Yesterday we threw a bridal shower for my friend who's getting married in 2 weeks.  I decided to make cupcakes.  Approximately 72 of them.

 Yellow cake with Chocolate Butter-Cream.

 My personal favorite, Dark Chocolate cake with Peanut Butter Butter-Cream.  I love that Reese's make mini peanut butter cups now, they look so cute on top.

And in honor of fall, and because the bride loves pumpkin, Pumpkin Spice cake with Cream Cheese Butter-Cream.

They were a pretty big success.  The Pumpkin Cream Cheese seemed to be  a crowd favorite.  I bet I gained 5 lbs from licking beaters, spoons, and mixing bowls - after I was done using them of course.  Mr. Backwoods nearly had an aneurism because I wouldn't let him eat lots of them.  He was, however, quite pleased when I brought home leftovers.


  1. I'm drooling right now, just from looking at this post! What beautiful cupcakes! If they were only half as good as they look, I bet they were a hit!

  2. Mmmmmmm- cupcakes!!!! Those peanut butter ones would have been the first I would have tried!!

  3. These all looks delicious - but the peanut butter ones would have me back for seconds. Beautifully done!

  4. ooh, yum!! I love pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting!! I may need to do some baking, now... and the ones with the baby reeses peanut butter cups sound tasty, too!!
