Living in the Mid-Atlantic, I’m spoiled by Mother Nature and all of the beautiful fall colors that she has to offer. These Chocolate Leaves and stunning colored cupcakes were 100% inspired by the changing leaves on the trees, in the wind, and on the ground here in West Virginia. Fall Leaves Cupcakes are easy to make and are absolutely stunning to serve.
I loved the BIG, beautiful chocolate leaves that I made in the top photo. They were really impressive and I used the leaves on the cupcake liners as the template. However, they were a bit too big and a bit too fragile and they broke before I could get more than three photos.
So, I made some more chocolate leaves and this time they were a smaller and not so fragile and detailed. I still like them, but I think that the top ones are a lot better 🙂
I love the yellow, orange, and red swirls on the frosting. Isn’t it pretty! Doesn’t it just scream FALL to you? Well it does to me.
