These Best Fall Cupcakes are fancy enough for a formal autumn wedding, yet easy enough for a casual birthday party or dessert any night of the week, making them truly perfect for any occasion!
I have to confess, I made this list of Best Fall Cupcakes for somewhat selfish reasons.
My niece recently got engaged and set the date of her wedding for October 2021. She and her fiance are on a budget, so I offered to bake her wedding cake.
She wants a sweetheart cake (a smaller cake that is shared by the couple) and cupcakes for the guests.
She likes chocolate, especially dark chocolate, while her fiance prefers vanilla cake. This should be interesting.
I have always wanted to bake a wedding cake for some reason (I must be a glutton for punishment), so I’m pretty excited to take on this project.
I love fall, so I’m extra psyched that her wedding cake recipes will be fall themed.
That is why this list is a little selfish on my part.
I saved a bunch of autumn cupcakes ideas to Pinterest, but needed to organize my choices to help me figure out what cupcake flavors to present to the couple (we are doing a formal cake tasting!).
Luckily, anyone can benefit from an epic collection of Best Fall Cupcakes.
These Unique and Creative Fall Cupcakes are perfect for any occasion, from a formal wedding to a casual night at home!
In this collection, we truly have something for everybody. From vanilla to death by chocolate, you are sure to find some new fall favorites!
And, of course, I couldn’t forget classic fall flavors like pumpkin and apple!
This experience almost makes me want to start a wedding cake business, but I think we’ll see how this goes first lol. I’ll keep you posted 😉
