Pumpkin Spice Muffin Tops

This was my first time to make muffin tops, but it was so much fun!

Elaine is so right about muffin tops (lol).

They are the best.

The flavor?

Pumpkin spice, of course.

I didn’t follow any specific recipe, so I was a bit worried, but they turned out great!

The texture is just like those muffin tops.

They can go into these cool treat bags, too, if you feel generous enough to share (lol).

But wait!

How about drizzling spice mocha icing over them.


Crunchy at the bottom and soft and moist inside.

Did somebody say “Halloween”?

I’m not very organized or prepared when it comes to events, but as a food blogger I feel I can’t miss this one.

The decoration is minimum this year (well, the bats were hand-crafted a few years ago), but it’s still fun to participate in this event even in a small way.

    These are PERFECT. The best part of the muffin is always the top… these definitely need to make an appearance in my kitchen/on my plate soon!
