The frostings of fall and Think Pink!

Fall is my favorite season! Halloween, Thanksgiving, Festivals, Farmers Markets and just the turning of the leaves… other states cause Texas’ trees don’t turn orange. 😦

So far, I have baked 3 delicious types of cupcakes. I think my favorite and most rewarding is the Reese’s Peanut Buttercup. The frosting on these decadent little cakes is sooooo gooood!! I literally licked the bowl clean! Plus the little surprise that I hid inside was even better, an actual mini Reese’s Peanut Buttercup, YUM!!

Wanting pumpkin bread so bad, but still craving the chocolate, I decided to venture out and bake Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins topped with cream cheese frosting. My best friends son and daughter love pumpkin bread and I wanted to give them a little surprise. They gobbled them up! We met at St. Arnold’s Brewery in Houston for a little beer and some goodies. And as you can see this kid wanted to pick off the icing!

But after 2 or 3 muffins, I think he still wanted more!

Now, the most recent cupcake was for a Mary Kay party I hosted at my home. Knowing MK is pink and October is Breast Cancer Awareness month I wanted to incorporate pink ribbons on my cupcakes. So I came up with Coconut Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and coconut shavings. They were a hit and I can honestly say they were beautiful. I will make this my yearly October cupcake.

My other best friends mother is a cancer patient and it really hits home. Please ladies, get checked, check yourself and be aware of your health. Let’s fight this cancer!!!

Have a great week and more so a Spooky Halloween. Until my next blog….Keep frosting!
