pumpkin patch

Today I decided I would make some pumpkin cupcakes. So I did. Since we are going to the hub's family for Thanksgiving I thought I would bring a contribution this year. Actually, this will be the first time for me to spend Thanksgiving with the hubs' family. Some how every year since I've known him I've always been somewhere far away or gone to other far off and exoticly frozen lands to spend the holiday. Then in the morning my sis and I go shopping... it's nice and I like it a lot. I wish I could go visit her again this year, but it's really just not possible, which is really sad.

Anyhow, I thought I would bring a gift to share, and since I Love to bake (love love love) I thought I would bake something to take. I also had a whole day all to myself (well, not really, but almost) and had all of my wonderful baking goods handy, I had to make the most of it. So I did and it was Wonderful! ah, the joys of baking yummies and the sweet wonderful smell that fills the house when you do...

I thought I would document this particular baking day since I've never tried to make these particular cupcakes before. I decided if they turned out I would post a few pictures, and if they didn't I wouldn't. I guess I think they turned out pretty well since I am posting pictures of my baking day. And so it goes...


First, I got all of the ingredients together. obviously.


Then I mixed 'em all up and baked the little suckers. The recipe said it would make 24... Apparently it was wrong.


After the cupcakes cooled and the icing was mixed up, I frosted them, all 48 cupcakes.
After the frosting I dipped them in sugar, but I forgot to take a picture of that step ...


So this is what it looked like with the sugar and the stem. They make me happy.



My little pumpkin patch. wa. la.


Happy Thanksgiving! I wish I could share my pumpkin patch with you and enjoy your company... sadly, not this year (unless of course I will be spending the day with you in which case that doesn't apply to you). so yes, yes.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!
