Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Pumpkin Spice Cupcake Recipe

Since Fall is right around the corner, I’ve been breaking out the Pumpkin. Last Saturday and Sunday, I tried out several new Fall dessert recipes. Both of them turned out splendidly but, unfortunately, I only snagged pictures of these little beauties.

I love how this recipe incorporated a butterscotch pudding mix into the dry ingredients. I never would have thought of trying this on my own! It kept the cupcakes from drying out. True story: I ate another one of these bad boys today. Four days later the cupcakes still tasted fresh.

P.S. I may have snuck a few bites of cupcake to Josephine and she may have l-o-v-e-d it. We have a foodie in training.

DIY: Paper Candy Corns

Halloween is coming up fast and it’s time to do some serious decorating. Orange and black are blanketing stores from left to right, making it tempting to go out and buy some of those compelling decorations. However, there are things you can make that are just as cute and way less expensive using those famous Halloween colors. Like making giant candy corns.  All they are made of are paper, glue, and a few other materials. They can enhance any table display, and give the house a bright Halloween feel.
