Halloween is a great time to dress up your favorite desserts. I love cupcakes, so it was only fitting to decorate those for the holiday. Did you know that McCormick makes black food coloring? Perfect to create black cats, spiders, and Black Velvet Cupcakes.
This Halloween, McCormick wants to make your holiday baking full of color, flavor, and fun with their Tricks for your Treats kit. They provide food coloring, candy, and ideas. You provide the creativity and fun.
McCormick supplied me with one of their baking kits, asking if I could review their products. Of course! I am always a fan of McCormick.
The kit includes:
– Food coloring, both assorted and black
– Vanilla extract
– Wilton cupcake liners
– Orange oven mitt
– Silicone baking sheet
– Mini spatula
– Candy corn, Tootsie Rolls, and Dots (for decoration)
– And a list of Halloween ideas
I had the toughest time trying to decide what to make. The cat cookies? The eyeball cupcakes? The vampire cupcakes? Finally I decided on Candy Corn Cupcakes, which I posted about earlier in the week. I used the assorted food coloring and candy corn to make them festive.
I also really wanted to use the black food coloring. I mean, how often do you get the chance to use it? I was debating on the black cat cookies, but while I was surfing online, I found a recipe for a black velvet trifle. I was originally going to make that, but because I had leftover icing from the other cupcakes, I decided to do Black Velvet Cupcakes.
McCormick wants to help you celebrate Halloween by sending one lucky reader her (or his) own Tricks for your Treats kit!
The giveaway is now closed. Congrats to TexasQuilter!
