Pumpkin Cupcake with Salted Dulce de Leche buttercream
Fall is, by far, my favorite season! Fall brings us a gorgeous backdrop for pictures, we often go for weekend drives and find little places we never knew existed. We are fortunate enough to live in an area rich in festivals and farmers markets so there is always something to do!

With Halloween quickly approaching, it is a MUST to make my Pumpkin cupcakes with salted Dulce de Leche Buttercream - Ohhhhhh these are SOOOOOOOOO Good!!!! The cupcake is SUPER moist and the salted caramel brings this cupcake to another dimension!
I made these cupcakes this weekend for a gathering of great friends - as these cupcakes sat perched in their display case, it was nice to see the excitement of  "what kind of cupcakes did you make Nadia?" I swear, we could have had eaten these before the planned lunch!

I absolutely LOVE watching people enjoy my cupcakes and the looks on my friends faces were priceless! It is so gratifying when you see them go back for seconds and even thirds!!!

If you are planning a Halloween party or gathering and would like to make these cupcakes a part of your celebration, email me at

This Birthday cupcake order was one of the easiest thus far! I often ask customers key questions to get to 'know' the recipient of the cupcakes, and for this order - the answer to almost all the questions was CHOCOLATE!!!!

Who doesn't LOVE chocolate???
This cupcake OOZES chocolate! Hence the title of this blog! The ever popular Guinness Chocolate Cupcake was filled with a semi-sweet chocolate ganache and topped with the most delicious Chocolate Fudge icing...really...I'm not often a lick the spatula kind of girl, but this spatula covered in fudge frosting was SCREAMING my name!!!!

This order was made for a wonderful friend that I have known for many years. We recently have been re-acquainted and have been spending time making great memories for ourselves and our kids! 

To this order, I added Happy Birthday cupcake toppers (pictured below) cause its a fun way to decorate and personalize any cupcake order. I often find decorating cupcakes for boys and men a bit more challenging that girls and women. Cupcake toppers make statement without 'over-doing' it with glitter and sprinkles.

The end product is simple yet mouth watering!

Often, through friends we meet friends.That is exactly how I came to know baby D's parents. We first met pre-babies and now we have both been blessed with bouncing boys! It has been an awesome adventure and a great relief to have someone to talk to who is experiencing similar 'events' on a daily basis as I am.

When asked to make cupcakes for baby D's Baptism, I was excited! One of the best parts of this venture, is listening to people try to make decisions on the flavours! I love that people are so excited about all the different kinds of flavours that I offer and am flattered when they can't seem to settle on just one.

I think we went through at least five different kinds before 'setteling' on the final decision of Vanilla Bean filled with Nutella topped with creamy peanut butter buttercream and the previously posted Iced Cappuccino Cupcakes.

I'm sure that Baby D's celebration was one full of Love, Laughter, and Blessings - I'm just glad to have been able to add a little sweetness to the special day!

Blessings to Baby D and his Parents!
