Fall is my favorite season! Halloween, Thanksgiving, Festivals, Farmers Markets and just the turning of the leaves…..in 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!
