Fall is Here!

Finally, my favorite time of year has arrived! Pumpkin Spice Lattes, festivals, boots and leggings... I just can't get enough! Fall also brings in the busy season, I guess brides love this season as well. I can't wait to share some of the upcoming cakes this season! In the meantime, I had the honor of making 150 cupcakes for Emory University's MBA social event. Every year, Java Vino in Decatur hosts this fun group and it is always a great turn-out, despite all of the college football games on TV. I decided to do a fall-theme which included Mocha with Coffee Swiss Meringue Butercream, Pumpkin with Maple Buttercream, S'mores, and Orange Creamsicle.
I also made GF wedding cupcakes for a bride at the Pace House in Vinings. What a cute venue! The MOB was gluten-free, so it was nice of the bride to have these made for her mom. I added a vintage touch with the monogram.

It was a busy weekend but it was nice to watch people Ohh and Ahh over the cupcakes, it makes my job worth while :) I wanted to include a picture of the ugly side of baking... it's not always easy... but learning from mistakes always pays off in the future!

Yes, that is 2 dozen cupcakes in the trash. That comes along with trying new recipes and tasting one bite, spitting it out because it is nowhere near calorie-worthy. Oh well... on to the next recipe! 

Happy Baking!
