Bliss




Its been raining, pouring, and freezing (48 degrees in Oct??) the past couple of days. So there is nothing better to do than cuddle with your sweetie and heat up that oven for some TRUE bliss!!!






I am talking cupcakes here peeps. Get your minds out of the gutter. Here is a GOOD one for ya:



Pumpkin Bliss Cupcakes



3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tbsp., plus 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

3 cup sugar

1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree

4 large eggs 1 cup vegetable oil

¾ cup orange juice



Preheat oven to 350°. Line the muffin pans with liners or spray them with baking spray. Sift together the flour, spice, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, pumpkin and eggs, and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the oil and the orange juice until the batter is smooth. Add the flour-spice mix to the pumpkin mixture and fold together until well incorporated, but do not overmix. Bake 20–25 minutes. Frost with cream cheese frosting.



Creme Cheese Frosting


4 oz. unsalted butter at room temperature

8 oz. Philadelphia cream cheese at room temperature

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

5 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

Cream the butter and cream cheese together until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and beat. Add 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar at a time and continue to beat frosting for about 5 minutes.


Little Ms LOVED the frosting!!





And if you think she was jumping off the walls from all the sugar. Well.....
