Fall = Pumpkins!

Fall is here! For me this is the perfect season for anything pumpkin! Pumpkin pies, pumpkin decorations, pumpkin costumes, pasta with a pumpkin cream sauce (a sneak of what's to come) and pumpkin cupcakes! This Sunday was a the perfect lazy, rainy day to make these delicious little seasonal treats.
