It’s pumpkin season! Pumpkins, sweaters, and the return of good TV, mark the beginning of fall. After spending the summer months bathing in the summer sunshine, pumpkin treats help ease us out of our flip-flops and back into the school routine. In French, we call this, “La Rentrée.”
This year, to kick off pumpkin season, my daughter and two of her classmates got together for a special bake date. After spending the year together, these three friends transitioned to new classrooms with new teachers and students. Getting together to bake pumpkin cupcakes seemed like a perfect way to celebrate their year, and start the new school year off right.
Mini pumpkin cupcakes are flavored with the signature spices of fall, including ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Eat them plain. Or, top them with smooth mascarpone butter cream frosting. These bite-sized treats bake very quickly, and they are perfect for little hands and tiny tummies.
Celebrate this fall with good friends and mini pumpkin cupcakes. Bon Retour!
