This weeks blog postings are going to be all about Halloween inspired cupcakes! I have an exciting giveaway to announce and some fun tutorials coming your way! So let’s dig in!
I received a McCormick Halloween Baking Kit in the mail on Friday and have been anxious to tell you guys about it since I opened it! The sweet people at McCormick wanted me to review some of their products and then give one of my lucky readers a kit of their own! Pretty cool, huh?
To be entirely honest, I have always loved McCormick food colorings and vanilla extract, so I was more than happy to review their products and share with you all. It seemed to be a great fit!
The McCormick Halloween Baking Kit came with the following items:
- McCormick Assorted Food Coloring
- McCormick Black Food Coloring
- McCormick Vanilla Extract
- Wilton Cupcake Liners
- Bright Orange Oven Mit
- Silicone Cookie Sheet
- A Mini Spatula
- A list of Halloween cupcake ideas
- And some yummy Candy Corn!
This kit has EVERYTHING you need to make some fantastic Halloween cupcakes!
My favorite is the McCormick black food coloring. It is perfect for making scary Halloween cupcakes, like spider cupcakes, tombstone cupcakes, and even vampire cupcakes! Once Halloween is over though, you can still use the black food coloring for 100’s of other cupcake ideas. I like to use the black to outline some of my cupcake designs, or use it when making little eyeballs on character cupcakes.
The best thing about the McCormick black food coloring is that it actually turns the frosting black, rather than grey. So many black food colorings turn white frosting grey when you add it. With McCormick, you only have to use a few drops and you have perfect black frosting! I love that it is hassle free.
Before I give you some more great tips on how to use McCormick food colorings – let me tell you how you can win this awesome kit!
