Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. When I was young, I used to love getting dressed up to go trick-or-treating around my neighborhood. There was this one house that always gave out king size candy bars – we always went there first! Now that I am a little too old to go around to my neighbors asking for candy, I love to make my own mini halloween pumpkin spice cakes.
The cakes are spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and other pumpkin pie spices. Mini Halloween cakes are perfect for a party or get together because each person can have their own little dessert.
Try going for a dark orange glaze. I mixed red and orange food coloring together, but I wish I had made the color a more vibrant orange. When added on top of the caramel color cakes, the orange appears lighter than it did in the bowl. I think I’m going to try a darker orange color next time.
