Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 26, 2009

Regardless of how much turkey, casserole, and yams I eat, there's always room for dessert.  I'm sure you can agree!  My vote always go to pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, but if you are not into pie, celebrate with a seasonal pumpkin cake/cupcakes with cream cheese frosting!


Cut out maple leaves...



Lay them on a silicon leaf impression and press.  (Stores sell ones specifically for maple impressions, but I used a general one that is good for a wide variety of leaves.  Plus, these are pretty pricey so unless you are making a lot of them or really want to be botanically correct, this will do.)






Time for some dusting to liven up these leaves.  Here is the color lineup:

 



Cupcakes!

 

 

 

Enjoy!  Have a delicious and merry Thanksgiving with family/friends!
