Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes


The leaves aren’t changing yet, but the kids are back in school, pumpkin spice latte is back in the coffee shops and fall is in the air!

Speaking of pumpkin spice, why not make some cupcakes?  I’ve made a few variations of pumpkin cake in the past.  The from-scratch version is here, the easy-peasy version here, and the chocolate version is here!

Baseball Stadium Cake


Spud’s 6th birthday was last month and he had a baseball themed party (see Amy’s Cooking Adventures for all the details!) complete with a baseball stadium cake!

For the cake, I baked up a chocolate cake in 8-inch square pans and coated it with buttercream.  After leveling the cake, I had these perfect slanted bits leftover that I placed on top to use as stands!  I covered the stands in fondant (pretty much the only fondant on the cake, since Spud asked for "no roll out frosting") and then cut pieces out so I would have a place to sprinkle nonpareils to represent the crowd!
