Pumpkin Cupcakes and a TV Appearance

This is a really exciting week for me and I have so much to share. So, I am going to do another Wordful Wednesday with SevEn cLoWn CirCus.

We had another Iron Cupcake: Milwaukee competition Monday. This time, the theme was Thanksgiving. This was my entry:

Pumpkin Gingerbread Cupcakes
This is a Pumpkin Gingerbread Cupake with an orange-colored sugar glaze and a cinnamon stick for the stem. I set it atop a bed of spun sugar to look like straw in the garden and garnished it with mint for the vines. I made these last year for our Thanksgiving table so, I thought that it worked with the theme very well. What do you think?

In addition to the competition on Monday, I am going to be on TV Friday!! Our local NBC affliliate, TMJ4 is airing a story about people making money from home. My chocolate shop on Etsy is being featured!! How cool is that?? So, if you are in the Milwaukee area, tune in Friday at 10:00 p.m! Otherwise, I will post it on Saturday:-)
