Apples, pumpkins and turkeys, Oh my! This collection of fall cupcakes will keep you happy baking for September, October and November. They are the perfect way to celebrate the season.
Fall is just around the corner and we all know what that means: time for baking! The grocery stores are already filling up their center aisles with specialty chocolates, candy, cupcake wrappers and themed sprinkles. I have a hard time walking away from displays like that. I just want to BAKE ALL THE THINGS!!!
It doesn’t help when half of your “online friends” are bloggers with their own fabulous ideas for fall treats. I collected a few cute fall cupcakes ideas to try this year. (I gotta say, I’m loving the Thanksgiving cornucopia!) To see the recipes for each one, just click on the title under the picture and you’ll be taken to that particular post.
Happy baking and happy fall (almost.)

OK, so I know these aren’t cupcakes, but they ARE cute, and they are one of the first seasonal things I ever made for the blog. They don’t taste like a pumpkin (no pumpkin spice) but they look like one!
