Q: Now that it is getting cooler here, it makes me think of apple picking and hay rides. Are you the type that likes to go to participate in all the fall festivities like apple picking, pumpkins, decorating for the fall, hay rides, baking fall goodies, etc. or do you just sit and count the days till Thanksgiving/Christmas/Hanukkah?
A: I love decorating for Halloween- we have jangling bone mobiles, spooky decorations in the windows, and a big purple tombstone in our little yard. I also have been making some delicious cupcakes with a fall flair: maple cupcakes decorated with tiny maple leaf candies, mexican hot chocolate cupcakes, chai latte with pumpkins stenciled on in sugar, and the magnificent guinness-cocoa cupcake. It makes the house seem fall-ish to smell maple goodness!!! I totally recommend this book-- I'm not a vegan, but these are by far the most delicious cupcakes I have ever eaten. And have you seen me before? Don't I look like I know my way around a cupcake or two?
