... For whoopie pies! Pumpkin whoopie pies to be exact. Creamy vanilla buttercream sandwiched between two fluffy little pumpkin cakes.
I got the recipe from Jenna's blog. Love her for inspiring me to make fun stuff like this! (Is it weird that she has no idea who I am but in my mind we're on a first name basis?)
I've never made anything with pumpkin and this was my second attempt making a homemade frosting. I'm happy to report that these were a success. I ate two. Only one problem: Somehow I got frosting on the bottom of my jeans?
Apart from baking I've spent my Saturday listening to a random mix on iTunes (no Christmas music, though!) and putting the finishing touches on the Christmas tree.
The tree is scrawny but still looks pretty dressed up in red, white, and silver.
Some favorite ornaments:
Paul and I get one or two new ornaments together each year to celebrate each year that we're together. So our collection is small but building! That "K" ornament was meant for Kristi, but I forgot to send it to Afghanistan with her other presents. Every Christmas Kristi has a special place on the tree :)
With the lights out:
Pictures don't do it justice.
Now the only dilemma left for the night: Should I spend $4 to rent Twilight: Eclipse on iTunes or should I wait 3 months to get it on Netflix? Decisions, decisions...
