Spiced Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting – a sneak peek

Here are my offerings for the Autumn. My specials for September and October are going to be Spiced Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting:

They will come in a mix of brown, orange and white cases and will be decorated with handmade mini pumpkins, autumn leaf sprinkles and flowers in Autumnal colours. As we go towards Halloween, they can have ‘Fright Mix’ or ‘Pumpkin’ Sprinkles, as well as purple, black and orange cases.

 Above is a mini cupcake version with the Autumn Leaf sprinkles – I rather like these, although you do have to look closely to see they are actually leaves!

The sponge is very light and fluffy, made with pumpkin puree  and generously spiced with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The frosting is lightly spiced with cinnamon and together they make a very more-ish mouthful! Well, between us we seem to have got through rather a lot today…

 The other specials for September and October will be:

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Lemon Icing and

Maple Syrup Cupcakes with Maple Frosting.

The maple syrup cupcakes are always very popular when I make them, although I fear they will cost a bit more this year, as maple syrup has gone up so much in price. The gingerbread cupcake is a new one and different to the Fresh Ginger and Molasses cupcake on the website. It will be more like a traditional, sticky gingerbread, but still light.

All will be loaded onto the website on 1st September and will be available to order until 31st October.
