Pumpkin Cupcakes

One of the best things about fall is the smell of something spicy and sweet baking in the oven. These cupcakes definitely do the trick. They are the perfect balance of sweet and spicy, with a maple cream cheese frosting. Since this batch wasn't for my family, I had to make more for us the next day. They were pretty awesome.

Halloween cupcakes

I really really love Halloween.......and chocolate. So, I made chocolate Halloween cupcakes.
 (or "rip" cupcakes as my 6 year old is calling them) 
Hopefully they will taste as cute as they look. (but you really can't go wrong with ganache) In fact, I think I'll go try one right now.......

Bakerella's book signing

I met her! It was like meeting an A list celebrity. Bakerella was one sweet lady...full of energy, and so personable.  She also brought with her Cupcake Julie, who was cool enough to get into the picture.

I am so excited- tomorrow Bakerella is coming to Seattle for a book signing! I hope to be first in line, jumping up and down with glee. I made these pops that a meant to look like Bakerella. I might even bring them to give to her. (although I haven't yet decided if that might seem stalker-ish)
