The smell of Autumn has been in the air lately even with the warmer temps! Can you smell it? Fresh apples and pumpkins everywhere. I love this time of the year. Halloween themed pops done in apple spice cake is certainly a treat appreciated by young and old. How about some of these cuties for your next party?
Tasty Tuesday everyone
Yes, I did make this cake and boy did the kids (and grown ups) love it! I must say it was pretty funny. The cake was chocolate and allergy friendly as it did not contain any dairy, eggs, or nuts. I do use coconut milk and a coconut spread in the frosting which does give it a nice light coconut’y flavor. So as long as you can have coconuts you can enjoy this!
Here is my recipe:
1/2 cup of shortening
1/2 cup of coconut spread ( I use Earth Balance Organic Coconut Spread)
2-3 Tbsp Coconut milk or Coconut creamer
1 tsp vanilla
approx 4 cups of powdered sugar
Beat the shortening and the coconut spread together mixing, then add your vanilla and half of the coconut milk/creamer. Add half of the powdered sugar and mix. Continually adding more powder sugar alternating with the coconut milk/creamer until you reach your desired consistency. You may use more or less of the milk/creamer and/or the powdered sugar.
I do find that due to the coconut milk this frosting does like to be kept cold and you should not make it too loose otherwise it will “droop” off of your cake. Been there done that!

Sprinkles are like edible glitter to me, they make everything so cute and sparkly. So naturally when I walk past them at any store I can’t help but stop, stare and usually add several to my cart. Don’t they just make you smile? While at Home Goods the other day I picked up a few bottles of them in wonderful pastel or what I like to say Spring-y colors! Sugar on Top is the brand and I just adore the lovely glass bottles that they put them in. I’m also a published paper crafter so when the jars are empty guess what I use them for? YES, GLITTER!!! and/or sequins which is another obsession of mine. In fact if you like paper crafts check out my group on Facebook called Papercrafters Cafe, it is for crafting whether it be cakes, knitting, paper crafting (primarily) or beading we would love to have you there.
