Pumpkin Red Velvet Cupcakes

 Pumpkin-Red Velvet

Pumpkin Spice Cake Beneath a Layer of Red Velvet. Cream Cheese Frosting.

So, this is a weird one. And I know what you're thinking... "how do these two even make sense together?" Well let me tell ya, it's odd, but it is absolutely delicious! When you think about it, the spices in pumpkin spice cake go really well with chocolate... and there is that slight cocoa flavor in red velvet. These will blow your mind!

Apple Cider Doughnut Cupcake

 Apple Cider Doughnut

One of my must have treats during the fall is the local apple orchard's fresh apple cider doughnuts. Ohhhh boy. They are so delicious! I wanted to recreate it, so here it is!
Apple Cider Doughnut Cupcake! The Browned Butter Cake is supposed to mimic the taste of that golden, fried exterior of a doughnut. The Vanilla Frosting is supposed to be the flavor of the glaze. And it's sprinkled with my own combination of Apple Cider Spices.


Apple Cobbler Cupcake

Apple Cobbler

There's something about that intoxicating smell of spices and butter perfuming the house once you pull bubbly Apple Cobbler out of the oven, and barely waiting for the temperature to go from tongue meltingly hot to bareable with a huge scoop of ice cream before slapping a huge helping on your plate. Well, you don't have to worry about burning your tongue on this rendition of apple cobbler!
