Pumpkin cupcakes with a kick: Thanksgiving’s new best friend

Yes, I’m still thinking about the cupcakes I made for Thanksgiving.


Pumpkin cupcakes with salted caramel buttercream frosting. Complete with homemade salted caramel. They were delicious if I don’t say so myself. These cupcakes were a big hit, even next to their biggest competitor (pumpkin pie).

I have to admit it. I got the recipe and idea from Pinterest. Go figure. It originally came from a blog called Made in Melissa’s Kitchen. You can find the recipe here.

This was my first time using a pastry bag to ice cupcakes, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Using a pastry bag adds an instant touch of professionalism to the cupcakes and of course I had to find a garnish…I felt like I was mimicking an episode of Cupcake Wars. (great show by the way)

Oh, and I was using my dad’s awesome Canon camera. I will hopefully be receiving one for Christmas, so you can expect high quality photos like the above photos. Great news for That Foodie Girl!

And for your viewing pleasure, I have some photos of the amazing Christmas lights around Oklahoma City.

And it’s not too late to make pumpkin cupcakes. Forget that it’s December tomorrow. With the holidays, anything goes. Happy holidays.

Bon app├ętit,
