Tremors CupcakesThis is Yummy Crumble’s second Halloween under it’s belt and it’s definitely my favorite time of the year to bake.  At what other time is it okay to make edible intestines and chewy eyeballs?  Last year the rage was all about Monster Strawberry Cupcakes and Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cakes.  This year, I’m breaking out my favorite monster movie, Tremors for inspiration.  In my opinion, it’s some of the best work done by Kevin Bacon.  Just watch this —-> Can you fly, you sucker? Who doesn’t love Kevin Bacon?  This ones for you Kevin.

Star Wars Sarlacc CupcakesThere are many benefits to living in Dubai.  First, all the crazy things you see on a weekly basis.  That buzzfeed list, is not in any way an exaggeration.  The food.  Oh my goodness the food!  Also the movie theaters are amazing here.  They even have a luxury VIP section that is out of this world.  Movies will never be the same for me when I go back home.  Speaking of movies…The movie set of Star Wars the Force Awakens is basically an hour and half drive away.  How cool is that?  I know what our family is going to be doing next weekend.  Driving the dunes of Abu Dhabi searching for droids, Jawas, and the Millennium Falcon.

Star Wars Sarlacc CupcakesIt is definitely not a secret how geeky our family is and baking geeky desserts is one of my favorite things to make for the blog.  One of my most popular posts was my Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake.  So since Halloween is just around the corner, I put together these Star Wars Sarlacc Cupcakes.  They were incredibly easy to decorate and perfectly adorable for your next Halloween or Star Wars themed party.

I love nothing more than taking my son Oliver Trick or Treating.  Seeing his eyes light up with every drop in his bucket, and hearing him proudly exclaim “I’m a clone trooper!” to every neighbor.  It makes my heart smile.  But with that fun filled night comes loads and loads of candy I end up hiding from his greedy little hands.  Not so fun.

Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake

Star Wars Sarlacc Caramel Bundt Cake dusted with Biscoff Cookie Crumbs and drizzled with Salted Caramel Sauce - www.yummycrumble.comButtery caramel flavored moist bundt cake drizzled with homemade salted caramel sauce and dusted with Biscoff Cookie Crumbles.  Two Biscoff madeleines with salted caramel buttercream teeth make the monster of this Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake.

I have a little confession about my family.  We’re a bunch of geeks.  Geeks to the core.  I’m a Disney fanatic sprinkled with a little Harry Potter and drizzled heavily with I Love Lucy.  My husband is a Trekkie who’s obsessed with Star Wars all while being a loyal Battle Star Galactica fan.  But geeks are awesome. So while October comes to a close, this Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake is for you geeks!

Star Wars Sarlacc Caramel Bundt Cake dusted with Biscoff Cookie Crumbs and drizzled with Salted Caramel Sauce - www.yummycrumble.comSo for all you non-geeks, a Sarlacc is a horrific plant-like omnivorous creature found across the galaxy.  It’s got huge tentacles and a beak and was in the famous pit scene from Return of the Jedi.  This is where Bobba Fett met his maker.  This thing gave me the heebie jeebies the first time I saw Return of the Jedi, so this is my little tribute to him.  I know the Sarlacc traditionally does not have teeth on his beak, but  I just couldn’t resist.  Teeth made of frosting is my new favorite thing.

Would this trigger PTSD for Luke?  Maybe…But I could totally hear him say,

“But I don’t remember the Sarlacc ever having teeth…”

And all the Star Wars trolls nod and clap in agreement.  Hey guys, just think of this Sarlacc as the suped up version with CGI teeth.  I know, CGI is a sore subject.  Either way, this guy is super delicious.  You should make him now.  Teeth or no teeth.

My son’s pre-school Halloween party is coming up next week and I’m excited about making a creepy dessert for his classmates.  Oliver (my little taste tester) has been sampling my Halloween treats all month.  His verdict is…everything has been “too spooky”.  As much as I love making little kids squeel and run away, Oliver has advised me to keep it cute.  I think these Vanilla Mummy Madeleines fit the bill.  They’re so adorable they surely won’t scare the kiddos away.  Not like these devils.  Or these guys.

“Christmas decorations in the stores already?!”

The only thing is…I’m totally okay with it and super excited about it.  Hey, I start listening to Christmas tunes when August comes around.  I’m the last person you should be complaining to about the commercialization of Christmas.  Sorry Linus from Charlie Brown, but I’m the gal with my Christmas tree up and decorated before you can finish saying Happy Thanksgiving!  That being said, this is my last spooky cupcake post!  Bring on the cinnamon, cloves, apples, and all things jolly!
