Oh, comme il est si petit!

On Saturday afternoon I popped into Two Little Red Hens to grab a scone to have for breakfast before my flight to California. While I was waiting for the crowds to part so I could see what breakfast pastries were left, I noticed a new kind of cupcake in the display case: pumpkin.

That's right, folks! It's officially fall - the kind folks at Two Little Red Hens say so!

I added a miniature pumpkin cupcake to my scone order and scooted home to enjoy it in private. It was, in a word, delicious. The frosting was a whipped cream cheese, flavored with a touch of pumpkin. The cake itself was remarkably moist, but delicate and with a soft, light crumb. And at about three bites, the miniature version was a perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

And super-cute, to boot!
