I had 2 cakes baked and one in the oven by 8 this morning. As the last one was baking away I was frosting and decorating some lovely cupcakes. (Lemon cupcakes with a Vanilla Buttercream. I piped roses on them and painted them red and added some shimmer to them with some edible glitter to act as dew. And Pumpkin Spice cupcakes with a Caramel Cinnamon Cream Cheese frosting adorned with hand painted chocolate leaves and chocolate discs.) Oh YUM! I made a 12-inch, 2 layer Vanilla cake with White Buttercream for an order going out tomorrow and I baked a Dark Chocolate Fudge cake to make into cake balls and cake pops for another order going out tomorrow. Busy busy busy day!! Busy but productive! Pictures to come!
I just made my Dulce de Leche Buttercream for the Orange Coconut cupcakes I made yesterday. It is SINFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had some leftover and I couldn't let it go to waste so I'm whipping up some mini Dark Chocolate Fudge cupcakes to put it on!
I made some wonderfully yummy Pumpkin Spice cupcakes today. Oh they were fabulous. I know that "warm and cozy" isn't a flavor but if anything could truly be described as tasting "warm and cozy" it would be these delectable cakes. Just perfect for a Fall day.
I also decided to do a bit of experimenting today. I put a few of the cupcakes into the food processor and crumbed them, added about 1/2 cup of sugar, about 1/2 cup of butter and then pressed that "dough" into a mini (bite-size) tartlet pan and poured enough homemade pumpkin pie filling into the pan to fill the cup and then baked them. They turned out fabulously.
