mini pumpkin cakes with cream cheese filling

well i'm officially in pumpkin blogland.
it's 99 degrees out, it thunderstorms every afternoon, 
and all the leaves are bright green.

but it's orange and yellow and brown in pumpkin blogland.
so i might as well join 'em while i can so i can at least get the fall season around these florida parts even if summer goes year round.

so let's get on with the pumpkins.
i used this recipe and the cakes were really moist and yummo!
the recipe is super easy with only one step, 
but i colored mine just for fun. 
 the colors are very subtle and not done in an ombre fashion when i poured the mix in the pan.
i just thought the different colors would be pretty... 
ok so truth be told, i never meant for these cakes to be so darn FLUFFY! 
and was quite surprised when i took them outta the oven. 

orginally i was gonna level the bottoms off to make them flat but that's when i came up with the idea to use the fat bottoms.

you'll see why in a sec.

first, let's fill them up with more yumminess right after the cakes are all cooled.
carefully remove that little stem part. 
the different color of the stem made it stand out, 
something else that was a happy accident.
then get some green sprinkles and 
sprinkle them on the bottom edge part.
and you will get:
wanna see the inside?
ok never mind. 
let's just get them in line now.




jeepers, no wonder Charlie Brown had trouble finding the real Great Pumpkin...
either way, i hope you make these cuz truth be told, 
they do taste pretty great.

  3. LOL I always laugh out loud at your annual comment about how Halloween comes so early in blogland. I was looking at a link party 2 weeks ago - TWO WEEKS AGO! (still summer, ya know?) and there was a patch of lil pumpkins peeking up at me. I thought, "Holy Cow! I am REALLY far behind!"
    But these are so cute and just look so darn spunky and happy - kinda like their mama who created them!
