When I was young my parents always took us for a long car ride in the Fall to see the changing colors of leaves. I love red and gold and orange leaves and acorns. I am so lucky to live where there is an abundance of colorful leaves in the Fall. I used to collect acorn caps to use as cups in a woodland-tea-party setting with my dolls. So, on a apple-spice cake square, I have recreated Autumn leaves and acorns. The cake is dipped in white chocolate and the leaves and acorns are molded in colored chocolate clay. These are pretty small in real life-it all sits on top of a sucker stick. Beautiful colored leaves and melt-in-your-mouth apple-spice cake truffle. What more could you ask for? Yummy!
-Thought you might like to see some more Twig Weecakies. These are raspberry swirl cake, and the twigs go over the side of the cake square-just some variations of the earlier post.

Pumpkins are a very versitle vegetable. We enjoy the trailing vines and huge leaves winding their way throughout our gardens. We savor the mellow flesh in spicy pies, cakes, cookies and breads. Our family especially likes the seeds salted and roasted in the oven for crunchy snacks. Pumpkins have been the center of folk-lore, from Cinderella's fairy-carriage and Peter Peter's wife's domain to the frightening firey head tossed at the terrified Ichabod Crane. Pumpkin Weecakies, however, are uniquely different. They each have a yummy, mellow truffle center of either pumpkin-chocolate chip cake or apple spice cake. Each Weecakie is hand-formed into a pumpkin shape-some are long and skinny, some are pear-shaped, some are traditionally round, and some are just weird. All are dipped in pumpkin-colored white Callebaut chocolate and topped with a colored chocolate stem. They are perfect for all your Autumnal Celebrations. These are not ordinary cake pops. Pumpkin Weecakies are a fantastic taste treat that everyone will love-especially if your name is Peter, or Cinderella, or Prince Charming, or....YOU!
