3930562108_f07c8dec17Yeah, I’m totally going to cheat and call this a VeganMofo post – even though I’m posting it November 1, it’s about yesterday. So there.

HALLOWEEN! We had a party! I made some foods! Please view many, many photos!

“Guacamoldy”! Made it in the food processor instead of mashing by hand, to make it a little bit more reminiscent of slime.

pumpkin cupcakes (and a pumpkin) – veganmofo 10

3930562108_f07c8dec17October makes me want to make truckloads of pumpkiny baked goods. I am far from alone in this, I know. Last week, I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from The Damn Tasty Guide to Vegan Baking and inexplicably failed to get a photo before they were all gone. I’d put Halloweeny sprinkles on them and everything! Happily, they were all nommed up at our pumpkin carving on Saturday…which meant we were out of homemade baked goods! Oh, darn, I had to make something new! ;)

So I made Isa’s & Terry’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and topped them with their cinnamon glaze.

I even put them in Halloween-themed cupcake liners! I know this is a silly number of photos, but they’re just so pretty. Oh, and delicious. Tiny bat-wrapped morsels of autumnal heaven.

And I finished carving one of my pumpkins! IMG_1137

Yay! I love Halloween!
