Fall is probably my most favorite season of the year, but here in Florida it seems like Fall often times is only here for a short while. It goes from being really hot, to not as hot, then gets pretty cold. I wish we had time to appreciate the color changing of the leaves and the convenience of leaving our windows open, and this year it seemed like that was happening for about a week. So, instead of waiting for that cool air to come, I decided to go ahead and start baking "fall" flavor cupcakes. The first ones were Caramel Apple....an apple spice cupcake with caramel buttercream icing drizzled with melted caramel on top. These cupcakes were AMAZING and made my house smell so good! So for at least one day this month the "Fall" feeling was in the air :)

For a long time now I have been seeing the cutest cupcake toppers online, so I made it a point to figure out how to make them. I did find a website called www.picnik.com where you can create your own toppers, but the clipart is pretty limited. While I was shopping in Michaels this weekend I also discovered that I could buy circle cut outs and stickers to make these. So, that is what I did. I bought some birthday stickers along with pink, green, blue and yellow card stock cutouts that match the birthday napkins and popsicle sticks and started crafting :) Here is what I came up with for the birthday girl....

I can't wait to add these to some delicious cupcakes this weekend....Happy Birthday Paige :)
