My church had a Cream of the Crop party a while ago to celebrate the opening of our pumpkin patch. There was a chili cook off and a pumpkin dessert competition. I entered the dessert competition with some pumpkin cupcakes that looked and tasted like pumpkin. They were pretty tasty! Unfortunately they did not win the competition, but I thought they were cute.
First I made some pumpkin cupcakes and then iced them with some orange icing.
Then I rolled the iced cupcakes in a bowl of orange decorating sugar. I love sprinkles!
The next step is to make the ridges in the pumpking with some different colored orange icing. Mine were ugly- I started out actually using a toothpick to make indentions and then filling it in with the icing, but I decided it wasn't worth the effort.
Then I cut some green apple flavored licorice for pumpkin stems, and here is the final product!
A lady at my work is getting married on Halloween and she saw these and asked for them at her shower that we are having for her at work. I am going to do these as well as a couple of other designs if I can get all the supplies in time.
