Autumn Cupcakes

073 thumb Autumn Cupcakes

These autumn cupcakes are delicious and beautiful to look at too. They look as if a lot of effort went into making them…but fortunately the are fun & easy to make in no time flat!

014 thumb Autumn Cupcakes

Grab a white cake mix and prepare according to the package directions. Place 1/2 of the cake batter in a separate bowl and mix in orange food coloring. Layer the batter in your lined cupcake tin, alternating between colors.

016 thumb Autumn Cupcakes

Bake according to package directions & let cool.

I placed the entire tin in the freezer for a quick cool down.

I could eat them just like this, without any frosting! They are so moist and spongy!

037 thumb Autumn Cupcakes

For a quick frosting I didn’t use frosting at all. I mixed up a package of Dream Whip, put it in a frosting bag with a wide tip and quickly swirled a generous amount on the top. Sprinkle cinnamon over the dream whip to make it all pretty!

DIY: Halloween Plate

1 148 thumb DIY: Halloween Plate

This DIY Halloween Plate is an easy Halloween craft.

While shopping at Michaels I’d saw that they had their Fall chargers on sale. I picked up this awesome orange charger knowing that I create a decorative Halloween Plate.

126 thumb DIY: Halloween Plate

Supplies needed:

1 Charger in your color choice

1 8×10 sheet of white cardstock

1 8×10 sheet of black cardstock

Glitter of your color choice

Mod Podge

Apply the Mod Podge to the outer rim of the plate then cover in glitter, shake off excess.

130 thumb DIY: Halloween Plate

The cut out is a Silhouette file found here.

I measured the interior of the plate surface and sized the file to match.

132 thumb DIY: Halloween Plate

I ungrouped the file and cut the circle only in white cardstock and glued it to the plate.

I did cut away some white cardstock near the bottom where the stars are.

137 thumb DIY: Halloween Plate

Then I opened the file again, sized it to the proper proportions and cut it out onto black cardstock.

I popped out the letters & the stars and then glued the black cardstock on top of the white.

I glued the stars as an accent on the lower right corner of the plate.
