Movember Mo' cupcakes!

November has arrived and with it come moustaches of all shapes, sizes, and varying levels of bushiness. We've gotten into the spirit by making some moustache cookies! We've baked them onto sticks for you to surreptitiously hold them up to your upper lip, if, perhaps, you are unable to grow your own. I must say, ours are very luxurious -and tasty!

November also brings with it a new cupcake of the month! In honour Morag's recent South African holiday, we have made a Coffee and Amarula cupcake. It's a a rich mocha cupcake with a boozy Amarula cream cheese buttercream frosting. Amarula is a South African cream liqueur made from the fruit of the Marula tree; in other words, it's pure South African deliciousness! When you bite into this cupcake it's as though you've just taken a sip of Irish -or in this case, South African- coffee! It's the perfect flavour combination for these crisp November days.

Even though November is the month between October's Thanksgiving and December's Christmas, we're still keeping the pumpkin craze going strong! (We don't want November to feel left-out!). We've made some pumpkin bread puddings with toasted pecans perched cozily on top, and I must say, I think they give last month's pumpkin pies a run for their money. Pop on by and we'll be sure to have a treat for you! After all, it's Movember, and that means mo' cupcakes.
