumpkin-shaped candies made of the same gross materials designed to be a kind of corn syrup marshmallowy thing to work, thinking no one would be interested in this disgustingness. But an American colleague was so excited that she wished I had an even bigger secret stash of the stuff somewhere else.
