Black and White Halloween Cupcakes {3 ways}

I love these cupcakes because they all look different, but they follow my favorite rule: keep it simple.  Same cake, same frosting, but three different, cute, Halloween designs. I used my favorite homemade chocolate cake recipe, and my favorite vanilla buttercream.  I even used the same Wilton icing Tip (large 1A)  then I did a… Continue reading Black and White Halloween Cupcakes {3 ways}

Make this crustless cranberry pie, and it will will be the best thing you put in your mouth this fall. And, wait for it…. It will be the easiest dessert you throw together this fall, too.

Fudgiest Ever Pumpkin Bread {with brown butter icing}

Oh joy, it is September.  The “ember” months.  My most favorite four months of the whole entire year.  For me, it’s not just the pumpkin spiced everything, although I certainly enjoy that part.  It’s the coziness of fall.  The boots and the sweaters, the cool weather, the pumpkins, the anticipation of the holiday season, and… Continue reading Fudgiest Ever Pumpkin Bread {with brown butter icing}
