Day 232: Mini Pumpkin Cakes

Yesterday it seems that I said "Day 131" in the title. Oops, thankfully I noticed, and changed it. I guess I've lost track of days. I have been baking for a while, after all. ;)

Today I made these mini pumpkin cakes, that look like pumpkins and ghosts!

I just got a Halloween themed cake pan, from a friend, and I love it so much! Aren't they cute? Halloween's so close, and I can't wait! It's just this Saturday!

I also made some ghosts, and dipped them in a glaze. If you don't have this cake pan, you can use this recipe for mini bundt cakes, or even a single layered cake!

I glazed my ghosts with a yummy cream cheese glaze. It’s done in two minutes and adds a great flavor. I like to glaze my ghost and little sprinkles as the eyes.

Add ¼ cup sprinkles to my batter but that’s completely optional. You see, I purchased to many Halloween themed sprinkles, so I’m using all of them in any kind of way I can imagine.
