Autumn Birthday Celebration

Our favorite time of the year kicks off with our daughter’s birthday in October. We keep birthdays simple with just a few decorations and the cupcake flavor of her choice. Target had the wooden oval banner pieces in their dollar section so I just printed letters and glued them on. I also added letters to some leftover burlap. The leaves are also from Target. The highlight was SMORE’S cupcakes, which were so yummy.

I used the cupcake recipe from here but instead of making the meringue topping, I made marshmallow cream from Alton Brown’s recipe. As soon as the concoction was whipped thick, I put it in a plastic bag and piped it onto each cupcake. A quick torching browned them nicely.
