Today’s adventure in the kitchen was limited. I decided to do some major cleaning; of which I’m completely regretting now because my allergies are acting up. So to make everything sugar and spice and everything nice… I made some cupcakes. In my adventures to play with some food today, I wanted to be a bit creative and try making acorns. I of course got the idea from Duncan Hines; it’s always important to give your inspiration credit =), right? I did things a different, because that’s the way of the Jeannie, LOL.
Basically I just made chocolate cupcakes. Iced them with my new chocolate love, Wilton Brownie Fudge Icing. For the acorns I used some caramels, just do four at a time for 6 seconds in the microwave, and form into acorn shapes. I finished shaping all I needed first. After I dipped the tops of the acorn in some caramel frosting, followed by fall sprinkles, and a chocolate chip for the stem.
Happy cooking and baking,
