Halloween RIP Mini-Graveyard Cupcakes

Happy Halloween!

I made these cupcakes for a Halloween bake off at work which was supposed to be on Monday.

Turns out it was cancelled, but I didn't get the message. 

But hey, who's complaining when you've got cupcakes?! :D

(Although my team did get a little suspicious when I have them cakes with 'RIP' written on them... "Xinmei, are you trying to tell us something? Have we been working you too hard?!")

Maple and Pecan Layer Cake (the rustic wobbly kind)

Did you know that it would take 11,624 pecans, stacked end to end, to reach the top of the Empire State Building? 

Did you know that it would take 144million pecans to fill an Olympic sized swimming pool??

And, did you know that it take 5,640 pecan halves to equal the weight of a standard watermelon????

No, I didn't either!

Yeah, it's a thing.
