Most of September and October has still felt like summer and tricked me into thinking that we'd have gorgeous temps in the 80s well into December. (Wishful thinking I know!) Even though I've been enjoying the beautiful whether, I've found it hard to get into my festive fall baking spirit. Who wants to turn the oven on when it's 80 out unless they have to? Not me.
But, the winds of change have blown in cooler temps, crisp air, an abundance of colorful fall leaves, and my baking inspiration! There is no better way to say hello to fall than with Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes.
The pumpkin cake is an airy, flavorful, and topped with a rich cream cheese frosting. The texture of the cake is very light and the contrast from the heavy frosting was the perfect touch. The frosting was absolutely delicious!! When eating a cupcake, I'll usually scrape most of the frosting off of of the cupcake. I ate every last bit of frosting with this cupcake. I contemplated for a while about going back into the kitchen and just eating it by the spoonful . I didn't.;-)
Happy Fall everyone! I'll keep the cupcakes coming!
