My new favorite book is a cupcake cooking and decorating book. It is called "Hello Cupcake" and has the best decorating ideas for cupcakes that I have ever seen. Check out the book website to see what great ideas this book has. Josh's parents recently got the book for me when they visited us a few weeks ago. Josh and I decided to make some pumpkin cupcakes for this weekend's Halloween festivities. We followed a recipe in the book that adds canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to a boxed cake recipe. The cakes were delicious. We piped the batter into cupcake liners and baked them. Once they were cooled, we began the decorating process complete with orange-colored icing, orange sugar sprinkles and a green-colored twizzler for the pumpkin stems. Here is how they turned out...

Not too bad... we will definitely be attempting more recipes in the near future! Many more cupcake-worthy festivities are coming up soon. Hope everyone had a very sweet Halloween.
