Autumn Tree Cupcakes

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes topped with
Cinamamin Buttercream Icing & Chocolate Trees

As the days get shorter, the nights get colder and the leaves start to change I find myself leaning towards different flavors in my baking.  Whether it be pumpkin or apple, pecans or chestnuts, cinnamon or nutmeg…  It’s out with the fruity light flavors of summer and in with the warm rich flavors of fall. 

I recently saw a recipe for chocolate trees on cupcakestakethecake and decided that my friend Katrina and I must try it. We paired it with a pumpkin chocolate chip cupcake and a cinnamon butter cream icing. Despite our best efforts we couldn’t seem to get our trees to remain firm outside of the refrigerator for much longer than a minute or two.  

Never the less, they ended up tasting pretty good and were an excellent back to school themed tasty treat.  Many thanks to Katrina for her help with these ones. Happy autumn everyone
