Every fall, everyone goes all out Pumpkin. I mean, It’s Decorative Gourd Season, Motherf*****s!
So I’ve willingly and joyfully accepted the season by fulfilling my duty as Indian Martha Stewart and baking pumpkin cupcakes. If you know me you know that I absolutely love Ina Garten (and Martha, but Ina more so). Even if she cooked like Rachel Ray I would watch her show for the mere sexual tension between her and every (gay) man she cooks for on the show. She’s reminds me of a squirrel, eating, giggling (squirrels giggle), flipping her hair, pining for attention from her husband, and her florist, and her neighbor, everyone. And come on HUSBAND (Jeffrey), show her some love! You guys had that awkwardly illegal relationship when she was in high school and you were in college. You were her brother’s friend! Breaking bro-code. I mean, it’s fine. She made him brownies. She also used to work for the White House as a policy analyst, but we get it, she’s amazing.
I love her show, I love her cooking. And here is her recipe.
The Maple Frosting I found to be super delicious, and so simple:
- cream cheese
- unsalted butter
- Natural Maple Flavor
- pure vanilla extract
- sifted confectioners’ sugar
