Halloween is one of my favorite holidays- you want to know why? It’s one of the sweetest! Candy? Treats? Pumpkin desserts? Yes, please! Just last week we had so much fun decorating our store with festive banners, sassy signs, and lots and lots of Halloween goodies. What a delicious holiday.
You should, of course, order our fantastic already-decorated Halloween treats (we ship nationwide!) but if you are a hard core do-it-yourselfer like me, you’ll want to add a little something extra. One of my favorite ways to do so is to add tags! We do this all the time at Sweet E’s- one little printed circle can take an adorable sweet from super to absolutely stupendous. From favorable to fabulous. From wow to holy cow! You get the idea. These little tags are powerful.
>Aren’t they adorable? You see how the borders look like they’re covered in sprinkles? I was inspired by our amazing Halloween cookies!<
What You’ll Need:
Our Sweet E’s Halloween Tag Printable printed onto an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of card stock (click the link to open up a PDF for easy printing)
A 1″ hole-punch or scissors
What to Do:
1. Cut out your tags with the hole-punch or scissors.
2. Tape each circle to a toothpick. (I used a small piece across the back.)
3. Insert the bottom of the toothpick into the middle of a cupcake.
We also love attaching the tags to our cake pops! We use a glue gun for extra holding power, but you can also use clear tape.
That’s all from me with this week’s Delectable DIY. Stay tuned for more Halloween fabulousness from Sweet E’s Bake Shop!
As the owner of Sweet E’s I am amazed every day at the incredible work that comes out of our kitchen. I am so excited to be able to share some of my favorite orders with you! We have had the great pleasure of making some really cool cakes. Here are some of my favorites.
It’s not every day that we get asked to create a 28 foot long lasagna cake for the grand opening of the Santa Monica Place Mall. I am a major pasta person so when designing this cake I pictured a mouth watering, super cheesy, piping hot lasanga!
This 5 foot train cake was so much fun to create! What’s better then a train that’s transporting chocolate rocks, cake pops, & chocolate covered oreos. Now that is my kind of transportation.
I surprised my husband at our wedding rehearsal dinner with this Groom’s cake. This life size replica of our dogs Cody & Luna was truly a masterpiece! And Cody is still eating my shoes.
This was a cake that we designed for our new store called Dessert. I don’t think we could have created a cake more fitting.
I know we have posted this cake a bunch already, but it’s worth spotlighting one more time. This is the cake we made for Fergie’s baby shower. For sure the coolest topsy turvey cake we have done to date!

Okay, okay so it’s almost October everyone has already been in school for a month or so. But what can I say? I’ve always been a fan of the snooze button. Which is why getting back in the school groove was always a bit of an adjustment for me. So! Here I am with some ideas on how to ease back into the scholarly season. Or at least make it more fun. First thing is first: TREATS.
Need a teacher gift? Planning a study party? Or maybe you want to do something nice for yourself because you made it to all your classes on time today. Whatever the reason, we’ve got you covered on back-to-school sweets. Shown above: our Back-to-School Cupcake Package and our Apple Cake Pops!
Did you know that dark chocolate helps boost your memory? Really! While studying, may I suggest you snack on our Dark Chocolate Cake Pops, Chocolate Expresso Cupcakes, or Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels? Just because it’s brain food doesn’t mean it can’t be delicious. Bring some to a study group! Just be sure to share. You don’t want a sugar rush while you’re stuck in the library, trust me, I know.
Another idea that DOESN’T involve sweets (sorry) on how to make returning to school more fun is crafting your supplies. Here are some fun DIYs! Because why shouldn’t you have a glittery stapler or fun text book covers?
