Food Friday: A Roundup of Fall Birthday (and Holiday) Cupcakes for Kids

Well, it happened.

Someone found me by Googling hedgehog cupcakes.

Which reminds me that was in a post about summer cupcakes, and it is high time for a roundup of fall cupcakes. Ready? Start your ovens!

(Complete recipe and decorating instructions linked to the titles.)

Pumpkin Patch

There are lots of weird, overly-orange-pumpkin-homage cupcakes out there. This isn’t one of them. I say this is pumpkin done to perfection.

Apple Cupcakes

This one is a little weird, only because I’m not sure I’m on board with red frosting. But what’s fall without an apple cupcake?

Touchdown Cupcakes

If you’re a football family, you’ll need to become a football cupcake family.

Wicked Witch Cupcakes

Halloween in general has gone off the deep end in recent years, but these are simple Halloween classics and won’t (I think) scare my children.

Hairy Daddy Longlegs Cupcakes

Cutest cupcake with least appealing name. I could have done without the word “hairy.”

Eyeball Cupcakes

How is it, exactly, that bloodshot eyes came to represent Halloween? I’m not sure how I would explain that to my kids, but these are the most beautiful bloodshot eyeball cupcakes I’ve ever seen.

Tombstone Cupcakes

Now these I love. Most delicious graveyard I’ve ever seen.

Sweet Monster Cupcakes

I was okay with the green on top, then I read something about a gooey, green pudding surprise inside. Pretty cute monster, though.

Thanksgiving Cupcakes

I won’t say no to toasted coconut!

Tiny Turkey Dinner Cupcake

Also, weirdest fall cupcake ever. Not really sure what to say here. But if someone Googles “cupcake that actually looks like a turkey dinner”  I am SO HERE FOR THEM.

And a few just for the grownups, though kids might like them, too. If you’re willing to share.

Zucchini-Ginger Cupcakes

This is suitable for breakfast in my book!

Cranberry Cupcakes with Dulce De Leche Pecan Frosting

You had me at “cranberry-flecked” cupcakes, ever before we started talking about the frosting.

Spiderweb Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

I’ll share the recipe for these soon (because I know you probably can’t read that one below), these are from the lovely Cupcake Deck which every cupcake lover should have. Gorgeous photos, beautiful, yummy cupcakes. Mine came this year on my birthday from a fellow cupcake lover, and I could (and probably will) make every single one in it.

Dean & Deluca Fall Cupcakes

Or just order these from Dean & Deluca.

Three each of Pumpkin with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Icing, Cinnamon with Mayan Chocolate Buttercream Frosting and Vanilla with Vanilla Frosting.

$55 for nine cupcakes plus shipping and WORTH EVERY PENNY, I AM SURE.

If someone wants to send them to me, I promise will do an exhaustive quality control check and report back.

Happy fall! And if you find a good fall cupcake photo, please share it in the comments.

    Well, now I want a cupcake! No worries on the camera info – whenever you get a chance. A Garmin is a GPS watch that tracks your pace and distance as you run, so you can get ridiculously obsessed with the ‘stats’ for all your runs. Now that I have one, I don’t know how I ran without it.

  2. Maria Says:

    thanks for this post. Always a fan of the cupcake….
    And you did my work for me….I have to bring food to the lecture I am giving to the nurses in the E.R. this Tuesday on eye emergencies…….REALLY what would be better than those life-like eye cupcakes? I’m serious! Thank you!
