25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween.

Easy Cranberry Spice Tea Cake


Warning: Boxed cake mix is an "ingredient" in this recipe. That is in part what makes it easy. During the busy holidays, it's necessary to have some easy dishes, especially for entertaining! Though if you want to make this 100% from scratch, start with a classic spice cake recipe. If you're also the type to turn your nose up at canned cranberry sauce, here is a recipe for jellied cranberry sauce from scratch.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pkg. moist spice-cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/3 c veg oil or melted butter
  • 1 can (1 lb.) Ocean Spray whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)

Prepare the boxed cake mix according to directions then add in the cranberry sauce and extra cinnamon and nutmeg until thoroughly combined, and gently fold in the fresh cranberries. *If making the cake from scratch, add the cranberry sauce to the wet mixture before combining with dry ingredients, and gently fold in cranberries after all other ingredients have been combined.


Bake at 350 (cupcakes - about 20-25 min, loaf pan  40-45  min). I made mine in loaf pans to make a tea cake and topped it of with cream cheese frosting. Garnish with fresh sage leaves and cranberries.
