    I made this last year for my grandson's grade 3 class. They went crazy for it. Making it again this year for grade 4 class. He helps to make the cupcakes, AND helps to decorate, so not terribly difficult. It is Halloween after all. Have fun. We have fun making AND eating. Get your children involved.
