Tell me: What are your favorite fall flavors?


  1. It’s so true, isn’t it! I haven’t seen Pumpkin Fritters before and those look sinfully delectable.

    But you know what else everyone loves this time of year? Pumpkin spice lattes. I hadn’t had one until last year and fell in love. I loved it so much I decided to try to capture the taste in the form of a cake and well, I’m not one to boast but let’s just say I succeeded! I made a Browned Butter Pumpkin Spice Cake with Vanilla Bean-Latte Swiss Meringue Buttercream. and it’s so crazy delicious (I guess I am one to boast, at least about this cake anyway!). You can see it here: It made it and brought it to work and literally had a line at my desk it was so popular.
