Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love everything about it. Cool, crisp air. Color changing trees. Falling leaves. Pumpkins and squash. Church dinners with friends and family. Fall festivals. Sweaters. The anticipation of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The list could go on and on.
In anticipation of Halloween I made some cake pops. These were a yellow cake that I dyed orange in honor of Halloween. We are celebrating at my mom's with food and trick or treating. We all bring something and share and have lots of chatting. We trick or treat with my niece and her friend. Afterwards, we rummage through the candy that they don't like and eat too much sugar! Good times!
The pumpkin cupcakes with orange flavored buttercream were made per the request of my friend's middle son, Matthew. He told me next time I came to visit that I should make pumpkin cupcakes. On that visit, Matthew and Henry, Anne's oldest, made pizza and salad with me for dinner. They loved the cupcakes! So did their dog as Matthew's fell out his hand! Ha! He swallowed the entire cupcake before we could grab it!
Keep an eye on the blog because there will be more fall treats coming! :-)
