I have to say, halloween gives a very limited color scheme to play with so when I decided to play around with royal icing, the Day of the Dead gave me more inspiration. I suppose this time of year just reminds me of my trip to Mexico and the bright colors help me through the chills of the season. I used a slightly altered Rose Levy Beranbaum royal icing recipe and had some fun with my new skull cookie cutter.
It is that time of year! Pumpkin rolls, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin spice, pumpkin carving, I don’t know about you but I want pumpkin all the time these days. In fact I am having pumpkin, apple, and sausage stew for dinner as I write this.
When I started my job, my boss gave me a packet of recipes. The following was never one we used at work but I decided to make them special for brunch. Not too sweet, but plenty in pumpkin flavor, these moist muffins are a great start to a crisp fall morning.
