This cupcake is inspired by my favorite things.
First, fall because it’s my favorite time of year due to the changing of the seasons. It just symbolizes growth and change, which is symbolized in the pumpkin part of the cupcake and the meringue pumpkins.
The other one of my favorite things expressed in the cupcake is the whoopie pie style. It’s a Maine treat and since I have cousins up there, it reminds me of them in the cupcake due to the style.
I haven’t been able to visit them in almost a year and I miss them very much. That concludes my inspiration for the cupcakes!
