Happy Halloween!

As a kid, Halloween was always very exciting until about two seconds before it was time to go out trick or treating. This was because my mom would guard the door with our winter coats in hand. "You don't leave until you put this on." It's a memory shared by every child who did not grow up in the land of cacti.

Now that I live in the desert, I'm somewhat jealous of the kids who actually get to parade around in the costumes they intended to wear for the big night. Although this year, it's so hot I'm sure they could go door-to-door in their swimsuits if they really wanted. 
To console myself, I'm hoping to stop by Sprinkles to catch the last of the caramel apple cupcakes. Spiced apple cake studded with granny smith apples topped with a buttery caramel cream cheese frosting.

Eat your heart out, kids. You may be able to enjoy your costumes in all their glory, but I guarantee no one will be handing these beauties out tonight! (I'm only a little bitter, promise.)
Happy Halloween!

Those cupcakes sound delish! Why don't I get around to Sprinkles more often?

Oh, the memories! My mom actually went the route of stuffing the winter coat under our costumes...we all looked like we were wearing fat suits! Worked great for the pumpkin costume...not so great under the ballerina costume.

I hear ya, Sarah! They need to dot the Valley with Sprinkles!

Erin -- you'd think they'd come up with insulated costumes for those poor kids in the Midwest :)
