I have a baking problem.
I had some friends over Sunday night for a small “anti-draft” party, as all of our husbands were fantasy football drafting that evening, and I baked forever. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to bake without sweating (and have a large kitchen to spread out!), so once I started…I didn’t stop.
One of the fun items I made was pumpkin cupcakes with salted caramel buttercream icing. Yeah, think about that deliciousness for a second.
Or just look.

I actually had my own pictures, but I left my camera at home and am impatient, so I’ll give credit where credit is due and show someone else’s.
These things are ridiculously good – and sweet. Talk about a sugar rush. Tara saw me lick the spoon (and the bowl) clean Sunday afternoon. Ridiculous.
Naturally, with most things I bake these days, I found the recipe through Pinterest, and click here to go directly to the recipe.
Make them. And love them.
Or you can share them with people who recently had too-sweet-for-me-to-do-anything-but-baby-talk babies.
Like this baby.
She can’t eat the cupcakes now, but her mama and daddy can.
I think I need another one now. Hmmm.
Also (told you this was a hodgepodge). I need new books to read. What’s out there that’s captivated you, makes you want to read all the time? With football season coming up and my sweet husband doing two radio shows a week, I need some fun reading material. So share away! =)
