My favorite season has finally arrived and that means coziness, gloomy days spent inside under a blanket, reading a good book. We were the other day considering with Klaus that we really are autumn people, we two. We love slow living, calmness and tranquility, as autumn is, slowing down and preparing itself for the long winter. At the same time, like a bright autumn day with all its colors, we have splashes of craziness and light, we want to try new things, discover and create. Autumn is such an artistic season. It is the best time to bake for me, because who wants to bake in hot summer days? Also, I’m dreading winter time, with its everlasting darkness that will surely bring out the miracles that my Canon 5D mark III is able to do in low-light situations. This added to the fact that autumn seasonal food is so inspiring, I rest my case and offer you these pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon frosting.
