OK, so I live in Puerto Rico and we don’t really have Fall, or any season other than Summer for that matter. That doesn’t mean I can’t get inspired by the flavors of Fall. I might eat them with hot cocoa and a warm sweater, but then again, I might melt and people will surely call me crazy.
Take a look at the cupcakes I have featured for the month of October:
Almond Chocolate Cupcakes:
These yummy cupcakes are almond-flavored with chopped toasted almonds. With double-chocolate buttercream icing and topped with chopped toasted almonds.
I think the almond taste is very subtle, and the chopped almonds give it a great crunch. The icing is super chocolatey!
Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes:
These cupcakes are apple-cinnamon-flavored with chopped walnuts and raisins. Filled with cinnamon-sugar-cream-cheese filling. With vanilla buttercream icing and topped with chopped walnuts.
I would categorize these more like muffins than cupcakes, and the filling is the awesomest I have ever tasted!
Peanut Butter Cupcakes:
These cupcakes are peanut-butter-flavored. With double-chocolate buttercream icing and topped with chopped peanuts.
Everyone who likes peanut butter cups will surely love these. Even my husband liked them, and he doesn’t like peanut butter!
Zelma’s Halloween Cupcake Box:
Happy Halloween! These festive cupcakes are vanilla-flavored with orange and black jimmies. With vanilla buttercream icing in orange and black colors and topped with a halloween-themed decoration in fondant. Includes a variety of decorations: pumpkin, ghost, bat, and witch’s hat.
These have to be the cutest cupcakes I’ve made so far, if I do say so myself. They’re so friggin’ cute, my lil man started screaming when he saw them!
Unfortunately, these are only available in Puerto Rico. If I try to ship them, no matter how careful I am, the frosting will get smashed, and that’s definitely NOT good eats!
