When I first thought of making pumpkin cupcakes for Halloween, I envisioned them with cute, little Jack-O-Lantern faces. Some orange frosting, some chocolate for detailing. I figured it should all be easy enough. Except they turned out looking more like a 3-year-old decorated them… Ain’t reality a bitch?
Are you wondering what kind of Halloween treat you can conjure up for your little ones this year? How about an old favourite, with a seasonal twist!
Earlier this month, was my Mom’s birthday. And we all know what that means! CAKE!!!! :-) Except it was already a busy weekend and I didn’t have the time I needed to dedicate to a whole cake. So I compromised… CUPCAKES!!! :-)
Dave’s biggest complaint about my baking is that there’s too much brown… Scratch that… Dave’s biggest complaint about my baking is that he never gets the same thing twice. He knows that no matter how much he raves about a cookie/cake/muffin/pie, there’s a good probability that he’s never going to see that recipe again… Dave’s SECOND biggest complaint is that there’s too much brown.
Are you ready for my last “summer” recipe of the season? I hope so, because I’m bursting to share this one with you!… Chocolate cake batter ice cream, with chocolate chunks (because what goes better with chocolate than MORE chocolate, right? :-) )… And when the only pants that still fit you are your jogging sweats, please keep in mind that this is not my fault. I’m holding Jamie over at Love Bakes Good Cakes responsible, because it was her delicious looking recipe that inspired me… So my conscience is clean ;-)
