This can be lots of fun particularly if you use a little bit of creativity with it. For Halloween twelve months my son's teacher needed a volunteer to be a space Mother to herald treats and pass them on your day from the party. I volunteered generating cupcakes...it was not anything fancy, however it meant a great deal to my son!
It'd be the best time ever, passing the cupcakes to the kids. Following the cupcakes.The children colored pumpkins on some poster board paper. They used glitter glue, buttons, and yarn to be seen their drawings up. I recall walking along the rows encouraging each child with their project. It helped me feel really good inside being a section of the festivities on that day.
Here are some Halloween recipes for room Mothers to use and produce directly into their child's school
Candy Corn Cupcakes
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup water
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 ounces melted unsweetened baking chocolate
Halloween paper liners (buy them with a party supply store)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.
Combine all ingredients into mixing bowl. Mix at low speed for Thirty seconds, and scrape bowl. Mix at high speed for 3 minutes.
Fill liners 1/2 to 2/3 filled with batter. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center arrives clean.
Cool 10 mins in pans then remove from pan, and set on wire racks to cool completely.
Frost when chocolate cupcakes are totally cool.

Biscuit Doughnut Treats
1 can of commercially made biscuits
Deep fryer (sauce pan will act as well)
Pour vegetable oil in deep fryer. Plug deep fryer directly into heat.
Find a small glass or something like that to cut the biscuits into doughnuts. Don't discard the holes.
Place 2 doughnuts into fryer at the same time. Let brown somewhere then flip them over. Deep fry until golden. Place doughnuts onto paper towel-lined plate to drain access oil. Deep fry all of those other doughnuts including the doughnut holes.
When cooled, top doughnuts and holes with chocolate frosting. Top with orange sprinkles.
Black Forest Twinkie Delights
Empty food coloring bottle
Red, blue, and yellow food coloring
Add 1 / 3rd of a bottle equal elements of red, blue and yellow food coloring to the empty bottle...in that order. Secure the lid about the bottle. Shake the black food coloring vigorously so it is mixed. Test the food coloring by placing a handful of drops in to a little bit of white frosting.
Mix the black food coloring in to the white frosting thoroughly. If the food coloring just isn't as dark as you like it, give a bit more red food coloring to the mixture.
Top the twinkies with the black frosting. Top with orange sprinkles.
