Hummingbird Cupcakes

I just finished up a batch of Hummingbird Cupcakes. I love banana and pineapple, so needless to say this is one of my all time favorite cupcakes. If I could give you one tip when making this recipe, it would be to use (ripe) bananas. Not bananas that look perfect, but bananas that have brown in them. This really adds to the flavor. The brown baking cups I used are the standard liners, Cupcake Swirl carries.

October 1st Flip that Switch!

With Halloween approaching, you can bet your candy corn I am digging out the decorations! My house is "that" house on the block that is decorated for every holiday. I believe with all the work it takes putting up the decorations, you should enjoy them as long as you can! Halloween falls on a Friday night this year, so we (neighbors) are expecting a lot more "trick-or-treaters." Last year we actually ran out of candy-what a FAUX PAS!! That was 140 regular size candy bars on a school night! October is a busy month! I have- wedding shower cupcakes, a wedding cake, more cupcakes and Halloween parties! So, back to work on the decorating and I'll be ready to flip that switch Wednesday night!
