Halloween Treat: Ghost Cupcakes ♥

Hello everybody!

Hope you're doing well (and that you're still not totally bored with my posting...). Today has been an eventful day and I've got quite a lot done. Tomorrow, I will put up our little Halloween decorations and later on I will show them to you. They're nothing much, but something fun for the weekend, at least.

However, like I promised earlier today, I wanted to share these super cute Halloween treats with you! If I could, I would hand these out through the screen for you all. They're that good.

Like you guys might know, I've been on gluten free diet since summer, as I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Sounds scary, I know, but it's nothing major. I just have to eat right and I feel well. Easy-peasy. With that change, however, I need to keep looking my baking a bit differently. I need to work with new ingredients and some of them work slightly differently than the ones I had been used to.

But I figured that if I find a fool-proof (or at least surely good) recipe I could actually modify it for my diet. So I took a cupcake recipe from Martha Stewart (click here to see the recipe) and switched the flour to gluten free flour mix and rice flour, and added some psyllium fiber to make the texture better. And, I must say, it went pretty well. Taken that this was my first time making cupcakes since my diagnose.

When it comes to the appearance, I can say I'm not Martha Stewart, nor Bree van de Kamp, but these still came out pretty decent. The eyes are simply painted with gel food color, but the seeds that the recipe called for would have been more fun. These are so delicious with all the chocolate goodness going on and the little marshmallows inside, that you can't really eat more than one at a time. Or per day, for that matter.

I still have one more recipe to go this week, as well as one costume idea, before I show bits and pieces of our low-key Halloween. Then you can say goodbye for Halloween posts for a year, but I promise, I have fun stuff even after this. Just in more sensible posting schedule.

But let me know what you think about these goodies, and what you will maybe bake for Halloween, in the comments below!

I'm heading to bed now, but I will talk to you very, very soon ♥

Have an awesome day guys!
