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.

Vanilla Madeleines Filled With Fresh Raspberry Mousse

Vanilla-Madeleines-With-Raspberry-FillingVanilla Madeleines filled with fresh, tart, raspberry mousse and delicately topped with whipped dark chocolate ganache.  Take these simple french tea cakes to the next level.  I promise you won’t stop eating them!

Simply put, french pastries are awesome.  There are so many different kinds it’s pretty amazing.  You have the Tarte au Citron.  The Chocolate Eclair.  The Macaron (which I have yet to master).  I could go on for probably forever, but at the top of my list of favorites is the simple little delicate cookie daintily named the Madeleine.  Even the name is beautiful.  So beautiful that children are named after this gorgeous little cookie.  Actually, I’m pretty sure Madeleine is derived from Magdalene, but if I was a new mommy again I would name her after a cookie.  No regrets.
