Start of my Favorite Season
I love the Holidays. It is honestly my favorite time of year but this year has been a hectic mess which kind of explains my absence from here. So I’m going to try my best to bring you some great things to make your Holidays a more delicious place. Starting with these cupcakes, I love pumpkin in anything and pumpkin pie and fresh real whipped cream is heaven to me. But who has the time to bake a pie and let it cool for hours when you need a pumpkin pie fix. Enter these fantastic little cupcakes, And the best part is there is no crust which I feel just gets in the way with the pumpkiny goodness and making pie crust scares me! So please give these a whirl you won’t be disappointed.
