Pumpkin Patch [msc]

Photobucket

So the trouble with living in basically two places is that sometimes on amazon you forget to change your shipping address. That's exactly what happened to me. I had shipped my pumpkin puree that I bought online to home, like in Orange County, California, but currently I'm in Northern California for school.

I had a couple of my friends who came up this past weekend bring some up for me and the cans of pumpkin puree are HUGE. 29 oz. It'll be a lot of pumpkin stuff this fall. Cupcakes, cookies, muffins, bread, pie, and whatever else I can think of.

These are were really easy to put together; I had just made 1/4 of the recipe since I know that I just made another pumpkin recipe for Sweet Melissa Sundays.

They were pretty good. This week was just really hard school wise for me. Just a lot of stuff that needs to get done in a short amount of time. I am not really getting the 8 hours suggested, but then again, who does? Back to more homework, club stuff, and sleep later on tonight.

The recipe for this month's Cupcake Club is found on pages 236 of Martha Stewart's Cupcake book. Thanks to Kim of What the Whisk for choosing this.

  7. I heard about this pumpkin shortage this year and I shrugged it off. "Houston ALWAYS has plenty of canned pumpkin" I said. PAH! Couldn't find ONE CAN. Hive fives to your friends for bringing you some. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that they would be taste testers ;)

  16. Oooh i love your decorations!! and i'm SO jealous of you massive tins of pumpkin puree!! I know we're suffering the 'great pumpkin crisis' of 2009, but it always feels that way over here in london! I can't wait to see all the pumpkin goodies you come up with to get through the puree! x

  17. I am totally digging your cupcakes! Fun decorations!

    I liked these too and they taste better I think if you increase the spices and pumpkin puree.

    Thanks for baking along with us Nina!
