I had a request for a pumpkin themed bridal shower this week.  Kind of odd, I thought, but I took it as a challenge. 

Since rose just had two pumpkin cakes I could find, and I was scared of testing them as cupcakes, I ventured out to find one that was sure to be foolproof.  I stuck to her caramel silk meringue buttercream but added 1 tablespoon (this is for TCB version) of pink himalayan salt.  Super, duper UNBELIEVABLY good.  I tried her spun sugar techniques from the St. Honore Triffle in RHC and then I rolled out some marzipan pumpkins and pumpkin blossoms too. 

Hope they’re happy because they taste divine!

Those are sooo gorgeous!  Your tiny little pumpkins are perfect!  And all those little nests of caramel, too!  I’ll be they were absolutely thrilled. smile

Your cupcakes are so beautiful.  I’m sure they received lots of oohs and aahs, followed by yums.
