I spent my Sunday afternoon baking cupcakes for my favorite holiday, and it made me so happy. Baking is like my therapy, the perfect escape from reality for a few hours. Since Halloween is almost here, and since it’s Autumn, I thought I would make pumpkin cupcakes. I also decorated them with some cute Halloween theme decorations. They are so good!
I tweaked it a little, but I got the recipe from here, follow this link if you want to make these delicious cupcakes! http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/11/16/favorite-pumpkin-cupcakes/
I have never baked anything with pumpkin in it, so I was interested to see how it would taste. These are some of the decorations I put aside for later.
The items in my kitchen just happened to perfectly match the theme of the day.
Once I had mixed all the ingredients it looked, smelled, and tasted so delicious already!
They were ready to go in the oven looking amazing… Also they made the house smell like Fall. Yum.
This is how they looked after baking. My only complaint is that they didn’t rise that much, but they were in higher cupcake cups than the usual ones, so it wasn’t too bad.
Time to decorate! The “too low” problem was easily fixable once I started adding frosting. To make the frosting look prettier I whipped it and then put it in a plastic bag. Once it’s in there, you can just cut one corner and it squeezes out perfectly.
I made some with faces made out of candy!
These ones I decorated with the sprinkles I bought.
I love how they turned out! They also tasted delicious, and I have 5 other people that can attest to that. :)
The cupcake holders I used are from Mary & Martha, a direct sales company. My mom sells these items, and the bakeware is so cute. I used the line for my graduation party! If you’re interested, you can order them here: http://www.mymaryandmartha.com/DENEEN/
