I’m not gonna lie, I started off with these tiny pie crust leaves and then thought of something to pair with them. I had leftover pie dough and a new leaf cookie cutter so voila- tiny pie crust leaves. How stinking cute are they?? I just love them and want to put them on everything.
Of course, what else goes with pie crust leaves, but spice cake cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Fall= pie and Fall= spice cake. So here we are.
If you can get past the cuteness of the leaves, then you will become a fast friend of this cupcake. These have that perfect fall spice taste plus cinnamon cream cheese frosting. I am a sucker for anything that cream cheese frosting goes on. And it’s super moist (ugh) which makes me want to share them with everyone I know so we can all know the deliciousness of this cupcake.
