pumpkin time

28 Oct

it *just might* be a bit chilly today. chilly makes me think of fall. fall makes me think of pumpkins (and candy corn, of course). pumpkins (and candy corn) make me want to bake, so i did just that.

a few weeks ago, i made smitten kitchen’s pumpkin spice cupcakes with maple cream cheese frosting for a dinner with friends (where we scarfed down our other favorite pumpkin meal: pumpkin sausage pasta). i think i actually squealed a tiny bit when i pulled the cupcakes out of the oven and they looked like proper cupcakes; this rarely happens in my attempts at baking.

these cuppies are super nom-worthy. the only thing that could have made them better? being able to find the candy corn’s first cousin, the pumpkin candy corn. i went to three stores and nothing. what’s up with that? it must be the universe mocking my pumpkin love.
