I hope you all had a fantastic Friday. I know mine hasn't been the best health wise, but this is nothing new, so I trek through as always :) Yesterday Nathan and I had a relaxing Texas day, that means we enjoyed each others company, the beautiful weather, finalized our Halloween costumes (yes I will be blogging about my favorite time of year ;)), and then I baked him some yummy pumpkin spice cupcakes. I spoil this man so much, but it brings me the utmost joy to do so, my runner up would be my cutie nephew Miguel!
Now I have only made this recipe once, and it turned out great, but this time I decided to test out different spices and the measurements. For those of you whom don't know me, other than through my blog, this is the way I like to cook and bake. It's actually the way I was raised. Like my grandfather always said, "recipes are directions and guidelines only!", and I couldn't agree more (he is a wise man after all). When I cook, I love to get my nose up really close and smell the aroma. Of course, I will take a taste now and then (to make sure it's not poison lol), and I have even been known to literally get my hands it there too! So when I decided to make these delicious cupcakes again, I decided to venture further with my spices than originally. There are two recipes with this one, since you need special icing to go with pumpkin cupcakes ;), so hang on to your whisks we are heading to cupcake town!
