Last minute Halloween decorating

Follow House of Hepworths on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest! Halloween is right around the corner! Seriously. It's in like 10 days. If you haven't decorated yet, here are a few ideas from my neighbors and myself that make decorating a breeze. We just moved here so I literally just threw out a few decorations and it took me like 3 seconds. Okay first up, we are a Star Wars family, so when I saw these two Star Wars Inflatables at Wal-Mart, I just had to get them. The $30 price tag seemed a lot cheaper than most inflatables so it was a no-brainer. We are officially the nerd family of … [Read more...]

Crappy Cones. Literally.

I apologize in advance if you have a sensitive stomach or are easily squeamish. But this was too gross and too awesome not to share. Last month my son T turned 10. For his birthday he wanted me to make Cupcake Cones: T decided he wanted colored cones and chocolate cake and icing. No problem. Everything went as planned and they were actually starting to look pretty cute. Until the icing. Then things went horribly wrong. Do you see what I see? Are you simultaneously laughing and throwing up in your mouth a little? Every cupcake looked like a dog … [Read more...]

Cupcake Cones: A new Petite Version

They are made the exact same way as the Original version, just bite-sized. They are great for a quick taste or for Kids! I … [Read more...]

My I-thought-I-had-an-original-idea ice cream cone cupcake pan

Don't you hate it when you get all your ice cream cones filled with batter only to have them tip over and spill in the pan when you try to put them in the oven? I decided to make a pan prototype to bake my cones in to stop the spills and mess! Yup, I made a prototype. And I was going to mass-produce it and sell it on HSN and become a billionaire, er, or at least a thousand-aire. But my dreams were crushed when I realized someone else already designed one. And it was better than mine. And they already mass-produce them. So much for my big break. BUT considering I wasted … [Read more...]

So here's how to make them: Cake mix Ingredients listed on back of cake mix box sugar cones icing sprinkles or whatever … [Read more...]
