How to make fall leaf cupcakes

Hello Cake Journal fans! I am Jasmin Fine of 1 Fine Cookie, and am pumped to become a part of the CJ family. There is no better place to be if your passion is desserts and decorating.

With the weather starting to cool down, and the days becoming shorter I felt a fall themed dessert was in order. These fall leaf cupcakes can be managed by even a beginner baker.

You will need:

A recipe for white cake batter
Red, orange, brown, and yellow food coloring
Leaf-shaped cookie cutter
Silicone baking cups
Frosting

Step one:

Make your cake batter. Pour some of the batter into four small bowls. Mix in food coloring for whatever colored leaves you would like on your cupcake.

Step two:

Pour and spread a thin layer of each batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake and once cool, use your mini leaf cookie cutter to create colorful leaves.

Step three:

Place leaves around the side of silicone baking cups. Pour in white cake batter and add more leaves to inside, as well as on top. Bake cupcakes until they begin to brown.

Allow to cool and pipe or spread frosting. Feel free to add food coloring to frosting for a pop of color.
