I'm not updating as much as I should, for shame. Last weekend I made pumpkin cupcakes using a boxed yellow cake mix with canned pumpkin. I think they turned out nice-looking, but they tasted so-so. Not something I would make again. I love cake mix, but pumpkin cupcakes are apparently something that should be made from scratch.
Minis! I liked these the best.
I searched through three different stores at least, trying to find a bag of Brach's pumkins. They're one of my favorite Fall candies, and I wanted them for the cupcakes. I couldn't find them anywhere, and had to settle for a bag of Autumn Mix candies, which came with pumpkins, candy corn, and chocolate candy corn. The inventor of the chocolate candy corn must have been a sick person playing a mean trick, because that stuff is AWFUL. We tossed it out because no one was eating it.Blech.
This weekend I plan to make banana cupcakes/muffins. I'm either going to go the cupcake route, and top them with cream cheese frosting, or go the muffin route, and top them with an oat and brown sugar crumble. I haven't decided yet.
