Why I Want This: Oh my goodness, there are SO MANY Halloween cupcake toppers on eBay! And I have to admit that I love them all, but these…wow. I really like these. I want to make a lamb cake and use one of these for the face! That would be pretty creepy.

Why I Want This: So, I think what makes this cake spooky, according to the recipe, is that it’s chocolate. And I am okay with that. Halloween and chocolate totally go together.  I think a “spooky” chocolate cake is a great reason to have a Halloween party! Actually, ANY chocolate cake is an excuse to have a party.

Why I Want This: Frankfurters stuffed with peanuts, cheese and canned green beans. That is way, way, way scarier than that chocolate cake!

    Kingan’s Reliable Skinless Wieners! That gives new meaning to the word “frankenweenie.” What demented mind came up with sandwiching boiled wienies and tomato sauce inside split shredded wheat biscuits and calling them frankfurter boats? Ye gods!

    That “Weeny-Witch Party Book” is amazing! Definitely scarier recipes than the mummy dog recipes I’ve been seeing everywhere lately.
