VeganMoFo: Boo Y'all

Whenever I tell people that I'm from Texas, they are usually amazed because I don't have an accent. But I am always quick to point out that I do use the word "y'all"... a lot. I even use "all y'all" with an amazing frequency. So I couldn't resist these Halloween napkins.... the mummy cupcake is saying:
I also made some spiderweb cupcakes with chocolate ganache. Both were for a SOP vegan potluck picnic yesterday which, by the way, was a perfect Texas fall day.
Is everyone ready for the final week of mofo?

I love those cupcakes! I'm in such a Halloween mood and I absolutely love how festive these are.

I love that you say y'all! So do I and I'm not from the South. I just love that it's so gender neutral. Cupcakes, as always, look incredible. As far as MoFo, I'm exhausted!

Hey, Amanda! How y'all doin? Yesterday was a beautiful day. I love to wear shorts in October.

Your cupcakes are so spooky! I love the mummy especially.

Jes said...

Your cupcakes are killer cute! I get the same thing about the accent. A Georgian without an accent?! But I have managed to not say "ya'll" too much yet. :)

Amey said...

y'all is a wonderful word that is truly filling a void in the English language. Say it loud!

I love your halloweeny cuppers. I have a lot of halloween baking ideas, so I have a grand vision of baking a different treat for each of my yoga classes this week. I'm sure it's unrealistic, but for now I remain optimistic.

Yes, one week of MoFo to go... and I must say, there is so much to blog about. I have a big list. I'll try to go out with a bang!

:)

I just can't bring myself to say "ya'll". It's "you guys" for me! Sergio forgot to grab a cupcake! I told him they were REALLY good and he missed out. That mural on Montrose is past Inversion going towards Allen Parkway, but it's on the other side of the street.

I have yet to get to Texas but somehow find myself saying y'all occationally anyway. Usually at work when lots of people come in at once and I just address them all "How y'all doing today?"
Those cupcakes are way too cute. I need to make Halloween goodies.

Ricki said...

Love those cupcakes, y'all!! And I cannot believe how quickly this MoFo has gone by--it will be Halloween in just a few days!! Can't wait to see all the MoFo treats posted for that. . . :)

Love the napkins, and those cupcakes are the cutest - but they would be even cuter in my tummy!

pixiepine said...

Yay for cute cupcakes! I am enjoying MoFo! I might keep up the crazy amount of posting!

The cupcakes are awesome. By the way, I don't have an accent either.

adorable cupcakes! and those napkins are cute, too. y'all.

Bianca said...

You are such an awesome decorator! And I say ya'll all the time too. I was raised in Arkansas (and moved to Memphis after college), but I got rid of my accent pretty early on...I used to be ashamed of my Southern roots.

But in college, I took some Delta folklore classes and really began to appreciate my culture....so I picked ya'll back up and say it all the time!

jessy said...

those mummy cuppies are the BEST EVER! i love them the most! yay! that's too funny on the "ya'll" - i catch myself saying it every once in a while, too - it's kinda big here in virginia as well!

i'm so sad it's the last week of VeganMofo! we've gotta go out with a bang of gloriousness! hooray!

vko said...

Bert said...

Amanda,

I have not visited many blogs lately and clearly I have missed a ton of good stuff on yours; I will have to make a few of these recipes (for example bulgur pilaf with lemon-giner tofu) right away... Your pics are getting better all the time!

Veg-a-Nut said...

I can't believe Mofo is almost over and I have not made a single Halloween treat. What am I thinking? I must really get busy! You do a fantastic job with your cupcakes!
