Pumpkin Bottom Cupcakes

So it’s September and it’s 90 degrees I don’t care… Fall is my favorite season It’s just nice weather, delicious  food and veggies come to farmer and normal markets, I love the colors and smells of fall… I love Halloween but that’s a whole different post… maybe I can find pictures of little me at my dads house… I also love all the other holidays after fall. Also I will be 27 this november. It’s gonna be interesting, that’s for sure. Mos def.

So I got a little crazy and started to make  fall-esq desserts… I also kinda only have one photo of these… I had an incident happen and well I only have one photo but it’s okay.

Have you ever had a black bottom cupcake? it’s like that minus the chocolate and chocolate chips… It’s pumpkin cake with a cheese cake type filling after a baked them I realized butterscotch chips in the cheesecake part if you want the texture of the extra flavor. This cupcake is luscious and will get you into the mood for fall.

I don’t really have anything interesting to say… Just kinda busy at work, and I visited a best friend from college  over labor day weekend which was awesome. I’ve gone on some terrible dates I mean terrible… I am sitting here thinking about how I miss someone from the summer time whom which I probably should not… Listening to Lana Del Rey isn’t helping…

Let’s start the fall season.
